    December 15, 2019 - A real pleasant surprise. All you would have hoped for in an aged Cali Cab... very Bordeaux like

    May 27, 2018 - On a downhill slide, but still very enjoyable. Based on this bottle, would drink sooner rather than later. Pop and pour, drank over 90 minutes.

    August 24, 2017 - Chicago Wine Flock...Bill Having Fun with Flights (Wilmette, IL): Tasted double blind. Black cherry, plum aromas and flavors with very good balance. Nicely elegant. Moderate weight and length. I thought it from Bordeaux.

    April 2, 2017 - Beautiful and lithe. Elegant nose captures the best of 1998 and proves that people who knew to pick before the rains came made great wines

    November 26, 2016 - All pencil lead and subdued dark fruits. Medium bodied, very easy to drink. Herbal, green tones. Mature. A bit of raw tannin left, but very nice.
