    June 27, 2019 - Wine Boys - 2005 Bordeaux plus some Ringers: PnD 2/3 of the bottle. Let air for 1hr.

    Tasted blind.

    Clear medium garnet.

    Funky tobacco raspberry and cassis nose.

    Last bottle.

    Earthy tobacco mineral and black raspberry on the nose. Nice but not the wow of previous bottles. Suggestions that this is past its optimal drinking window are confirmed.

    August 11, 2018 - PnP, Good Cork, consumed over 4 hours. 2nd to last bottle in the case. Given the reasonable cost of this wine, I would say in general most of the bottles have been a pretty good value. This bottle was somewhat disappointing. Certainly drinkable and still enjoyable, but lacking the life of past tastings. Monolithic. 90

    May 10, 2018 - This has to be one of the finest cabs for the price ever produced. My last bottle. Still has tannins to carry it further. Aromatic, silky, nice balance.
    Great wines age well......this is no exception.

    April 17, 2018 - Nicely aged wine that seems to be drinking at its best
    Nose has spice, cassis, dark fruit.
    Palate is nice. It not very complex. The notes are nice but there aren't many of them.
    Good QPR.
    Would buy again.

    March 30, 2018 - Still has some backbone. Cedar on the nose. Tannins dominate on the palate with the same clipped finish I noted before and vanilla at the end. Still enjoyable but time to bid this winner goodbye. Last bottle of a great 2 cases. Score [50 + 5 + 14 + 17 + 8 ] = 94.
