    September 1, 2018 - In a perfect drinking window for my palate. Signature Forman with lots of complex flavors of tar, tobacco and bell pepper married to rich black cherries. Great concentration of fruit with structure keeping everything in check. Long finish.

    June 15, 2018 - Blind 2001/2002 Cab Tasting (Chez Hughes): Blind side-by-side with the 2001. Quite similar to the '01 aromatically with just a bit more earthy funk, otherwise similarly intense and complex with plum complemented by tar, tobacco, cedar and herbs. More gritty than the velvety 2001. Concentrated fruit has power, yet the overall impression is elegant. Initially not as precise as the 2001, but this kept improving throughout the night.

    June 15, 2018 - California Cabernet 2001/2002 Blind Tasting (Hughes House - Chicago IL): Double blind in 01/02 Cali Cab tasting. Slightly ripe than its paired wine ('01) with slightly better concentration, but less complex and unfolding flavors and aromas. Very good now. My 2nd favorite of the tasting, almost as good as the '01 in the next glass. Correctly ID'ed the vintage.

    October 21, 2017 - Pop n' pour and enjoyed over 3-4 hours. Wow, gorgeous enticing nose of sweet plum and cherry fruit with bell pepper, sweet tobacco, mineral and spice. The palate has concentration and vibrancy. Silky tannins. A wine that is delicious and compelling now, with a long life ahead.

    October 18, 2017 - Full, rich nose of blackcurrant, dried plum and cedary oak. Mature and ready. Nice savory edge. Leather and sweet tobacco add good depth.
    Full, rich palate. Dark dried fruit. Black currant and minty aromas. Less oaky on palate. Very vital but not for further cellaring. Some Bdx-vibes. Ripe and melted tannins. Lacks a bit grip but quite long finish.
