    September 8, 2019 - Deep, dark reddish-purple garnet in color with ever-so-slight clearing at the edges. Full, forward & fragrant nose of ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, blackberries & cassis with classic cigar box overtones of cedar & tobacco, leather, earthy/dusty, some herbal notes of juniper & mint, coffee/cocoa, minerals, some spices & a hint of vanilla in the background. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & silky smooth textured, ripe fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberries & plums with cocoa, herbs, minerals, spices & a hint of oak/vanilla in the background. Long lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting & airing but even at 17 years of age, it should hold at its present plateau of development for several years longer if cellared properly. A beautiful, smooth & elegant Napa Cabernet.

    July 23, 2019 - Mature cab drinking well but maybe fading a little. Deliocious with grilled tenderloin. Drink up

    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.
