    July 20, 2020 - WIML93

    Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of violets, boysenberries, plums, rust and earth. Flavors of boysenberries, raspberries and cherries. Tangy acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with a little air to open up.

    September 7, 2019 - This remains one of my favorites and best values. It is at prime now and very smoot, long finish, dark berries and long finish.

    September 5, 2019 - Similar notes as tasting two years ago. Lots of deep, dark berry fruit in the nose and flavor. Blackberries, plums, black cherries, licorice, and coffee in the nose, blackberries, black cherries, chocolate, and licorice on the palate. Well balanced, long finish, and full bodied.

    September 2, 2019 - Drank my next to last bottle last evening with Osso bucco. Opened about one hour before drinking. Delicious mature cab. Very elegant with no rough edges. Just delicious. Drink or hold.
