    September 2, 2019 - It’s not rock and roll, it’s precise and elegant piano jazz, but I like it (a lot). Dark red fruit with eucalyptus, allspice, and maybe a little chocolate. Rich, soft texture, with structure but no tannic bite. For a musical tasting note, try Night and the City by Kenny Barron and Charlie Haden. This is one of the best wines I’ve ever enjoyed, and the Barron/Haden recording is the same kind of lifetime favorite.

    February 28, 2019 - Dark red and black fruits, sour cherry, licorice, vanilla, tobacco leaf, great profile, I liked it about the same as the '05 but for different reasons, wasn't as much as a power house but had better complexity.

    February 28, 2019 - Mostly Napa Cabernet Dinner (Eddie V's - Tysons Corner, VA): Expressive nose displaying crème de cassis, crushed blackberry, a hint of plum, lavender, lead pencil, cedar and limestone dust. Beautifully integrated youthful palate, slightly lean pure black fruit, silky and polished, slightly lean, bright acidity, strong mineral presence, silky tannins and a long clean finish with lead pencil and lavender at the end. A nice contrast to the 05 as this is a classic Napa cab.

    February 14, 2019 - From a 375. Lovely nose of fruit with some menthol, black cherry palate with eucalyptus following. Clean finish.
    Elegant, balanced. Has many years ahead to become even more complex. Would have guessed Dunn HM if tasted blind.
    Next day rounder, chewier, softer. Seems to have gained a lingering finish.

    January 1, 2019 - 2019 New Years Day Tasting (Milton, GA): Brighter reddish violet, semi-translucent; sweet herbs and cassis, blueberry, oak still fairly strong, tart berry, ripe and concentrated without being overly extracted; very good with long life ahead.
