    February 21, 2020 - I've loved this wine since its release. I just drank my last bottle (of 7) and I can say it was good to the last drop. This is an incredible wine at this price point. It drank well young, and drank as a 15 year old wine should drink when aged well. I truly believe this wine holds up or exceeds NV Cabs at 4x the price point.

    February 24, 2017 - This deep red/garnet wine is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 4% Malbec and 2% Petit Verdot. Nicely aromatic, it offers spiced plum, black cherry, tar and earth on both the nose and palate. Medium-bodied, seamlessly alcoholic (despite being listed as 14.8%), softly tannic and with low acidity, it stays solid in the middle and finishes with medium length. Round textures and bright fruit place this 12-year-old wine right in its "sweet spot." It should be enjoyable throughout the remainder of this decade. Drink now-2020.

    April 17, 2014 - Still going strong. Balanced. Chocolate and berry flavors dominate. Very tasty.

    June 20, 2013 - Had this wine during a gathering and didn't make detailed notes. What I do remember was that it was very good and was surprised that it hadn't reached the end of it's life yet.
