    May 17, 2019 - 30 minute decant. This was a big Napa cab in a great way. Not over the top in my opinion like Caymus or others in that category. Probably could have used an hour decant as the secondary flavors and a nice acidic backbone really started to show after a couple hours. Just a pleasure to drink right now.

    February 19, 2019 - Beautiful aromas with very appealing aromas of great bonfire, seductive coffee, dry leather and dark mature blackcurrant. Really something! Slight careful start, which grows to a medium / medium + bodied wine. Attractive fruit feeling with blackcurrant, coffee, leather, light dry wood and some mushroom feeling. Very nicely bitten in the tannins, which just manage to avoid feeling too rough. Long and comfortable finish with a touch of coffee. Wine that has fifteen years left, but which gives a lot of pleasure after a couple of hours. Shows great potential. 94 points.

    February 18, 2019 - Very well made. This wine has a good deal of age to it but has the structure to hold for another 10-15 years. Flavors of ripe dark fruit. Velvety and round. Works great with beef. One downside which seems to present in all of their wines. The alcohol is pretty high at 15%. This hurts the balance of this otherwise fine wine. Without this heat it would score 94/95 easily.

    February 4, 2019 - Integrated tannins and receding alcohol "bite" make this wine smooth as silk at 12 years old. Graphite nose, lots of weight, primary fruit and refined power. Long finish. Worth the wait.

    December 25, 2018 - Cherry, floral notes in the nose. Lots of depth; tight body unfolds to oak, mushroom, jammy fruit, and pepper. Nice long finish. Paired well with rib roast, and I would say probably any fatty piece of meat. Was dismal with 85% chocolate, and anything else that was remotely sweet. If I had another bottle, I'd try it with pork belly. It may hold for another couple of years but why wait?

    (Beaulieu Vineyard (BV) George de Latour Private Reserve) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-some charcoal; mulberry; very dark fruit; almost like dark cherries coming through as well; interesting; PALATE-grape big league chew coming through on the mid-palate; very candied; definitely over oaked for me, although an intriguing refinement on the finish showing cassis, liqueur, leather notes; clearly currant, black cherries and blackberries; dark, smooth and rich; this is Steak House city; well made; a PAZZZ for me, BUT relatively well priced for the CULT wines it competes against (Insignia, Opus One, Dominus, Montelena); there is a delicious factor and very smooth; very classic Napa Cab Cult wine; RP-91; WE-95; GV-90
