    July 7, 2021 - My final bottle of this vintage, and I enjoyed each and every one. By now the wine is throwing off a lot of sediment, but it still tastes youthful. That being said, it seems much less restrained than some Napa cabs. Popped 'n poured at a NYC steakhouse, it was very enjoyable with a long finish. After about an hour some of my group noticed a spearmint flavor in the wine. Although I wonder if the mint that was served with the Mutton had anything to do with that.

    June 27, 2021 - Monthly Tasting Group: Bordeaux and Cabs 2009 and Older (Chez Dalluge, MN): These babies have been all over the map in the past with very good to great bottles. Very dark red color, 5mm tranisition. Small glass over 30 minutes. Woodsy, oak influence, black fruits, juicy cassis, good dry extract, graphite. I've got one of these left myself but I'm in no hurry. 92+pts.

    June 23, 2021 - Last bottle was in 2013, and this has evolved tremendously. It was truly outstanding for my palate. Still plenty of fruit, with good acidity to make it food friendly and keep it from being flabby. Nice texture and beautifully balanced. My previous notes had indicated a bit too much vanilla/oak, but those were nowhere to be seen in this bottle. Just terrific, too bad it is my last of the '06. Kudos to ACV for making an ageworthy wine. Paid $30 for this many years ago and it was a steal.

    April 23, 2021 - A blast of cassis from the bottle when opened. Usually takes a while to open, but this bottle was ready to go immediately. Nose was slightly mted with cassis, spice, some florals (unusual for this wine), earth, a touch of tar and more plum than I would like. Got cranberry after about an hour. More dried than fresh fruits and the dried-fruit character reminded me of an Austrailin shiraz blended with a Chateaudeuf-du-Pape. Pleanty of structure, and a long finish but not quite as powerful as prior bottles. This is my last bottle (of a case), but I'm not sure if it's representative. Either way, I would begin drinking up if I had more.
