    July 13, 2018 - Decanted 30 min. Big beautiful Cabernet. Blackberries and cola on the nose, black plum and boysenberry on the palate. Still good tannin structure. Cork held up perfectly, glad I still have one bottle left. I think this bottle still has a couple of years.

    January 12, 2013 - Very classic rich cabernet. Plenty of dark fruit, a bit of cigar-box, and a long finish. At $50 this was a very fair deal. Went well with a rare ribeye.

    September 14, 2012 - Simply marvelous. Earthy, full-bodied, intriguing from the first sip and better over the first hour. Top notch stuff and have to say, darn good value even at the price. Have had several cabs at 2x that paled in comparison. Alcohol well in check, no worries there. Can I go back in time and get more?

    $65.99 OH Retail.

    November 17, 2009 - This is big. As soon as it hits your nose you know this is a serious wine. It has a big fruity nose a lot like a zinfandel. Very dark in color. Minerals, spices, graphite, and roses join the fruit on the nose. Big blueberry fruit like clone 6 or 7. Silky tannins accent a very smooth mouth feel for such a big wine. Plenty of structure, with lots of those non fruit enhancing flavors like cocoa and nutmeg.Vanilla, leather and fruit on the substantial finish.
