    November 1, 2020 - At the end of its life but still a powerful heritage. Dark fruit and cherries on the nose, very smooth through the finish.

    February 26, 2018 - Loved how this has matured! Bottle #6 of 6, from memory of last night's consumption...fully-resolved tannins leaving gobs of sweet red and blue fruits in perfect balance with the other components of the wine. Not great complexity, but lusciously enjoyable. I'd call this its peak, wouldn't wait much longer.

    June 7, 2014 - Focused cabernet with bottle age, explosive bramble fruit and finesse ridden peppery finish. Good balance with oak. Time to drink.

    May 10, 2014 - Still a decent wine, but may be starting to decline.

    Time to finish these up
