    March 2, 2016 - A powerful and rich Cabernet that is ready to drink now. Dark red in color; full in body; nose of chocolate and straw. Ripe and round tastes of plum, sweet cherry, granite, and eucalyptus. 14.7% alcohol. Tasted next to a 2013 Carter, which showed a touch more sophistication (along with the expected energy and freshness of youth). Drink now.

    December 5, 2015 - Nose: Blackberry, cassis, violet/floral, hot gravel, cigar wrapper and sweet spices. Hypothetical CA Pauiilac? Palate: Gorgeous layered black fruit. Blackberry, Cassis, licorice. Graphite and some more floral and oak tones. Not a ton of glycerin here, which I liked, and a fantastic spice element that pops in the mid-palate. Chinese five spice and the signature To Kalon sweetness. Finish: Long and black fruited.

    Opened this for my dad's 64th. I am guessing there is some bottle variation here because I had none of DryCab's experience with this.

    September 18, 2015 - Of the bottles I drank, this was by far the best. Decanted for 2 hours, it opened up nicely with a powerful bouquet of oaky plum and black fruit and flavors of spice and black cherry fruit.

    December 31, 2014 - After decanting for an hour, this bottle was less than expected, even paired with a great filet. The fruit was unrecognizable, yet the finish was tight and short.

    December 13, 2014 - Benchmark deep, rich, cassis laden, delicious from the first sip Napa Cab. Drinking great! We decanted it with an aerator and the room filled up with the delicious aroma of rich wine. Drink it now but it will age another 3-5 years easily.
