    January 30, 2020 - 14.8% ABV. I let it breathe for 1.5 hrs. Drank over 2. Wow. A big, thick, ripe, polished, inky cab with anise notes. As rich as it gets. The anise is a bit too much for me, though. I'll try with a meal on day 2, though. Maybe that would cut the anise.

    September 14, 2019 - Among the best Cabs I have tasted. I don’t think they get much better. Dark red, full bodied, lovely aromas, rich dark fruit flavors, excellent balance of tannins and oak, long finish. Perfect with BBQ steaks. No age deterioration. It is a privilege to drink this outstanding wine.

    August 28, 2017 - Wow, still going strong. Plum, dark fruit, well integrated tannins. Silky and velvety. Fantastic.

    April 26, 2016 - Wow. Probably drinking too many 2010-2012s so this beauty with some additional age on it was singing. Very well integrated with notes of dried cherry, currants on the palate. Not he nose to me had some spice, herbs, pine. More complex than expected. Yes new world, big Cali cab, but this is impressive and would convert many Bordeaux drinkers I imagine. Smooth, velvety, layered mouth feel, like a Bevan wine. N

    February 1, 2015 - Big, dense, beautiful nose of licorice, dark fruit, blackberry, currant, spice and oak. This is big on the palate with loads of tannins, heat from the high alcohol yet there' an elegant power. It needs time - lots of it. But well done for a big new world Cali cab.
