    October 10, 2019 - DInner at "The Ranch" 10/9/19, Consumed with grilled steak dinner. Wine seemed more developed than suggested drinking window would imply; yet the wine did develop and open up over time in glass.
    My initial response, compared to the previous wine, 07 BV Tapestry, was that this was a less acidic wine, the suggested fruits were blue, as opposed to BV's red. There is also a black peppery finish. Definitely a Boreaux blend. Nice wine.

    October 9, 2019 - Fall Fishing Day (The Ranch, WI): Very dark red/purple color. PNP, drank a glass plus over 3 hours. 72CS, 15CF, 10M, 3PV. Drinking this next to the '07 Tapesrty and '10 Two Blondes, this was the wine seemed the most different. A more distinctive green nose stands out, dark cherry, plum, woodsy and peppered. The palate is quite spicy and peppery, blackberry, plum, a bit grapey, green, high toned, dense and full bodied The green edge does mellow, but you still can't totally shake it and that's one of those things that bugs me. 90+ to 91pts.

    August 30, 2019 - Opened and decanted at a NYC restaurant for over 30 minutes before starting to drink. Notes of cooked blueberries on the nose and palate. It was really enjoyable, right from the first sip, but it just kept getting better though out the evening. By the end of the evening the cooked fruit notes seemed to be replaced by more non-cooked fruit flavors. Nice structure, long finish. We had this alongside a 2010 Quilceda Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Galitzine Vineyard, and this was the better wine of the night.

    April 21, 2019 - A straightforward cab nose of cassis and moderate oak. In the mouth the wine comes alive, with plenty of dark plum and juicy blackberry balanced against shades of tobacco and hints of pepper and baking spice. A full bodied, juicy wine with nice balance and rounded edges. Very good now and for at least a few more years.

    March 14, 2019 - This wine changed in the glass like an old world Bordeaux...and that was after an hour decant. Lots going on here starting with dark blackberry fruit with classic old world notes of leather, cassis and barnyard...with a touch of mushroom on the finish. Lots of structure and wonderfully balanced with super smooth tannins...this will only get better with even more age.
