    January 15, 2023 - Quite smooth about 1/2 of the double magnum was with sediment but the first 1/2 a bottle baby button smooth, all the good things with little fruit and nothing bad its excellent bottle just not as bright for a higher score.

    January 13, 2021 - This is quite tasty! Gorgeous nose (A-). Rich palate (B++/A-).

    December 17, 2016 - Hitting the spot tonight. Dark fruit, baker's chocolate, cigar box, saddle leather, good acidity, dusty dark tannins that linger on the finish. I've had highly respected left bank Bordeaux that didn't come close to this. I'm giving it a extra point for over achieving.

    March 12, 2016 - Lots of red fruit and cigar box. Resolved tannins, good acidity. Short finish, but can't complain at the price point ($16 at auction).

    October 13, 2015 - Didn't know what to expect from this case bought at auction on a whim, but it's considerably better than a 21 year old $15 bottle of Cali Cab has any right to be. Positives: the fruit is still lively, and it's nicely balanced between tart red berries, plum, cigar box, saddle leather, mocha and a bit of bell pepper on the longish finish. Detractors: it's relatively light bodied, and despite the flavours I listed above, it's a little simple and soft.

    But hey, who's complaining?! Not me.
