    January 18, 2020 - Surprisingly delicious. Still rich with mild tannins.

    December 16, 2019 - 1994 California Cabernet Blind Tasting (Michelangelo Hotel, New York): Flawed.

    December 8, 2019 - Deep red-black in color. Offering just a bit of char and tar at opening, this wine softened after 45+ minutes of air into a toasty, deep and tightly wound mix of blackberry, licorice and a hint of smoke. Drink up.

    June 10, 2019 - The wine looks ruby colored. There is heavy sediment in the bottle.
    The body is medium. The wine has narrow texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

    December 6, 2018 - Perhaps I waited too long. This bottle started out sort of funky and not so nice, but then after a while in the glass it developed into something quite nice. I'll try the rest of the bottle in a day or two and see if it has developed further.
