    April 25, 2019 - Decanted and served. Thick body with notes of volcanic soil along with a very intense, palate-filling dark fruit. Perhaps a bit overstated for my taste but a jolly, delicious wine.

    November 23, 2018 - Oh my. Decanted for 1.5 hrs. Black fruit and tobacco on the nose. Tannins were perfectly balanced. Dare say a 100 point wine.

    October 19, 2018 - Wine Spectator newbies; 10/18/2018-10/20/2018 (Marriott Marquis): Very dark sweet fruits here. Again some vanilla and a bit more pepper here than the '05 had. Get the oak in this. I think maybe just needs some more time.

    August 26, 2018 - Fabulous wine. Schrader never makes a bad wine especially if you like amped up Cabernets! Great with food and easy drinking afterward. Had a little left and finished it next day. Still had the traditional Schrader characteristics.

    August 16, 2018 - A wonderfully balanced yet powerful cabernet that live up to its billing. Decanted for 3 hours, it was a bold cab with black fruit and forest floor aromatics followed by bold black cherry and blackberry fruit flavors. It could be cellared for another 15 - 20 years, but was “epic” and “next level” now (according to 2 friends of mine).
