    August 29, 2017 - ATL Wine Group 1st Tasting; 8/27/2017-8/29/2017 (Beebe House): Tasted blind (mix was Rioja, California Cab or Bordeaux)

    Medium purple color (looked younger than an '08). Cherry, dark cherry, saline on nose. On palate, cherry, orange peel, and cassis. Medium body, very good structure - this is built to age - medium acidity & nice tannic grip. Guessed Napa Cab ('09/'10). Almost went with '09 Left Bank Bordeaux from a modern producer. This tied for WOTN with an '06 Muga Rioja Gran Reserva. 92+ [this held up well 48 hours later when re-tasted].

    March 16, 2017 - I hope that this improves on day 3. Day #3! For the first 2 days, the wine had a burnt tasting with not much fruit. It was perfectly drinkable, but hasn't age that well. Hopefully, more to come.

    December 31, 2016 - Damn, this is good! Big, bold black fruits up front with a great structure of tar and earth throughout. Firm tannins, long finish, great wine!

    April 24, 2016 - 94+ at Gary and Judy's: Decanted 4 hours. Drank a good-sized glass over an hour. This cab is even bigger than I remember it. Amped up, tons of fruit, lots of alcohol and wood. A bruiser.
