    May 8, 2020 - Slow oxed for an hour. Over the top perfume on this of black and red fruit with a bit of lead pencil. Despite the 15.5 percent ABV this is remarkably light on its feet for a cab with very silky tannin. The fruit is a little overly sweet for my tastes with flavors of ripe red fruits predominating combined with a little tobacco and lead pencil in the mid palate. Long finish. This drinks well today. Not exactly sure how this is going to age going forward but I am going to save my last bottle to figure that out.

    March 11, 2020 - Similar notes to last time, if a little richer on the open and a little muted at the last glass. Loads of bright fruit with a tangy sage and herb finish. Amazing wine. 94-95

    February 22, 2020 - Decanted for an hour. Initially tightly coiled then revealed bright red fruit, morelo cherries, chocolate, coffee, and sone secondary leather notes with a long finish ranging 20 to 40 seconds. After another hour burnt caramel notes emerged and the finish transitiined to sage and cashew. After another hour the wine faded a bit to cinnamon. Beautifully smooth and complex wine that needs to be drunk sooner than later. 95 area

    September 13, 2019 - This was one of the best wines I’ve ever tasted. I opened it 3 hours before drinking but did not decant. It was ready to go and the first glass was as good as the last. A big wine at 15.5% ABV but extremely well balanced so no heat at all. Shared with a group and we all loved it.

    February 16, 2019 - Decanted one hour. The wines nose is exuberant cherries, raspberries. The palate is super silky and refined with tremendous purity. Although the wine is quite high in alcohol it’s not noticeable and there isn’t any jamminess or heaviness. The palate sports flavors of cassis, raspberries, tobacco weed, and oak. The finish is very long. This is really delicious now but can continue to age for a lot longer.
