    November 8, 2019 - Napa Cult CabSav 1994 dinner (Singapore): Expressive nose of ripe fruit, oak, vanilla, cherry. Full bodied on the palate and a touch dry on the finish. Among the riper wines of the night. Did not possess the complexity of the best wines.

    February 3, 2019 - Fully mature, with olive, earth, spice, smoke and thyme accents that ride easily on top of the red fruits, there is a softness and elegance that easy to feel in the finish. There is no reason to hold this any longer.

    December 7, 2018 - Decanted for a good 2 hours. Having tried this wine 4 years ago ( Papies 96) what we had was not the result of a healthy bottle we feel .
    Tasted bling, dark, rich , porty and had the feeling of being cooked. We this the bottle was badly time has not been kind to this wine from a hot year. That is once the freshness and vibrancy subsided the resulting overripe fruit just could not hold on its own.

    July 27, 2018 - Plummy, floral aromas that jump out of glass. Clean fruit, intense, medium body. Gorgeous wine.

    June 20, 2018 - A solid, but not profound showing. Fill well into the neck and pristine cork. Color is fairly dark with some clearing at the rim. Nose is initially mulberry with a mint and olive aspect. Later some oak seems to come out. Medium to full body with classic cab flavors that echo the nose. The texture is fairly new world to me. A bit hollow in the middle and perhaps a bit short, showing no remaining tannin. I suspect this was better a little while back.
