    October 10, 2020 - Bought at auction for $120. Clearly perfectly stored. Vibrant in color with bricking. Flavor remains spritely with long balanced finished. Nose is typical assortment of stone fruits, jams, and leather with hints of fall. Very, very enjoyable.

    May 5, 2019 - Highly acidic. Not bricked. This bottle may not have survived time.

    February 13, 2018 - still strong, smooth and held up well to a big, thick bome-in filet. This was classic Silver Oak!

    December 17, 2017 - Intimate Dinner Series: Cabernet Sauvignon (G&R's): Single blind. Showing some age with a good bit of bricking at the meniscus, this is obviously an older wine. Has a slight bouillon note at first, but there's also red currant and herbal qualities as well. Slightly thin on the palate at first, this fleshed out slightly with a little more air. Flavors of red berry fruit, cherry and leather. Medium+ finish.

    Doc had left this in our care a few months ago after a dinner, the only request being that it be opened in his presence, so this seemed like the prime opportunity to open it. Double decanted just moments before we left for dinner, about two hours before the flight was poured.

    Flight rankings:
    My #4, Domino's #5
    Group #5, 31 pts
