    January 17, 2021 - Not the fruit bomb it may have been in its youth, age has brought out some interesting elements of balsamic and rhubarb. The ABV is 15.1 and you can taste it and feel it. Fortunately the fruit is sufficiently concentrated to cover it fairly well. Bold and ripe. Very good in the Cult style.

    July 1, 2020 - Decanted one hour. Acid-forward wine with fine tannins, soy sauce, black tea, dried herbs, light cranberry and licorice, slight mint. Just a gorgeous, unusual Rutherford Cab that pairs beautifully with Asian food. Possibly a design point of the Korean owners? Unusual, beautiful, and hedonistic. Drinking well now.

    May 19, 2020 - Dark purple in color, nose is fruit and earth. Dense mouthfeel with volume, not velvety (like a right bank Bordeaux) but almost suggesting tomato juice. Burst of black fruits, cherry, elements of crushed rock, tobacco, toffee, milk chocolate, something slightly tangy mid-tongue. Nice balance and concentration. Very high quality wine, but not contending for the Final Four bracket for me, maybe round of 16.

    November 12, 2018 - A bright-toned bottle with more of a medium body and nice lift. Great mouthfeel.
