  • - Garnet color - Still a solid wine. Fruit has faded, past its prime but still very nice after decanting. And yes, the cork is a bit challenging to get out intact at this point.

  • Cork was in great shape compared to previous bottle. Medium garnet color. Nose showed a mix of earthy, slightly herbal notes, a bit of sweet pipe tobacco, dried cherry, a little plum. Very nice. Similar flavors on the palate with lovely mature aged cabernet flavors of tobacco and spice and aged cedar cigar box, but still some nice dried fruit underneath. Medium acid. Tannins fully resolved and not present. I think this is probably slightly at or past peak based on structure but a very nice mature cab right now.

  • Cork crumbled on way out. Decanted for sediment. Medium to dark garnet color with some fine sediment. Nose of black cherry, black currant, wet leaf, tobacco and a hint of pyrazine and oak. Similar flavors on the palate with more earth than fruit but still showing well. Medium+ acid, fully integrated tannins. Moderate finish. I think this wine is likely on the decline in the near future so I will be drinking my remaining bottle within the next year or so.

  • Very smooth at this stage. Earthiness, leather and tobacco, in front. Soft red fruit comes in on the back end. Finish drops off quicker. Drink now or over the next few years.
