Big Saturday, feels good to wash away a 2016. Cherry and blueberry and raisin with long palette and a soft finish.

Decanted two hours. Full body, dry, balanced. Nicely structured with leather, tobacco, cassis, and blueberries. Outstanding!

A bit disappointing tonight. Kind of simple and one dimensional. Lack the breadth and depth I would normally expect.

Beautiful expression of a Dr. Crane Cabernet. Black currant, gravel, and black licorice. Lovely texture and a long finish.

This was a really excellent Dr. Crane Cabernet. Amazing density and excellent fruit expression. Lovely balanced and seamless. No hard edges anywhere to be found.

After about an hour of air, this was really singing. Should age well, but Alpha Omegas get consumed pretty quickly in my house.
