Drinking on Super Bowl Sunday with Mike and Mary Margaret. So sad we lost! Wine is good but a little tight.

Don't understand all the negativity about this wine. I found it quite drinkable. Cassis and licorice with dark fruits, leather and chewy tannins. Very long finish.

Nice medium to full bodied cab. Purple color, plenty of dark fruit and tobacco and minor oak. Tanning and acidity is as mostly integrated, good but not quite perfect time to drink. Maybe one more year. Solid value.

What a fantastic wine! So glad we let this one age for a few extra years. Just the right balance of fruit and some subtle pepper. So smooth.

Red fruits. Plenty of tannin structure as well as a strong acidic steak with graphite. Refreshing.

This is probably one of my favorite vintages of this wine. As you can see by the cork, definitely filter this one. I also aerated it as well. Fantastic with steak. It's like buttah on the tongue with that nice green pepper kick at the end. Fabulous.

Wow. Lots of fruit still on this vintage. Very impressive. I would drink soon if you still have it.

Wow. Still a flavor bomb. Drink now but could still hold for a little bit, if needed.

So smooth! One of my very favorite cabs and well worth waiting a couple years to have again. Big and bold but doesn't love the smooth feel.

Would drink now if you have any left. Still a nice wine but seemed at its peak to me.
