Still doing great after 11 years. This could easily go another 2-3 years I think. Dark purple with faint hints of oxidation starting to show up. Plum, cherry, cola, tobacco, notes of coco, cassis, and blackberry on the palate. A hint of vegetal greenness on the nose, but otherwise plum and floral notes on the nose followed by tobacco and pepper.

Holy cow!!! 2009 knocks it out of the park! Big, plummy, strong notes of leather and coco, chewy tannins give way to pepper and tobacco on the finish. Yum!

2009 vintage. I’ve been saving this one for a while and it’s aged well! Great nose. Very smooth, flavors of black cherry, leather and chocolate.

Still holding up beautifully. Dark, luscious nose. Almost notes of leather or tobacco. Smoothing out as we drink one or two bottles of this vintage over the years but still lovely. Lots of fruit still on this one. Jammy with a nice little kick at the end. Love it.

Wow has this aged beautifully. Had it for dinner at a restaurant and wow, even the server loved it. Dark fruit with lots of smoke/leather undertones. Nice and smooth.

Wow did this smooth out. What a fantastic Cab. Almost a coffee nose on it. Very interesting.

Still one of my favorite wines. Lots of dark fruit on this one with a hint of vanilla on the finish. Left this one open for a bit before we drank it. Have several bottles left, I think this will continue to get better with age.

Fantastic vintage. Let it sit out for a bit. We used the Vinturri (sp?) and it made a difference. Either decant or table this for a bit. Smooth with your pepper finish. Very yummy.
