11 YO QC. Aromatics are open and on point. Palate is giving and soft. Gorgeous after a decade.

Double decant (little sediment) and pour. Dark black/purple. On the nose black fruit, forest floor, carmel. Taste: BlackBerry, spice, sweet tannin, green veggie, vanilla. Medium finish. Note: 2nd day...used the re-pour capsule and kept this wine very fresh...TRY IT!

Powerful Cab with robust dark fruit and good structure. Still could use time in the bottle to soften the tannins or a longer decant.

2008 quilceda galitzine vineyard Cabernet
A fabulous wine. As a friend would say, a velvet devil. A complex and elegant wine.

This wine lived up to its reputation. Great fruit and structure, with a fantastic finish. I'm not a believer of wine hype, but this one delivers.

Extraction levels are good and trend slightly towards red fruit. However, it drinks very hot and the alcohol sticks out. Lack of balance ruins the experience, especially at the price point.
