Decanted for two hours, this wine is in a great place right now, cassis, dark fruit, smooth finish. Smooth . Fruit is present and primary but not a fruit bomb by any stretch , oak in balance.

Pretty tasty but somewhat hot with alcohol (15.5 Yikes, and it is pretty noticeable). A big wine that exhibits dark purple fruit, berry, cassis, black licorices, cedar and oak with good depth, with a nice texture and good lavish character. I would score it higher if it weren't so hot. 90.8 Points in my book and showing very well for an 2004. Decant and I think you are looking at 91-92 points as it will smooth out.

Bold fruit and acidity. Tight, but opened up over an couple hour decant. Balanced tannins and acidity, with ripe blueberry and blackberry. A really nice wine once it opened up. A little pricy, at $80, but I'd pick up another 2010 and cellar it. There's enough acidity and alcohol content to have this be much better sometime after 2020.

Still high alcohol. Smooth tannins and cherry on the mid palate. Lost some complexity. Short finish

Best of 2012 Pina. Needs a little more time to integrate. Big, bold quasi-dark fruit. Definitely a Pina signature to it. You don't just drink this, you eat it-Not in a bad way, chewy tanins a fair dosage of heat. Perfectly balanced.

beautiful, bold, full-throttle Piña. How did they do it for a lousy year? By far the best 2011 Napa cab I've had. Ready to drink now.

Needed an hour to open up. This has been a great QPR after a bargain pick up. Tannins really settled out. Will drink my last bottle in the next year or two

Disappointing upon POP and 1 hr decant. Little fruit, tannic, and short finish. Back in the bottle after 6 hrs, revisited the next day, and it was beautiful. Great fruit, long finish, and ripe tannins.
Note for the future is that it needs a 8-10 hr decant or 5-7 years bottle age.
Should have known better and decanted first thing in the morning for new years eve dinner but am looking forward to my remaining 2 bottles.

Cherry jolly rancher and pink cotton candy on the nose. Unpleasantly hot on initial taste. Exploded a few minutes later w burnt fowl fat, dark rich fruit and a chewiness exemplary of good acid/fruit/tannins integration. Explosive finish. For 40+ bucks and half the price of the vineyard Pina's, it's an experience worth repeating. Kind of like the jonata for those fancy wine makers in buellton.......

Not much on the nose to entice. Black fruit on the mid-palate. Tannins were soft and finish was short. It was Ok. Definitely overpriced for what you get as far as I am concerned. Will not buy again.

Nice Howell mountain. Elegant and bold but less bold than prior years. Really well made. Best 2011 Napa cab I've tested. Really enjoyed and drinking very well now.

Classic fruit nose with a hint of tobacco and oak. Nice medium bodied. Dark red with a hint of ruby. Tannins 6.5. Light acid with mineral finish which may soften with decanting. Could move to a 92.

Nice but more on the exotic fruit side and less on the power/structure side. It was moderately priced ($40) but I would have liked more balance for that money.

Tasted at Total Wine in Towson, MD on 9/11/2014. Drinks very nice after decanting. More trust and ripe tannins. Lovely drinking wine. Lots of sediment. Big full bodied wine at 14.8% alcohol. Definitely has cellaring potential. No doubt was the best wine tasted.
