California Tasting (Barrel Tasting and an slight older): Barrel sample. More fruit on the nose than the 2012. Also drier than the 2012. Tannins 8/10.

Splash decanted and drank over 2 hours. Opened up nicely, would benefit from a longer decant. Had this with balsamic glazed chicken...better pairing for beef...

Rich purple color, Nose is dark fruits, cherry, earth, mushrooms, eucalyptus, toasted oak. Nose jumped out during the decant, this is a rich wine right in its drinking zone. Palate of black cherry, blueberry, floral, graphite.

A big wine, "Bordeaux-like", would be reminiscent of a later Leoville Barton or Poyferre, but not mistaking the Calif fruit. Aaron Pott doesnt disappoint in my experience. This is right in its drinking zone, should hold at this level for 5+ years.

The nose is the best part. Blackberry, cassis, some smoke and spices. Needs food due to tannins and acidity. 1.5 hour decant. Well balanced. Just enough oak to soften the tannins. Nice finish.

Smells more like oak than the arise, which makes sense given the oak treatment. Very tasty indeed.

Drank this over three nights. I have had many bottles of this, and this one came off as a hot alcoholic mess on the palate. Maybe a VA issue with this bottle. None of the balance that this usually has.

Hopefully an anomaly. Couple left that I will keep cellared until after their 10th birthday.

- Brick color - Simply stellar. A mouthful of flavor. 3+ hours of decanting and was still opening?

At the moment in a very backward phase. Leather, tobacco and currant in the nose. Quite tannic and dry. I think the wine is on the short side and lacking complexity.

41/36/23 Cab Franc/Merlot/Cab Sauv. 75% new French oak. Lush up front, with some pepper, with elegant dark fruit, a subtle power that sneaks up on you. This is both a wow now and age worthy wine. Hints of complexity coming in the future with more time.

Cab franc leads the charge here with iron, cement dust, and bell pepper. Roasted meat pokes through. palate is ripe, firm and dusty. Finish is moderate. Still not really all that exciting.

Tasted at Vintages Napa Valley Rocks seminar. Medium raspberry colour. Nose of ripe red and black berries, cigar box and licorice. Fresh taste of young, sweet raspberry, cherry. Licorice comes through on the finish. Not very well integrated at this point: low acidity, high level of chalky tannins were a distraction.

Tasted at Vintages Napa Valley Rocks seminar. Medium ruby colour, good legs. Nose of cassis, blackberries and cedar. Smooth, full mouth feel with blackberries, black currants, vanilla. Round, velvety tannins with a medium length finish. Not a whole lot of secondary characteristics were evident.

Jammy black and red fruits, earth and dark chocolate aromas create the perfume. On the palate, the wine is led by blackberries and cocoa, with a polished feel to the texture. Already forward and approachable.

Cab Franc dominated here. Licorice with eucalyptol. Oak & sandalwood on the nose. Decanted. Strong tannins and very oaky. Oak monster spitting out splinters here. Velvety smooth. Anise on the back end. Nice finish. Not overly complex but rounded and polished. Needs a bit more weight to it to pull it together.

Coffee, cassis and ripe blackberry roll across the palate and open to a fresh, ripe, round, forward styled wine. Just as I tasted it at the Library in Napa. As good day 3.

Nose: Black Cherry, Blackberry, Blueberry and Graphite. Mushroom, Pencil shavings and sweet toasted oak. Palate: Medium weight, Blueberry, Black Cherry and some nice anise notes that are not obtuse. Floral and earth notes with graphite fold in as well. Finish: Lingering and slightly tannic. Still needs a bit of time to fully open.
