I hate to be out of line here but this wine was really quite average. Even with several hours of decanting, just very little bouquet. Unremarkable on the palate also. Got rocked by a 2011 Bordeaux tonight. The last thing I would have expected from a Stillman wine. Maybe heading into a dumb phase??

Very disappointed.

Another over hyped wine from CH. Paid $28, probably worth $15.

Over-extracted, smells like Zinfandel. Flabby with little tannin. I bought way too much of this stuff...

This wine is fantastic. With a little air, earth morphs into aromatic perfection. Drinking is pure silk. Wow. Wish I had more.

Silky smooth; pure liquid sophistication in the glass. Best value in Napa Valley Cab right now.

Surprisingly good; really nice bouquet when allowed to breathe. For $20 one of the better values you'll find. I may be in for a case

A complex wine; well made with aromas of earth, black raspberries and cassis. Will improve with time. Enjoyable if not superb.

2/20/2013 - Zo65 Does not like this wine: 80 points

Nothing but oak; unimpressive fruit. Very thin with almost absent mouthfeel.

Although I only paid $10 at Costco, for the price, there are better options.

Excellent. With 2 hours of decanting produced aromas of cherries, some earth. Medium bodied. Don't really understand other poor reviews. Maybe bottle variation?
