    August 31, 2014 - Great fruit, but still some solid Bordeaux notes. Would suggest at least 3-hrs of breathing before drinking.

    February 8, 2014 - Stellar bottle. Silky tannins perfectly balanced the acid. Eucalyptus and red fruits on the palate with a super long finish.

  • La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: (95 points)

    December 20, 2013 - This blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Cabernet Franc was tasted in double-blind fashion, with the bottle kindly provided by D.H. Showing a youthful-appearing opaque ruby color, it offers explosive dark plum, cassis, anise, fig and dried earth aromas. Full-bodied, round and dense on the palate, it has ripe black fruit and mineral flavors which are supported by substantial fine-grained tannins and seamless alcohol (listed as 14%). Solid in the middle and impressively long on the finish, this is nothing other than pure hedonism! Drink now-2026.

    August 3, 2013 - Fantastic Napa blend with some advanced characteristics yet still dominated by youthful fruit. A joy, wish I had more.

    July 1, 2013 - Wonderful. Inky dark purple color, violets on the nose. Nice blackberry fruit, underscored by deep cassis. A lingering finish, medium tannins. A few good,years lie ahead of it. Impressive effort.
