August 21, 2016 - Wonderful bottle of wine. Ready to drink now. Complex and balanced. A terrific wine for the money. Wish I had more.

August 6, 2016 - Nine years young and not one bit over the hill. A very nice mix of pepper, cassis and blackberry. Full bodied but balanced. Great representation of Spring Mountain Cab. The only thing keeping this from even rarer scores is a relative lack of finish.

May 2, 2016 - Always love Smith Madrone and this is excellent. Full bodied wine. Glad to have more and let them age further.1 person found this helpful Comment
April 10, 2016 - Wow, this has improved with some rest and looks like it will get even better. Classic cab flavors, judicious oak, fine but prominent tannins that suggest a long life. No flab on this one, and enough clean acid that I think it will go another ten years. Should have bought more. Next time I see a good price on the current releases, I am all over them. At least half a case is in order next time.

March 19, 2016 - Cassis, black pepper. Everyone loved this wine. Tannins are pretty firm on the finish-- this will last quite a while, but is great now.
