October 1, 2016 - This was just straight-up awesome. In a great place right now and for the price point it's an unbelievable deal. Wine was well integrated, more old world Napa style. Very approachable. Suspect it can go for many more years, but nice to see it aging so incredibly well.

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.
