    May 2, 2016 - Always love Smith Madrone and this is excellent. Full bodied wine. Glad to have more and let them age further.

    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.

    January 18, 2016 - Smooth showing nice fruit with some pepper notes. Once again when I taste this wine I think of old school Napa Cab. Very well balanced and not overdone or over the top extraction. Nice wine.

    December 24, 2015 - Consistent with previous notes a few months ago: concentrated, juicy, funky, herbal, and sharp. Paired wonderfully with filet and twice-baked potatoes on Christmas Eve.
