    November 3, 2013 - Elegant and European ain't wait this Cab is about. It's burly, with wild rustic tannin, and tons of ripe, chocolately fruit. It was very tight and needed ridiculous amounts of air before it starting throwing punches like Mike Tyson.

    October 24, 2013 - Drank this amazing Magnum with 7 friends at Kinloch Country Club. Had with surf (shrimp) and Turf (filet). Spectacular wine. At the peak of perfection.

    February 21, 2013 - California Cabernets (Vin Vino Wine, Palo Alto, CA): deep red in color. spice, soil, tobacco, dark fruit, on the nose. smoke, wet forest floor, blackberry, oak, on the palate. high acid and big tannins on this lingering finish.

    May 29, 2012 - Still a little young. The nose was not overly impressive at first but opened up nicely over time. Just as a good Napa cab should be after 2h+ in the devanter.
