    July 15, 2017 - Decanted for 3+ hours before tasting. Tasted at a friends home along with other wines that are a prelude to an upcoming trip to Napa and Sonoma where the wineries on the evening will be visited. Effusive floral and herbal nose with some vanilla and red/black fruit. Great balance and elegance in texture and flavor. Plenty of acidity give it a bright mouth feel that is great with a variety of food but especially good with smoked Boar/Pork Belly. Flavors evoked a fine Bordeaux with graphite, licorice, rosemary, black currant, plum, blackberry and tobacco. Long finish. My favorite red wine of the night.

    July 1, 2017 - PNP. Great arromatics. Still drinking great. Started to lose some freshness after an hour. Showed stewed fruit and black fruit notes. Drink up!

    June 4, 2017 - Extremely balanced and well made and structured. Full bodied. Medium to long finish. The fruit is not quite ripe though.

    June 12, 2016 - This is a fantastic cabernet which is probably at or near its peak. It is, imho, exactly what a great, aged Napa cab should be. Perfectly balanced. It's in that "smooth" phase which can only come from a good vintage which has been aged for many years. Can be paired with food or enjoyed on its own.

    Every bit as good as the wines from other well known, top notch Napa producers. Corison and her staff know what they are doing.
