    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.

    July 24, 2015 - Plum and a touch of cocoa, but really it's the green pepper and herbal notes from prior notes has now transitioned to tobacco. Still plenty of fruit, but it could be a touch brighter. Nice dusty tannins are fairly supple. Not overly precise, but it's reach a gentle period were it is full bodied, pure and elegant, if not terribly delineated beyond that with a moderate finish. Certainly this is drinking well now. Drink now or hold.

    December 28, 2014 - Consistent with prior note. Still has a ton of fruit, and is aging gracefully.
