    May 21, 2014 - Despite Galloni's 94 rating on this wine I'd give it an 89. Great color, good fruit, balance, nice finish and a value for Napa juice at $24+. Nothing too flashy or out of kilter.

    May 27, 2013 - Decanted an hour, semi-transparent ruby color, bitter nose, medium mouthfeel, some tannins, too much oak and green notes on finish.

    May 3, 2013 - It is important to note that when I opened and decanted this wine it is very warm in Northern California, and I think this is a reason why the wine was softer and more approachable on Day 1. See my note from 1/26/13. Really well made. The wine had notes of tobacco that mixed well with herbs, spice and dark fruit.

    April 30, 2013 - Quite fresh and berry stained bouquet with a hint of oak and vanilla, some bell peppers, some cassis, a decent complexity on the nose here. Palate has alright balance. Fruit forward and ripe as expected with sweet dark berry flavours but a balanced structure. Falls short on body and finish, but a good everyday Cabernet.
