    December 11, 2014 - Aroma of raspberry, rose pelal, cigar box and forest floor. there is a lot going on here. The tannins are still quite present. Still good balance of tannins and acid. Blackberry on the palate and brandy notes in the end. Full bodied with a very long finish. Could use a little more time in the bottle. Wonderful wine.

    October 22, 2014 - aromas of currant and black olive, still comes across a little tight. Black fruit and herb when tasted. Drying tannins on the finish, but it does not prevent the lingering fruit tones.

    October 22, 2014 - Well integrated, sweet preserved fruits with a wonderfully smoothness. Decanted for 1.5 hours. Brilliant as usual for under 50 clams.

    August 11, 2014 - Consistently one of my favorite Napa cabs under $50; A dense and concentrated palate of plums, currants and cherries with a silky texture; The oak treatment is noticeable, adding some toasty sweetness to the wine, but is well integrated; The tannins are definitely present and suggest this wine will improve with additional age; Hold or drink now with a lengthy decant
