    August 30, 2014 - Deep garnet color turning violet/crimson at the rim. The nose is perfumed evoking dark purple fruits, herbs, spices and vanilla. The palate is full-bodied with a velvety texture. Flavors of blackberry, dark cherry, licorice, smoked oak. This is just delicious, supple, and delectable. Big on fruit and alcohol, but not over the top. Acidity is vibrant. Finishes with hints of meat, rosemary and sage. Another brilliant showing from Cakebread. Drink now until 2024.

    June 18, 2014 - Drinking really well now
    Soft tannins
    Great fruit
    Can likely go longer but I'd say less than another 4-5 years

    June 5, 2014 - Some cedar and dark fruit on the nose. Tastes of cedar, dark plums, and oak. Lingering fish with grainy tannins, overall a soft Cabernet. Very good.

    May 28, 2014 - As previous tasters have noted, this is a big, rich, oaky wine. Well made but no "wow" factor, in fact I think it's ultimately not complex or very interesting. Consumed from magnum, perhaps too young?

    January 12, 2014 - Big, and rich with smokey black fruits, but not much complexity. Very little change from the prior bottle nine months ago. Okay, but there are much better choices from Napa with higher QPR's.
