    November 19, 2016 - Dark purple and a bit murky. Decanted and opened up well with lots of flavor if a bit clumsy. These "rock blocks" have been lots of fun, full of Cali fruit and cleanly made. This version is also well made if just a step behind the rest

    March 6, 2016 - Initially tried a glass (using a Coravin) several months ago without decanting, and drank during a quick meal which did it a disservice. Opened to finish last night with my wife after 45 minute decant; excellent nose, long legs, soft, nice texture with well integrated tannins, coffee, cinnamon and chocolate to the taste... very likely would have been even better if it had been a 2-hour decant.

    January 17, 2016 - Popped and poured. Pretty good, probably should have paid more attention when everyone else was drinking it.

    November 28, 2015 - Very Nice Cali Cab. Big sweet but not over ripe fruit balanced with some great dry tannins that gave it a great structure. Oak not overly present and low acidity tends to make me think to drink it over the next 5 years. Excellent bottle.

    August 7, 2015 - Bold dark fruit, oak and minerals. Tannins could still use a little time to soften, but still drinking well now.
