    September 8, 2017 - Well, probably not one to highlight negatives, since I've shared the 1969 offering with the owners, staff and winemaker at the winery. The 2009 version is a whole bunch better than what experts might rate. The wine my wife and I shared was very good, not exceptional. Beautifully balanced, smooth and great with desserts. Chocolate was made to be consumed with this offering. Don't expect to be blown away, just enjoy this mature cab and remember the price paid several years ago.

    August 22, 2017 - Very mild cork, but still spoiled the experience.

    February 12, 2017 - We didn’t take detailed tasting notes but recall the nose being dark fruit, mocha, and earth. On the palate the initial impression was one of mushrooms, unexpected for a cab, but over the next couple of hours the fruit came forward. Mild tannins and a medium finish. Good QPR if you can find it for less than $35.

    February 3, 2017 - Exceeded my expectation. Good QPR for Napa. Uses 5 Bordeaux varietals and aged in French oak for 26 months. Not too shabby.
    On the same evening we had this and a bottle of Lewis Cellars Hillstone Vineyard 2013 which cost much more and we couldn't justify the price difference at all.

    December 25, 2016 - Good wine for prime rib Christmas dinner. Did not take detailed notes, but remember it being just fine. Outshined by the 2011 Chateau Grange Cochard.
