    April 13, 2015 - Tart cherry up front and smooth but tart tannin finish

    March 9, 2015 - The cork was sunken and somewhat compromised. Gunk collected inside the foil. I was nervous. But Chad was fine. Consistent with my 2014 tasting notes. Lovely and delightful in aromas and palate. I will enjoy the rest of this lot soon, while at its peak.

    January 26, 2015 - I agree this bottle is in a beautiful spot - by far the best of the 6 we had. Tastes like it was twice the cost - beautiful red fruits, smooth silky tanins, relatively long finish.

    November 15, 2014 - Wow. A year after my previous bottle, this 2010 Carneros has rocketed up 5 points in my estimation. Light bodied, bright ruby, bountiful nose filled with flowers and fruits. The palate is now luscious, balancing appealing acidity with satisfying smoothness; blueberries, dark cherries, and cranberries mellow into a suave finish. As always, Chad is rad.

    June 7, 2014 - Nice balance and smooth taste. A bit of acidity on the front and sour cherries and very light raspberries. Nice soft tannic finish.
