    May 1, 2016 - Note: I use a rating scale for which 85 represents a very good wine.

    A bit from memory (my apologies), let it breathe for a while (45 min) and then decanted -- this helped. Interesting taste, almost pruney, and dare I say, reminiscent of a Bordeaux. Drink 'em f you got 'em.

    December 22, 2015 - Unimpressed after all these years.

    August 16, 2015 - Excellent despite advanced age. Nicely balanced.

  • Purslane Likes this wine: (90 points)

    August 3, 2015 - Dominated by firm dry tannins, with an undercurrent of blackberry and black cherry. Surprisingly out of character for a 2002 Napa, which generally was open and deliciously fruity. Not ready to drink yet if stored in a cooler. Paired superbly with stewed lamb. But after 5 days of being opened, a delicious fruit finally emerged from its tannic cacoon.

    February 28, 2015 - Continues to improve. Very full bodied, menthol nose, easy tannins.
