    November 17, 2014 - Very good. Favorite at our Napa tasting event. Rich, ripe fruit, sweet tannins, modest structure

    October 25, 2014 - Good quality Napa Cab. Big darker fruit, quite rich, especially the first hour after opening. Lacking complexity, but elegant and easy drinking.

    July 20, 2014 - Too young to rate. Tasted it against a a similarly aged Greer and it was riper and less structured. Needs to air out considerably. I hold high hopes for this still.

    April 22, 2014 - An incredibly smooth regally-fruited Cab. Definitely on the ripe side but there's nothing out of place here. From an elevated vineyard NE of Napa, this is up there with ACV as one of the best Cabs for under $100 I've had.

    February 16, 2014 - This is a baby and just starting to come around. Private tasting of Altamura wines, P&P. Rich, dark ruby, firm tannins that are both silky and chalky, refreshing acid backbone. Mostly cassis and some light chocolate and licorice on the nose. This is classically done cab and compares to young pauillac. Seeing how the 2006 has blossomed, I would give this wine some time before opening. Good QPR and long term upside. Drink 2017-2025.
