    February 14, 2016 - On 5/15/2012 I hoped and predicted this wine would mellow with age. Almost six years later, it has not. Dark ruby with light purple tones and impression of some cloudiness in the glass. Full nose of black cherry, blackberry, and red licorice. Powerful but balanced fruit, acidity and tannins. I used to like these "big" New World wines lacking subtlety in any component, but not so much anymore. But for those seeking this classic Napa style, here is a great one.

    December 28, 2013 - Nice, easy drinking and didn't need a long decant. OK value at $30. I would compare it too the Columbia Crest Reserves.

    October 22, 2013 - classic plum and leather nose...flavors of blackberry, plum, licorice. Good acidity and easy to drink right out of the bottle.

    September 23, 2013 - Enjoyable, solid value, nice wine, but nothing to make you remember it or feel the desire to buy more.
