    June 17, 2016 - Decanted for one hour which was optimum. Plenty of dark fruit, well balanced, full bodied, and soft tannins.

    August 18, 2014 - Initial notes of vanilla and white chocolate, with flavors on the tongue to match. After an hour, the palate morphed into mocha and astringent blackberry. Firm tannins, light "Napa" graphite, bright acidity. Requires big entrees as a complement.

    September 18, 2013 - Winorama with a surprise (engagement)!; 9/15/2013-9/18/2013 (Napa Valley California): Deep, dark, very smooth, and delicious. There's some blackberry and maybe black cherry (develops over time). Would hold onto these as it's not quite ready to drink, but with a decant the flavors were coming out. Vineyard sounds amazing - the plantings were done via dynamite given the volcanic rock. Great wine!
