    February 16, 2017 - closed nose but next day showing the essential CS flavours and taste. good round body but not yet the complexity which may be developed with more age.
    enjoyable and needs to be cellared or decanted extensively.

    June 16, 2016 - Good solid Cab, nice fruit that is balanced ith a firm tannic backbone. A couple of more years will only add to this wine.

    May 7, 2016 - This is a very young with a big upside. The nose currently is a little dominated by oak, but with air this starts to fade and reveals lots of black currant, plum, blueberry, tobacco, ash, graphite, crushed stone, hints of herbs, and a bit of spice. The palate is lovely, with freshness and a delicious salinity, the tannins are well integrated, and the flavor concentration is excellent. This needs a few more years to integrate the oak for me, but once it does it will be stellar.
