    August 14, 2015 - Got this bottle from a guy who worked for me a few years ago when he went to Napa. Held it for a few years in the cellar and pop and poured to a dinner crowd that was wowed by this wine. A really nice blend with smooth, silky tannins and well integrated oaky vanilla notes. Great bottle and I followed it with a 2010 Napa Cab from Madrigal that was a real letdown.

    July 23, 2014 - Solid wine but not as good as it used to be with Mitch Cosentino out of the picture. Not a good QPR. Can find much better blends at the same or lower price point. Drink now.

    June 14, 2014 - Very light bodied as many Cosentinos are. Opened up nicely after an hour or so and the bright red fruit really came forward. Very enjoyable.

    May 5, 2014 - The nice. Cave's note below is spot on - And I would drink sooner than later, as I think this is ready and won't get much better. 91

    October 5, 2013 - Napa Valley Wine and Food Excursion; 9/30/2013-10/5/2013 (Napa Valley): Deftly crafted, this is a sleek Bordeaux-style blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep ruby in color, it is already showing a degree of aromatic complexity. Plum, sage, saddle leather, tobacco and coriander characterize the nose. Medium-to full-bodied on the palate, it delivers black fruit and mineral-dominated flavors in a round, moderately tannic frame. The alcohol (14.2%) lurks quietly and the middle palate is solid. Long and smooth on the finish, this is a wine with broad appeal. Drink now-2020.
