    July 4, 2014 - Solid, firm version of Malbec - not like many of the big South American styles. Currant, plum, and firm herb flavors.

    June 25, 2014 - Quite good. Aged nicely to smooth out.

    May 4, 2014 - Not a fave. from Chappellet, but still extremely good and better than a lot of other Napa attempts.

    March 15, 2014 - W osso bucco on first nite after 5 weeks away. Great dark cherry color, nose was balanced between good fruit and spice. It smelled young. On palate great fruit, spice and tannins. Very drinkable now but will get some more balance. Nice wine, good combination.

    February 20, 2014 - I remembered this having a predominant green streak which still makes this pretty rough. Really improved on day 2. Tannin softened a bit. I would give this another year. Would have given 85 on day 1.
