    March 25, 2016 - A bit raw at this stage. Will age improve this wine?

    May 2, 2015 - Let's see what Day 2 brings. PNP through a venturi. Acid and tannins prominent. Perhaps a little old world but for a guy who drinks a lot of that and not much Californian, I don't get that vibe. Less fruit forward for sure and some oak, but manageable. Day2/3 - if nothing else, it needs more age and more decanting. Still unbalanced acids to my tastes, but better, less oak and a little more fruit, perhaps some attractive vanilla. QPR poor but that's not what they are going for.

    November 20, 2014 - Excellent blend. 70% cabernet sauvignon but the blend of other grapes completely takes the cab edge off the palate. Drinks more like a lighter bordeaux to me. Not a hint of acidity. Great on the nose. A little pricey but David Arthur's wines regularly score in the 90s so it's to be expected.

    October 7, 2014 - heavily oaked, uneven after significant aeration.
