    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.

    September 6, 2014 - Garnet. Spice, cherries and cedar on the nose. Small glass from wine store tasting machine . Good balance, red cherries, mineral, hint of tobacco with a nice balance overall. The Sangiovase predominates in the tasting profile. Would do well with grilled meat or pasta.

    September 17, 2013 - Winorama with a surprise (engagement)!; 9/15/2013-9/18/2013 (Napa Valley California): 2011 was such a tough year and apparently hit the Sangiovese quite a bit so this blend was a bit different than the past with quite a few blending grapes and a strong cab influence. It's more of a herbaceous wine, a touch green - but not in a bad way, can taste a bit of peppers. Comes across as a bit more old world to me and a bit less fruit forward, but still a nice wine that felt like it needed some lighter meat (maybe chicken or pork).
