    June 24, 2016 - Really good. It starts off New World, as what one taster described as a "monster truck Cab", but after the up-front fruit the nuances come through to the point that one taster said this could be confused for a big Bordeaux. Nice herbal and mineral nuances in addition to big (but not overripe) fruit with a good finish and plenty of structure still. Highly recommended. I've heard some Mondavi Reserves can disappoint, but this one didn't.

    June 11, 2016 - Had at dinner blind and I loved it. It did not seem 15 years. Lots of cherry fruit. Big dark Went better with food then alone. We had a wonderful grilled steak. Great match.

    May 26, 2016 - Randy and Steve visit Cleveland (Napa vs. Bordeaux) (Colonial): Blind, most picked this as Bordeaux although I thought Napa. Just too much sunshine, but I get why. Just a beautiful mature wine at this point. Still a long life ahead, but seems about at peak. The nose has cassis and some cedar with a bit of menthol and tobacco as well. On the palate, layers of complexity. Nice acidity. Cassis, forest floor and some funk. Light tannins although mostly resolved. Good finish.

    April 21, 2016 - This is perhaps the 20th bottle of this that I have had and its still pretty good. Soft, musty, old world, still some red fruits. Not the best bottle of this i have had.
