    March 9, 2014 - From a magnum. Very surprised by the quality, and especially the style of this wine. The nose is proto-typical Napa, showing the dry dusty austerity of Mediterranean olive groves. More quality Napa wines would smell like this if not so heavily masked by oak or made in so jammy a style. The amazingly structured palate shows great purity of Cabernet Sauvignon, accentuated by elegant Oakville terroir. Very long and thoroughly gripping. Superb oak treatment. Drinking beautifully, lively and vibrant. It likely has five to ten years of life ahead of it. Excellent!

    April 29, 2013 - This as certainly come together. Balanced and so good with a grilled tenderloin. Needs a little open time, but delivers red fruit, cedar, coffee, and hints of bell pepper.

    June 5, 2012 - Can't believe its been 4 yrs since I last had this? My last note still seems spot on.......shows some of the hot vintage with a little dried raisined berry....but there is still PLENTY of structured dusty dry tannin, and cherry skin acid to keep it alive. Big creamy, well integrated, French oak....cedar spice, graphite powder, bbq sauce, and some fresh green herbalness that give this a great complexity. The right amount of sweet ripe Cali fruit(black cherry liqueur, boysenberry, plum) to go along with the structure. Some heat on the finish.....but I get that now with most domestics......a very tasty Cab! Wish I had a bunch more....
