    October 23, 2016 - Pop and pour did not do this last btl any justice. Dark color, muted nose, good taste with tanin. Time in a decanter would have helped. This is to drink now.

    October 22, 2016 - Possibly the best bottle yet. The first glass was excellent, and subsequent pours were even better!

    September 20, 2016 - This bottle could go until 2025. Decanted for an hour and improved with time in the glass. Deep dark cherry and blackberry fruit, pepper, graphite, faint char and a little cedar that comes with age. Good balance and length. Softened enough to be versatile with food too. It's good to know these age so well. I recently had a 2000 (a notoriously poor vintage in Napa) and while far more mature than this 2001 it was holding up surprisingly well.

    July 10, 2016 - Should have decanted this. With air it opened up and was wonderful. Big but balanced.
