    May 27, 2017 - Black cherry, blackberry, menthol, and something funky, almost like cured meat, on the nose. Ripe and round on the palate, still medium plus acid and tannins, even though there was quite a bit of sediment. In future, I would decant this for 1 hour

    March 23, 2017 - Clearly the best showing of my recent notes. Graphite on the nose with cassis and strong ripe blackberry. Really terrific wine right from the start. Dominated by the bouquet but owe..... that long finish. Over 1 minute with a potpourri of flavors.

    December 31, 2016 - After three hour decant this wine is both structured and subtle at the same time. Rich, lush blackberry fruit with milk chocolate, cassis and mocha notes but at the same time super smooth and subtle with each sip. This is a classic Napa cult cab blend wine that is drinking VERY well.

    November 5, 2016 - A lot has changed in the 3 years since I last had this wine. Definitely prefer them younger. Still has a massive nose but the baby fat is starting to shed and what's left behind really needs some time to come together a little better. Kind of in between where it was and where it wants to be right now. Hold.

    September 17, 2016 - Pretty similar notes to my first tasting except the following:

    PNP which was upfront and sweet fruits with graphite on the nose. On the palette there is ashphalt like taste with a raspy dried throat aftertaste in the mouth. Long long finish of burned cherry pie and dried plum.

    This needs time to open. I have 1/2 of the bottle for tomorrow.
