    November 24, 2015 - Decanted for 45 minutes and rebottled for dinner out. Cork disintegrated but did not seem to affect the wine. Deep purple, lilac and strawberry nose. Balanced attack designed to make RP swoon. Would like more earthiness but hard to find fault with it for what it is. Still drank well throughout two-hour steak dinner.

    July 26, 2014 - Incredible short ribs with 2000-2005 vertical of special selection. We decanted all but for short times, just enough to get them all poured and then get them side by side in our glasses. The 2000 had good fruit nose and at about 20 minutes had wonderful rich dark fruit notes. But it did fade rather quickly-it was still good but not as flavorful

    July 4, 2014 - Mint, violets and fruit on the nose, sweet entry and deceptively soft acidity at the start. Finished well, though.

    November 14, 2013 - Mature and complex aroma of blackberries, earth, cocoa, massive black fruits and a hint of raisins. Balanced on the palate, sweetish but not nearly as sweet as many other Napa reds. Curiously more structure than the 2010 Cabernet from Caymus, this could definetely age a bit more but it's drinking great already. Cheers

    August 9, 2013 - Very nice, but not as good as expected, especially for price.
