    November 2, 2014 - Double decanted for three hours and tasted blind initially. Moderate nose, black fruit, a touch of earth, medium body, medium acidity, saturated dark fruit on the attack, finishes a bit weak though. This fell a bit short for me.

    June 7, 2014 - One and one half Shafers? I think we get the best of both of them, name said. Currently out drinking the Hillside, altho I don't expect ( and hope since we have the hillside ) that to be the end result, this is a very well made, and distinctive, napa cab with a ways to go.

    April 17, 2014 - WCC 2004 California Cab Blind Tasting (Fort Orange Club, Albany, NY): Very ripe fruit nose with notes of beef and licorice. Sweet, juicy, young, but balanced and harmonious. Definitely one of the best wines to drink tonight.
