    June 1, 2016 - PnP from split. This is at a perfect stage. Great upfront fruit, balanced and integrated tannins. A real treat.

    May 22, 2016 - I love this wine and this was last bottle ( man I wish I had more).1 hour decant, great nose and delicious palate ( dark fruit, green olive, saddle leather and pronounce forest floor) and a little dirt which made it all the better (scotch drinker:)) I paid $60 for these and will continue buying 2005 vintage at this price as they come available. This wine can last a cpl more years in my mind, no prob.

    July 22, 2015 - Eucalyptus au premier nez. Cassis par la suite. Il a encore besoin de temps pour se fondre. Tout de même accessible présentement.

    (Paul Hobbs Napa Cabernet Sauvignon) #6; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-dark; NOSE-over-oaked; enormous vanilla; cedar box; a little tobacco which is nice, but a solid foundation of wood; TASTE-clearly an over-oaked Cabernet from California; not my style; cranberry; some New England wood; this kind of wine just bores me; RP-92; GV-87
