    March 15, 2016 - Tasted at Delectus St. Helena location. Wine really coming into its own! Lots of fruit and a long finish. Extremely enjoyable!

    August 14, 2015 - Big, dense wine. Still has life in it. Best after an hour or so.

    December 22, 2014 - Still plenty of tannins left. Fruit fading in this otherwise expected Napa Cab profile. Can go several more years, especially if you like your Bordeaux's aged. Pnp'd this one. Recommend a least 1 hour decant time.

    June 20, 2013 - Seems tannic & the fruit's died off in the beginning. Then it shows bell pepper/jalapeño, not a lot of aromatics. With air, it's slowly regaining balance, with a dried fruit flavor. After 3 or 4 hrs, it's come together and tasting good, but never showed enough fruit. I'd drink up on the 05's

    August 21, 2009 - Decanted for 2 hours. Muted nose, but taste had blackberry, coffee with mild tannins. Wine got better the longer it was open. Medium finish at first, but was 30-40 seconds by the last sip.
