February 8, 2016 - Bottle decant 3 hours. In the decanter for about an hour before drinking over the next couple of hours. This is a rich, deep, velvety smooth merlot. Blue and black fruits, baking spices, and pipe tobacco

January 22, 2016 - Took a while to open up. First taste was not good...closed and dry with lots of graphite tastes and lots of complexity underneath. I let sit for several hours and it opened up nicely. It balanced out nicely with fruit and jaminess up front, nice mid palate and great tannins at finish.

December 27, 2015 - This is a huge merlot- wonderful fruit, robust tannins, excellent extended finish. The last of three bottles (sadly) did not disappoint. One of the most memorable Napa merlots that I have had.
