    May 27, 2017 - Excellent nose, subdued nose, long finish.

    March 17, 2017 - One of the softer Napa Cabs I've had recently...very subtle actually, and mellow.
    Thoroughly enjoyable with bright fruit, a great grape essence and very elegant.
    1-2 hour decant or one pass through the Vinturi upon opening. In a great drinking window now but seems like it can easily last a few more years.

    February 28, 2017 - Decanted for 2h at 1862. Excellent tonight, massive tobacco and leather nose. Vibrant red fruit, mineral. Definitely a new world Bdx. Tonight this really delivered on its pedigree and price tag. For some reason, previous bottles from this vintage have been perplexingly less impressive; either that, or I am growing increasingly fond of its flavor profile. Outstanding with roast duck.

    January 16, 2017 - Very young, but considering the low acid, not sure how this will age. Good now, but better with food.

    Moderate black/red fruits, light green note, strong astringent tannins, light cedar/oak. Moderate body, low acid, very silky and smooth with the drying tannics.
