    June 27, 2016 - Hard to find a flaw with this bottle. Beautiful plum and black fruit with earthy undertones, well knitted into seamless long finish. Great structure.

    June 2, 2016 - Decanted one hour, full CA cab. Still room to grow in cellar

    May 5, 2016 - Such a great nose on opening! Blackberry, plum, black cherry, and baking spice. Picked up tobacco and a hint of cocoa powder within a few minutes in the decanter. Sensational dusty texture & body with flavors in complete agreement with the nose. In a great spot right now where the tannins are very fine and accent the body and finish, with nice acidity that helps the finish last over a minute as it slowly fades. Not shy at all, but certainly not over the top. The only thing keeping me from scoring this higher is the slight presence of alcohol on the nose, which was a bit more noticeable on the finish.

    If my wife wore this as perfume, we'd never leave the bedroom.

    April 22, 2016 - Big well built wine as most from Shafer, classic Napa, good now, should go a decade

    February 25, 2016 - Tight on opening. Ran it thru a Venturi a couple of times and it made a world of difference. Continued to soften and improve. Lots of backbone and long life left.
