    November 29, 2014 - Great bottle of mature Napa cab. I could drink this all day and never tire of it.

    February 22, 2014 - Needs time - still very tightly wound, tannins dominated the first night, despite double decanting, lots of dark fruit and much more rich mouthfeel the second.

    Will easily carry another 5 years or so.

    October 7, 2013 - This has improved significantly over the two years since my last bottle, and shows best with at least an hour of air. The nose lags a touch behind the palate, which is full of juicy black fruits, a pleasantly savory earthiness, and a healthy dash of spice. The tannins are still noticeable and suggest that there are plenty of good years ahead for this wine. In fact, I think it might still have another 1-2 years before it reaches peak. Well done!
