September 5, 2014 - Very good Napa cab. Leans towards an old world style but still a napa cab.

July 24, 2014 - Deep dark center, dark red rim with clear signs of age.
Sweet, cassis, plums, roasted cherries, black olives, crushed blackberries, a little creamy cheese.
Smooth, a little green olive and then brambles, a little sweet, toasty, intense black fruits, good acidity and tannin, integrated oak, fantastic length of toasty fruit.
Drinking very well now but has the backbone to last 5+ more years.

March 3, 2014 - Very approachable and has aged well. It actually can go a little more timewise. Lovely palate and finish. Too bad you can't buy more!

November 8, 2013 - Very dark red/purple color with a slightly lighter 2mm meniscus. PNP and drank 2+ glasses over 2.5hrs. I was thoroughly enthralled by this wine. Looking back at my note from 2 & 3/4 years ago this matches up perfectly. The nose has wonderful damp earth, lovely cassis and pure dark cherry notes along with tobacco, coffee, and dark chocolate. The palate has medium plus body and is nicely layered giving plenty of nuance to the core of cassis and cherry fruit. There is tobacco, subtle vanilla, and dark chocolate as well. The earthiness of the wine is so nicely balanced with the fruit, tannin, and oak here. Still can go another 5+ years. I only wish this wasn't my last bottle. 93+pts.1 person found this helpful Comment
