October 25, 2014 - Good solid 2005 Cali Cab Sav. Decanted for 30 min. Wine is nicely integrated now with slight tannins left. Can still easily age for a few more years without issues. Nose of medium dark red fruits with some oak and a short-medium finish. Good balance. Nothing spectacular or profound, but solid.

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!
