    April 30, 2017 - Slow oxed for 1.5 hours but probably needed a decant. Aromas of dusty berry, dried cherry, blackberry, iron and cassis. Classic Napa Valley nose. Flavors of blackberry, iron, dark cherry, earth and a sour dark fruit note. Think it needs some more air. Will revisit in 2 hours.

    Much improved. Fruit is much fuller and carries over to the finish.

    April 28, 2017 - Medium garnet red. Nose was a little herbaceous with dark red cherries. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium body. Dark red berries and a touch of black fruit, some dirt too. Great structure and medium plus finish. Drink till 2018.

    August 14, 2016 - Sunday Group: 2006 Napa Cabernets (Our house): Purplish crimson color. Hedonistic and forward, with a mix of blue and black fruit leaping from the glass. Velvety tannins- very much in the same vein as wine D in terms of the texture- along with flavors of blue and black fruit, spice and cocoa. Finishes with length and balance. Begins to show just a bit of heat, but remains very tasty.

    My #3, Domino's #1
    Group #1, 39 pts

    July 12, 2016 - One of the best cabs I've had in quite a long time. Drinking very very well.
