    January 17, 2016 - Worth the wait, wish I had another bottle of the same year.

    January 1, 2016 - 3.0 liter drank over two days. Very dark, extracted wine, yet has aged beautifully. Rich currant, black pepper, hints of leather and licorice. Terrific.

    December 19, 2015 - Outstanding wine. In the drinking window. Very typical Napa valley floor cab profile. Tannins have softened. Decanted 30 minutes.

    August 19, 2015 - Pw/1 hr decant. Clear, almost black ink color. Hard to believe it's that old. If you like monster, in your face reds, this is the real deal. Deep stained legs, it's still a baby. Concentrated, intense tannins with plenty of black/blue fruit that puckers the lips in a good way. Huge body, huge intensity, rich flavors of earth, tar, saddle and licorice. Not for the novice. This could/should age well yet for a decade or more. Nothing off.

    July 17, 2015 - Dark red almost purple. Cherry and a hint of vanilla, fine tannins. Wish I had another bottle
