March 13, 2016 - Needs an hour in the decanter for some initial alcohol to blow off. This is a fruit forward, very new world sort of wine, but with delicate structure.

December 7, 2015 - Aging gracefully at age 9. Deep purple with no sediment. Cherry, spice, blackberry and licorice. Lovely layers and palate coating charm.
If a date, this was a 32 year old blind date who shows up dressed conservatively yet hints over the entire dinner what might happen if you want it to...

December 11, 2010 - Needs more time on the shelf or decant for at least four hours. We did not do it justice with a two hour bottle decant. Beautiful ruby red color in the glass. Great mountain fruit in perfectly sweet tannins, but it will be better in a year or two.

October 23, 2010 - Winery Tastings, October 2010; 10/22/2010-10/25/2010 (Mt. Veeder, Oakville, Spring Mountain, St. Helena, Calistoga, Napa): Always fantastic. Fat, rich wine with plenty of alcohol, yet it needs time in the bottle. Big, bold vanilla and dark fruit. 2 minute finish. It's the real thing, but I think it needs a few years. Definitley asked for a second pour, and Steve kindly accomodated. Awesome stuff. Score sure to go up with time.
