    April 7, 2014 - Holy cow this was great. Probably one of my favorites tonight. Big fruit forward napa cab. Just singing at this time. I popped and poured this as well and it was magnificent. This could easily cellar for another decade or be consumed anytime between now and then. Big, lush, concentrated. Not too tight but balanced showing lots of complexity. 30-45 second finish.

    March 26, 2014 - terrific drinker with a trace of vanilla some pepper and dark fruit
    a little short on the finish compared to tor 2006
    nevertheless it was terrific

    January 16, 2014 - sad to hear about the winemaker's passing
    initially tight and very different from the last tasting in the lack of fruit expression
    it took a few hours to open up and reveal the rich dark blackberry expression with so much else going on
    It tastes like mineral, flint and black currant (cassis).

    September 21, 2013 - 90 min decant...deep inky violet color...seductive jammy black fruits with undertones of flint, toasted oak, and tobacco on the nose...heat is also apparent on nose and indicative of need for long decant to let some alcohol evaporate...delicious soft and supple fruit on the mid-palate with exceptionally well balanced acidity and refined tannins...elements of a fortified wine on the long finish but a bit too much heat for me at 15.7%...prefer Keenan's 2007 CS Reserve which is a more refined SM effort
