July 4, 2016 - Ripe blackberry and black currant, slight notes of old leather and cigar box, very savory. Beautiful mouthfeel... velvety. Tannins are ripe and have softened. Great balance of fruit, earth, oak, and tannin. I would have guessed the price point to be double or triple what it really is.
I'm happy that we opened this in 2016, but if I stumble across this vintage again in 3 to 5 years, I'm picking up more.

March 19, 2016 - Classic well balanced Napa Cabernet drinking well. Full bodied, with solid fruit core with cassis, and sweet berry to the fore. There was a slightly bitter off note on the finish which detracted somewhat. In summary, very good but lacking the wow factor or complexity expected at the price point.

March 12, 2016 - Delicious!! Balance is on the money. Well integrated with dusty fruit; no sappy fruit here. Finish is long and tannins are even.

February 26, 2016 - Slightly corked but we still drank it as the fruit was there and it paired well with the duck breast.
