    May 20, 2017 - Leonetti Cellar Round Table Tasting (Knightsbridge - Northbrook IL): Tasting, brief note. Slightly more aromatic complexity than the 2005 just tasted with some earth, bigger spice and cigarbox, alongside black cherry, plum and cassis, all maturing nicely. Good weight and balance, even if not as much concentration as the 2005 now.

    March 19, 2017 - Captivating as always. There is a prominent, grainy sweetness at first but it falls away soon after, revealing a delicious, sumptuous wine that's deep and penetrating.

    February 14, 2017 - Similar to previous notes. This needs about 1.5 hours to properly show what it has. There is a lovely grainy, gritty, sweet texture to this wine which is unusual but welcome. Red fruit is pronounced with a weight and intensity that is beautiful. There's so much energy, vibrancy and vitality to this cab; it's scintillating. There is purpose but also ease and grace. The cooler climate of Walla Walla vs. Napa is evident and is a welcome different style, and what a style it is; this is a gem.

    January 11, 2017 - Harmonious. This had a grainy, sugary texture at first that didn't bode well, but it quickly evolved, losing any simplistic sugary profile and turned more mineral-driven with more energy, detail and purity. There is an acidity which really provides a kind of electric vibrancy to the mix. Medium-bodied, slightly oily, taking on increasing savory notes with increasing secondary and tertiary aspects. There is a rare beauty to this; very satisfying. Would be difficult to get tired of this. 95+pts.
