    July 18, 2016 - My last bottle of this. After going thru a bunch, I think I liked it best on release. It is still good, but after the first year or so, it lost this freshness that it had that distinguished it from a lot of wines. It is still quite good though. Purple/ruby in color. The nose has cassis, some graphite, a bit of char and earth. On the palate, it is in a nice place. Showing fine tannins with moderate complexity. Good acidity. Good finish.

    April 14, 2016 - Extremely delicious, drinking beautifully now, over several nights. No formal TN, but tannins are still alive and well, balanced acidity, gorgeous fruit that is not overly ripe, and a long and satisfying finish. Drink now through 2022+.

    March 8, 2016 - Been waiting on this for five-plus years, so was nice to finally open it. What a delicious Cabernet. Not full of confected fruit that one often gets in Napa Cabs. It is definitely mostly dark fruits, and the oak is completely seamless – there is no vanilla or coconut, just some interesting spiciness. Extremely well interwoven. Paired with the steak, the wine finishes with a ensanguined note. It is a dense and broad Cabernet, with notable though ripe tannins, and still extremely youthful both in color and flavor profile. This should age well, though it showed very nicely when decanted a little over 2 hours ahead of serving. It's very nice and pleasurable, though not truly outstanding for me. Probably around 92 Points (at a push, 93) if I were forced to put a number to it. For Napa Cabs, not a bad buy at just under $60 in 2011.

    February 16, 2016 - My wife served this blind again (last time was in 2013) and once again I was completely lost. It reminded me very much of a Barolo on the nose (tar, licorice, flowers and a whiff of juniper wood in a very fresh and complex combination). On the palate, I leaned towards southern Rhone or Faugeres (this was no doubt influenced by the fact that I knew we had a bottle of Binet Jacquet at home, that I suspected she might have opened). Anyway, this is an excellent wine and I particularly like the elegance and balance it has, even though it is quite bid and bold. Still quite young.

    February 8, 2016 - Decanted two hours. Great flavors of cherry and blackberry. Solid wine which should age well for several more years.
