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+.1 person found this helpful Comment

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 2011.2 people found this helpful Comment

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.2 people found this helpful Comment

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

January 2, 2016 - This wine is in a good spot. Has a lot of life left in it, but very good now. Notes of cassis, toasty oak and black currants. Serious structure in the mount, but well integrated with fruit and acid. Delicious!
