January 24, 2016 - Served blind. This was WOTN at our table. Exceptionally made. Very approachable right now after a 4 hour decant. Rich round tannins. Very balanced and drinking incredibly well.

January 20, 2016 - Served blind, this was WOTN at the table, and my WOTN. Extremely balanced, we were guessing Mondavi Reserve. I guess it's in the same league. Lingering acidic finish, savory bell pepper. Not flashy, just put together really well.

February 12, 2015 - Nice cabernet with soft tannins and moderate structure. Fruit a bit muted and frankly I expected more from this wine.

January 6, 2014 - As I start to taste the 2008 cabs again, I am struck by how good this vintage is, give them enough time, and they are really coming together. Ripe dark fruit and spices, tannins starting to be in balance.
