October 2, 2014 - Outstanding. Smooth, refined and in a good place. Drank from 1/2 bottle and it was perfect. 95++
April 24, 2014 - Some Napa CS (Vila Viniteca - Madrid): Toffee punch at first. Espresso also.
Then black fruit. Smokie and mineral on the nose, that's a performance.
Liquorice on the palate. Full volume. Richly mouthfeel. Very lengthy. That's a superior class bottle. Just needs time to show its real beauty but promises.
Al principio, golpe a caramelo de café con leche. También expreso.
Después fruta negra. Ahumada y mineral en nariz, así se comporta.
En boca regaliz. A pleno volumen. Sensación en boca plena. Muy buen recorrido.
Es una botella de clase superior. Sólo necesita tiempo para mostrar su belleza de verdad pero promete.

October 13, 2013 - Excellent wine. Hints of tobacco and coffee on the nose. A hint of cedar with blueberry and maybe some cassis. Not a pushy wine, just classic (modern style) Napa. Really liked this wine a lot.

August 16, 2013 - Very nice. Decanted, but also popped and poured. A little overwhelmed with smoke and oak on initial taste, but after just 30 minutes, very balanced with the typical araujo minerality.
August 29, 2012 - Young. Decanted through an aerator. Then let sit for 30 minutes. Well balanced. Every bit as good as the 05. Dark fruit, plum, and hint of licorice up front. Tannins are well rounded. Long finish of dark fruit
