November 7, 2014 - Very good. All in balance and big, strong but not overpowering flavors.

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.
