    September 20, 2016 - Still a little young if you want to PnP. Needed a good two hours to really start showing its best stuff. Smooth, integrated tannins, good acidity, dark purple, blackberry, licorice, and stone on the palate. After three hours, developed a very nice finish. Very nice California style Bordeaux. Maybe a better score in a few years, but damn good now. 94

    August 27, 2016 - PnP.... Outstanding and in balance. Blackberries on the palate with leather & red clay on the nose, reflective of the strong Merlot presence. Will still have life for 10+ years.

    April 6, 2016 - This is definitely more of a classic style by Napa standards. Could use a bit more air or time in the bottle I think. Still quite good, but I personally prefer a more fruit forward style for Napa Cabernet.

    March 12, 2016 - Raspberry dominated with a touch of darker fruit (black currant?). Chocolate. Vanilla, lightly oaked. Elegant and balanced. Not overextracted. Like it a lot.

    March 12, 2016 - Dark garnet. Red fruit, spice, licorice , a hint of vanilla but the oak is very subtle. Elegant, not heavy, more red than dark fruit, nice medium ripe cherry and moderately long finish.
