    August 3, 2016 - Really nice fruit, on the sweet side, cassis, cherry, blueberry, lengthy compelling finish. Good contribution from the barrel. Still youthful and that's good.

    March 23, 2016 - This was an absolutely stunning wine. In a week that featured '95 Mouton, '09 Le Meal, '08 The Line Grenache, '09 This is Not an Exit Syrah, and '01 Lokoya Howell Mtn, this guy was up there near the top of the list. Decanted this magnum for 2-3 hours. Exhibited superbly smooth tannins and a long, pleasant finish. Classic Bordeaux nose and taste for this wonderful California blend. Drink it now if you've got it because it's right in it's sweet spot though it likely has several more years left.

    December 17, 2015 - Mouthfeel. Balance. Delicious. Casis, leather, tobacco, lead pencil, cedar, plum, BlackBerry, chocolate, coffee, dark berries. Very yummy.

    November 30, 2015 - This wine tastes great. It's still young though and should be even better later. It's very enjoyable right after opened. Hints of lead pencil integrates well with typical California dark berries, with traces of spices. It maintained its peak till 3.5 hours and then slightly down from there. Secondary flavors should develope more after a few years. This wine has a great potential of delveloping an even greater balance between Bordeaux style and Cal Cab
    traits later. I will keep my other bottles for at least another 5 years.

    April 1, 2015 - I had high expections on this wine and my expections were not only met but exceeded. Decanted for about 30 mins and drank over 2 hours. Elegant and delightful. A very refined wine with lots of life ahead that is drinking extremely well at this point. Room filling bouquet. Youthful with nuances beginning to emerge. Fills your mouth with flavor of fruit, some tar, tobacco and the slightest hint of oak while all along it remains elegant, balanced and refined. No hard edges, no heat. Glad I have one more bottle left.
