  • This selection was stored unopened in my cellar since 2004 and opened it today, my reward for that is that its wonderfully surprising. Big nose with big fruit (cab franc style) and only moderate tannin. On the tongue, it is fruity with some unexpected black cherry flavor, but also with cedar in the background, which is reminiscent of a 2006 Sequoia Grove cab. My only regret is that I did not buy more of this excellent wine to store. My assessment of this one is that it significantly improves with age.

  • Initially big tannins with petrol. After a halfhour- tannins mellow, black olive notes begin, and leather is present. Delicious- must have cab franc - barnyard notes

  • Fairly big nose anticipates big fruit and big mountain tannins. On the tongue, though, it is quite restrained--some typical cab blackberry flavors, but it does not blow you away. It is quit mellow and, while not a complex wine, easy to drink. Tannin does rear up a bit at the back of the palate. Also, there is an annoying sourness in the finish.

  • this bottle was really quite good. Lots going on with the nose..tobacco leaf, dark fruit, plum. Palate brought the same with cassis flavors and mint. Finish was drying. Nice wine

  • .
    C: typical dark napa cab color
    N: hints of dark fruit, plum
    P: good structure still remains. Fruit is plum with touch of prune. alcohol peaks its head on the finish. swirl on the glass with lots of fine legs confirms. Toasted, burnt oak showing.
    F: a bit drying in the back of the throat.

    Decent QPR for a mid week quaffer. I would agree with the drinking window, this has a number of years ahead of it.
