  • Delicious, but still very young and primary. Decanted for about 30 minutes, and consumed over about 3 hours with friends. Tight is a good word to describe it. I wish I'd say on this bottle for a few more years, because it will probably jump up a few points. I got black cherry, plum and vanilla on the nose. Hints of leather after a couple of hours. Tasted amazing, however the tannins still need some time to settle down. The last glass was the best. I'd hold for a couple of years, or give it a long decant. Or both. Great juice..ill be seacrchlng for another bottle.

  • Stunning Napa Cab. Fruit, acidity, tannins in balance... it's all there - this is Napa royalty! Drink or hold

  • Brought to restaurant for a celebration. Decanted for an hour. Deep purple color, subtle nose, dark fruits and mocha on palate. Had a long, long finish with tannins in check, which boded well when the ribeye came. Was superb alone, but better with the meal.

  • Purchased in restaurant. Was decanted but had difficulty opening up. Despite being 13 years old the wine was tight the entire time. At the end it started to give up some of it's tightness and gave hints of chocolate and tobacco but very subtle.

  • Singing after a double decant at 6am, served at 8pm (actually had the impression that it would have done better with the cork left out of the bottle for the day).

    Bit of a floral note to the leathery cassis on the nose. Smoothe from front to back with additional mineral on the palate.

    One to let sleep unless planning a looooong decant. 93-95
