  • My second to last bottle of this case. Wow, it is really singing. Dark, opaque purple. Nose of blackberry, blueberry, menthol, graphite, cedar, and espresso. Ripe full palate of dark fruit. Excellent length. Integrated oak. Pleasant acidity. Mature tannins.

  • Very nice, classic Cali Cab, a bit short of the Mt. Veeder Cab we had alongside (2005), but this has all the qualities we have become to love - Dark, full bodied with notes of black fruit, plum, coffee, cedar, mocha and vanilla, excellent structure and balance, more fruit forward than the '05 Veeder, silky smooth on the palate with outstanding length, very tasty! (92 Points).

  • Similar to previous notes. This wine has settled down and evolved into something special. Dark purple with garnet rim. Nose of blueberry, cedar, graphite, and vanilla. Ripe full palate of blackberry, blueberry, leather, minerals, and integrated oak. Nice acidity. Sweet tannins. Delightful.

  • Similar to previous notes. Almost opaque dark garnet. The nose is still pretty oaky, but the palate is ripe, fruit-forward, balanced, and delicious. Lots of blueberry, blackberry, graphite, vanilla, and minerals. Mouthwatering acidity. Superb length. Youthful tannins. This wine has the structure to age gracefully for many, many years. Will it improve from today? Harder to say. A convincing refutation to those who say that an excellent Napa Cab can't be had for under $50.
