    October 6, 2016 - A beautiful, complex, soft and now very mature Alexander Valley cab from a very good winemaker. A reasonable QPR at our acquisition cost. We popped and poured this on a whim last night and up front it was too cold and needed more air so 1st glass very muted, 2nd glass singing - give this at least 30-60 minutes in the decanter and let it warm up from the cellar temp to much closer to room temp. Tannins still present but very smooth and totally integrated - my guess is that with proper cellaring this wine still has 2-3 really good years to go but at this point has definitely peaked - I see no further upside to continued cellaring. Dark purple, soft mouth feel, good texture, very smooth and complex, well integrated and balanced with a reasonable but not super long aftertaste. Nose dark and floral with dark fruit, violet and black pepper. Primary flavors up front included dark fruit, oak and cassis with warm cooking spices and again a floral violet / lilac note on the very end. Definitely recommend this wine.
