Community Tasting Note

  • ageverett Likes this wine: 96 points

    June 20, 2020 - One of my favorites, and certainly didn't disappoint in this vintage! Dark red and some black fruit; Rutherford Dust; what's not to love? Gave it a little time to breathe (probably 90 minutes) and it was rocking.

    Cheers! MJP

    7/30/20, 2:53 PM - Right on - I haven't met Rob in person yet, but hope to next trip to Napa. We were scheduled to be there in late April, but that obviously got cancelled. Virtual interactions with him (and anecdotal evidence from multiple sources) suggest he is an incredible individual.
