A bit fat and flabby. Structure mostly gone. Simple

Red fruits. Moderate tannins. Plenty of acid and tannin matched with the fruit for a long life.

Big and modern with obvious fruit and oak. A bit hot throughout. Not really my style preference.

My first Siduri wine. About 1hr decant. Amazing purity and balance. Loads of red Cali fruit but followed by layers of spice and earth. Wonderful wine, great first experience with this producer. Should get better but drinking well right now

Very nice. New world in many aspects but plenty of acidity and lift. Drinking well

Loads of structure and tannin. While the oak was evident, the wine was very restrained and showed some spice and cigar box. Would love to follow this over a few years but it is my only bottle. Future seems bright.

While certainly fruit forward, there is an elegance to this wine. Medium weight with bright red fruits. Nice kick of acidity and a long finish to boot. Very nice and drinking well after a short decant.

Big modern napa cab, yet maintains a balance and smooth quality. Medium tannin with dark fruit and some vanilla/spice from the oak. Drinking very well right now with some air but a few years could be very good for this wine

Drank very well, better at room temp than chilled

Very light in body with red fruited notes, specifically raspberry and cranberry. Decanted about one hour and it continued to improve with air. Very good food wine.

While still a big wine, drinking very well with motly resolved tannins. Very good, dark fruit, vanilla, spice, some aged characteristics like tobacco

Very basic, serviceable California Pinot. Mid weight, soft, simple wine.

The weight and mouthfeel of a Pinot but with loads of acidity. Red fruited and crisp. Drank well improving with air. Will hold other bottle for a while just to see how it ages. My first experience with trousseau, and a very good one at that

Delicious, acidity matches well with the sweetness. Apricot and orange with some spice in the background. Very food friendly

Drank well with a short decant. Well balanced and not as big of a wine as I expected. Very good

Very modern style and distinctly California. Ripe red fruit, rather simple

Improved significantly as it came to room temp and saw more air. Very crisp and light. Nice with food

Ok, not great. Probably more a testament to the poor vintage than anything else. Very simple and while elegant just not much complexity. Tannins are well rounded and probably not much life ahead.

Probably in its sweet spot for me. Very modern in style but exceptionally smooth and polished. Red fruit and loads of vanilla from the oak but very good for what it is. Much better than my las bottle a few years ago close to release. Will not wait too long on my remaining bottle as I don't see this getting any better.

In the middle ground for Napa cab, not over the top but certainly not understated or "old-school". Very young, will let remaining bottles rest for a few years minimum.

Drinking incredibly well right now. Tannins are still present so I will hold my remaining bottle for a few years but there is no harm in opening this now. Great example of a prime vineyard in napa. Leans toward the modern style

Decanted briefly. Classic cali cab, mostly resolved tannins. great balance of fruit and acid and tannin. Some spice and earthy notes in the background. Drinking great with some potential, although there's no harm in drinking it now. Very very good

PnP. Drinking well, big and dark with some jammy flavors. Smooth and balanced, drank very similarly to an 09 ridge geyesrville consumed the other day

Big bold and modern but with good structure. Much improved from the previous bottle about a year ago.

Out of 375. Drinking very well but with promising structure. Dark red fruit on the forefront with a very distinct port like flavor. Very good and an interesting contrast to the 09 Lytton that followed. I would say more approachable than the Lytton at this time.

Out of 375. Drank following an 09 geyesrville. Outstanding structure and balance. Drinks very well right now and will be fun to follow over the years. Very dark fruits with some spice on the finish. As good of a Lytton as I have had

Drinking very well after a couple of years in the cellar. Very crisp and focused for a Cali Chardonnay. A nice balanced food friendly wine

On the slightly sweet side but not cloying. A very distinct and telltale flavor that all Belle Glos seem to have for me. Very much California with lots of sweet cherries. A little noticeable heat, probably not an ager IMO.

Pop and pour. Drinking great right now, perfect balance and structure, great dark fruits and some floral notes in the background. Got better as the night went on, I fully expect this bottling to improve for many years. My benchmark for Napa cab.

Very young, tried to give it a lot of time in the decanter but it never gave much back. Some nice components but I will wait for a couple of years on the rest of my Bedrock syrahs

Drinking well, although not as rich and sweet as I was expecting. Not as much depth in flavor as I come to expect from this bottling

Great nose with a fresh crispness and acidity. Some citrus flavors and grassiness.

Relatively mature, some funk initially needed to blow off, tannins still present, showing some secondary characteristics as the fruit is beginning to recede

Out of a split. Modern napa cab style. Oak is pretty well integrated at this point as are the tannins. Big and brooding

Almost spritzy at first so left in the decanter for a couple hours. After the spritz blew off, a beautiful red fruited medium weight wine appeared. Needs plenty of cellar time or a long decant

Modern styled. Drinking great for what it is; a huge scaled Cali Pinot. Loads of cherry and some spice in the background. Tannins mostly resolved
