This is a good wine. Very fruity and lower tannins. I would prefer a bit more earthieness, but if you like a lighter and fruit forward Pinot, this would do it.

This was excellent. Strong cab with lots of tannins and a great nose. Deep dark berry/fruit flavors with a earthiness on the backend.

This was maybe a little past it’s prime, but good none the less. It had lost some of its tannic structure, and was on the lighter side. Full of cherrys and berry fruits. The last of our own Judds hill blend. Great fun and great wine.

Liked this a lot. Thought it might be a little past it’s prime, but still quite delicious. Softer tan is, but plenty of “cabieness”. Good nose and a plum and earth taste.

Wet nice well balanced chard. Not too oaky, but just enough to know it’s a Chardonnay. Mineraly, it with a crispness of apples and pears.

Decanted and drank about an hour later. Very good still, although I’m sure much more mellow than had been drank a number of years prior. Lots of earthiness with dark berry backbone.

Pretty good wine. Fruity and crisp with just enough mineral and oak to be a Chardonnay. Would drink again.

Very good. Needed a couple hours to open up. At this point it is fruity and has very light tannins. Lots of berry notes. The earthiness that’s there seems to be some leather and tobacco flavors.

Still very good. Needed decanting and an hour or two to hit its stride, but it was good.

Like this a lot. Maybe a little more than the last bottle of it. Opened and decanted about an hour plus before drinking. A little oaky savoryness and light berry flavors.

This wine was very good after the bottle had been open about an hour. Definitely lacking some nuance at first. Typical Napa cab, which I love, bold dark fruit flavors and tannic.

Really liked this wine. Good nose, berries on the front and a bit of earthiness on the backend. More fruity and less tannins than I might expect from Oakville cab.

This wine has something wrong with it. It smells corked. Oddly tastes fine, even good. Not sure what to say about it beyond that.

So. Good. This wine has a richness, with the tannins softening a bit. Early earthy flavors of leather and savory notes. It finishes with a little acidity and dark ripe berry. Great nose of that you’d expect from the famous mid valley Napa cab.

Good wine. Perfect for pizza on a Wednesday night. A little more fruit forward, bright berry flavors with a little more earthiness on the backend.

Possibly “slightly” corked. Can wine be just a little corked? It definitely has a slight mustyness, however it wasn’t so bad that it was undrinkable. In fact the actual flavor of the wine was fine, the nose was what was off.

Good approachable dessert wine. Not too sweet, mineraly with a touch of nuttiness to balance the sweet.

Still very good. Mineraly with some like citrus fruit. Much of the oakiness and butteriness seems to have mellowed.

Decanted first for about an hour. This helped a lot versus the last bottle we drank. Lighter tannins, but earthy and good.

Pleasant to drink on a hot night, but not a ton of flavors. Kind of a light strawberry/melon.

Definitely good but needed time. Should have opened an hour earlier or decanted. Earthy with some olive and dark current flavors.

Initially tight upon opening. After an hour open the nose opened beautifully to reveal its Smoky nature. Just as we remembered from our tasting years ago.
