Not happy. Upon opening the color looks a little off.Taste like it peaked last year or even before that. Disappointing for Yountville wine. Will review again after letting it open.

Still drinking well. Medium Fruit and medium tannins. Not very complex with little nose. Worth the $12 but don't buy more...

Had it with some fresh tomatoes and balsamic. Right out of the decanter, it was good to go. Really tasty with good depth.

The POV on this $8 Wine is crazy so I’ll give it a 90 rather than an 89. Lots of fruit, robust flavor and a good long lasting finish. Could go another year or two.

Initial reaction. Super delicious right out of the bottle. Cork broke on opening. Need to be careful with this one.

Turned out it needed the extra years. Big bold front end. Good fruit.

Good deep red color. Really good with pasta and meat sauce. A lingering fruit finish. The acidity is too much to drink without food.

The 2012 took 2 days to open. The 2013 should be good late 2020. The 2013 bottle in February 2021 is delicious.

Simply one of the best full bodied zins I have ever had. It got so much better witha age. Lots of fruit, great aroma and deep color. Cherries, berries, this omne has it all. Could go anothe 2 years but sadly I have only 1 bottle left.

Good now but still some tannins. It takes some time to open up. It has a beautiful nose and good fruit. Anxious to see how it tastes in 2020.

Big cab. Deep rich. Lots of Blackberry. After it opens up, a even more, deep delicious Napa cab.

Maybe I should’ve had this with pasta. Easy to drink but no body. Acidic. From a
large producer. Drinkable now. It would taste like water in a couple years.

Light. Fruity but slightly dry and acidic. Needs food. Little tannins. Sangiovese Merlot blend.

Really impressive. Decanted for an hour. This wine stands up to their reputation and I am amazed they can make a Napa cab that tastes so much better than others. Drinkable now with no overwhelming tannins but would love to try after 5 years more in the bottle. Beautiful deep red color with lots of fruit.

A different type of big wine. Decanted for 4 hours. Still has a lot of tannins. Acidic so needs and is greatly enhanced with food. Has a super long lingering finish but not like a big cab. The Sagrantino grape gives it a more fruity lingering taste. Very pleasant.

Acidic. Need more time. The fruit that is there is masked by low tannins. Drink the next one in 2020.

Nice rich Montepulciano with lots of fruit. Had with some creamy cannelloni and white pizza. Made the wine drinkable and delicious. Definitely a buy.

Wow. Lots of fruit with a ton structure. Could go another year or two. This is definitely the best $29/btl cab I’ve ever had. Try to buy more.

Nice Bordeaux blend. Tobacco, earth, lingering finish but not that rich cab finish just a really fine Bordeaux finish. Kit likes it.
