    September 11, 2020 - Like this a lot but don’t see the fireworks that others do. It’s big and rich but has elevated acidy that seems detached from the rest of the wine and therefore the whole is not harmonious. So deep with wonderful blackberry fruit. Two puzzle pieces that just don’t fit quite right. Not sure that aging more will help. (91?)

    July 4, 2020 - Drinking gorgeously today. The first thing that stands out is the vibrant acidity and freshness. Red and black fruit with eucalyptus, chocolate and licorice. Firm tannins give this nice grip and structure. This will have many years ahead. From magnum.

    July 3, 2020 - I will go with 95 because others seem to think so, but regardless, this was one of the best Napa cabs I have ever had. Deep dark color, brooding nose, and a velvety long finish. Enough age to give it some tertiary characteristics, but balanced with dark fruits and a hint of mocha. Much better than my last bottle 10 years ago. Wonderful.

    June 25, 2020 - Decanted for 7 hours. No funk at all on the nose. Color deep purple. Still some secondary flavors in the 2002.

    April 29, 2020 - Opened this tonight to have with prime rib roast. The cork fell apart. The wine was very flat, obviously bad. It has been stored under correct conditions since it came into our possession in 2015, but I cannot vouch for how it was handled prior to that time. Really disappointing.
