    May 4, 2019 - My last two bottles of this brilliant wine.
    Slightly faded fruit but some nice secondary flawors coming to the fore.
    Decant was 4 hours and it didn't loose any structure over the 3 hours it was consumed.
    92-93 points

    November 5, 2018 - The best of the various '10 CT Napa cab bottlings, our 2nd bottle of 4. Drinking perfectly, no further upside in cellaring and need to put this into the drinking rotation. A very good QPR at this point given original CT price - another great Smig winemaking effort. Would recommend at least a short decant, we used aerating filter and drank well 1st night as well as held up very well 2nd night with overnight refrigeration. Soft, mature, well balanced, smooth, good mouth feel and both acid and tannins virtually all gone so would not hold on to this much longer. Deep dark purple color, soft aromatic dark nose of violet, blueberry, blackberry and lavendar with palate of balanced oak, cassis, dark fruit and licorice. Highly recommend for the next 1-2 years, may start dropping fruit after that.

    March 3, 2018 - Notes after four hours open. Fully mature and perhaps in gentle decline compared to 7 months ago, though this was more reminiscent of earlier notes I made. Could be that my exceptional experience last time was lightning in a botttle, but I also don’t expect my final one to perform any better than this so I will enjoy later this year. 4+11+16+8= 89
