    May 10, 2019 - Still tasting strong at the end of its lifecycle. Nose is light to medium, but mouth is still very much full of fruit. Tastes of raisins, jam, fig. Tannic with a sweet light to medium finish.

    August 23, 2017 - Surprisingly good. Just pulled it from the racks and did a PnP. Best wine of the week (so far). If scoring 92-94.

    February 7, 2017 - A little too one dimensional for my taste. Despite 08 being a "ripe" year, the fruit source should have yielded better results. Would not buy again.

    January 16, 2015 - One of my favorite wines, a consistent high performer showcasing the Beckstoffer fruit. Elegant tannins on the finish highlighting complex flavors of tart berry and currant.

    August 30, 2014 - Very nice napa wine good value for Beckstoffer fruit, and I am a big fan. A little chewy, but great structure and flavor. Full flavor with a slightly tart finish but as my wife says, "it is very flavorful, I like it."
