    March 23, 2020 - Like their regular Cab bottling but more concentrated. Unfortunately its a hot mess. 15.5% Alcohol.

    November 10, 2019 - Wow. Very pretty. Decanted for 4 hours. Dark purple with a slight hint of brick on the rim. Graphite, dark fruits, dried blackberry, forrest floor and new glove leather. Secondary notes coming thru beautifully. Supple and luxurious and in total balance. Layered and textured with cocoa-powder tannin, the finish lasts. Complete from beginning to end. Throwing some sediment as well. In a perfect drinking window - with plenty of time ahead of it.

    November 9, 2019 - This was absolutely amazing! Bold yet smooth. Hints of chocolate to start. An abundance of dark fruit throughout. Loved this!

    January 6, 2018 - Decanted for sediment and then poured - so some airtime but not a lot. Consumed directly after a glass of white tonight, this got a lot more attention than a few weeks prior when it was opened as bottle six of a long wine night. The color is dark and inky, the nose is of black currant and earth. On the palate this is undeniably Napa cab, but delivered in a nice balanced package. The dark fruits, dusty tannins, earthy and herbaceous notes all seem to be working in harmony here. Yes there is a little heat from the alcohol, but not too much to be distracting. I think this is drinking really well right now and if you have one to pop open you will not be disappointed.
