    December 28, 2019 - From memory. Dark center, red rim with modest signs of age. Biggish nose of macerated black cherries, plums and blackcurrant, tied together with some oak polish. Similar in the mouth, biggish but has something behind it. Definitely a valley floor Cabernet. Tannin and acid on the low end, which suggests drinking soon. A good effort overall, and well made.

    June 14, 2018 - PnP - consistent with prior experience. This is a full bodied, riper style napa cab, which seems to have benefitted from the bottle age. It is pretty well knit together, with dark fruit some leather and tobacco notes. Definitely more on the bigger fruit side of the profile but balanced and enjoyable.

    January 12, 2018 - PnP - very dark in color but surprisingly not as extracted on the palate as I was expecting. Definitely Napa Cab but well made and in balance. The fruit leans to the dark side, with some nice tobacco notes coming through. Good not great.

    April 6, 2013 - this wine was really enjoyable...a step up from most of the nice/good cabernets from Napa I've had. a little more hints of tobacco, bitter root that help accentuate the wine, and less of the vanilla/fruit that all the other ones seem to hallmark in their wines. big thumbs up! really nice structure too--somewhere between a plump, full bodied wine and a lean, elegant, graceful, streamlined one...$90
