    March 2, 2019 - Last wine of the night but showed well. Restrained but dark fruit emerged nicely. Tannins and oak were perfectly integrated. Plenty of acid indicates this has many years left. PQR on this is phenomenal!

    February 26, 2019 - Opened, but not decanted with my wine group. Everyone had this as either their favorite or 2nd favorite wine of the night (my 2nd favorite). It still has lots of fruit, although I picked up some notes of stewed fruit. Long finish, full bodied.

    March 1, 2018 - For a 2009 vintage that is approaching 10 years in the bottle, this wine is still tight and pretty primary on the palate. I gave it some air (not much) but it didn’t open up that much. Nice nose of violet and dark berry notes. Subtle oak and blueberry core, along indications of tobacco and some tannins. I think this may show better with more air or a long decant and with half a bottle left, we will see. 90+ Points and pretty pleasant.

    July 15, 2017 - I'm a big fan of this wine. This is just entering its drinking window. A wine of great balance. Unmistakably California, but definitely delicious.

    I had the first of these wines too early, and a result I have not rebought my allocation in subsequent years. I am now regretting this decision.
