    August 19, 2021 - A little slow out of the gate but given an hour or two it opened up and turned out to be very nice.

    July 10, 2021 - Orlando CT & Friends Offline (Fishbones): Ended the reds with the youngest Napa and it was perhaps the most Napa of the bunch. Fruity and intense and very bright and big and bold. Some white pepper which was there although the fruit dominated.

    January 14, 2021 - I think this is at peak. With an hour of air, it shows striking balance between old school Napa structure and modern Napa ripe fruit. Good acidity, as well, and a alluringly complex bouquet. No hurry on this, but no reason to wait, either.

    January 10, 2021 - Cork disintegrated during opening. Decanted for 30 minutes and served slightly below rom temp.

    Nose: Unripe raspberry, cranberry, hints of cedar, white pepper.

    Palate: Ripe raspberry, graphite, hints of vanilla, well integrated tannins.

    In a pretty good spot right now for a 12 year old Napa cab. Still a fair amount of fruit, with secondary flavors starting to peak out.

    June 22, 2020 - This bottle didn’t show as well as my last one, in November. Just never really fully seemed to open up and display all it has.
