    September 23, 2017 - Pop and pour that sat for two additional hours in the bottle. Definitely extracted and borderline syrupy but somehow maintains freshness. Ready to drink with structure still intact but all elements fully integrated. Sticky raspberry, cola, cool minerality, cassis, and dark chocolate. In prime drinking now and likely for another year.

    March 11, 2017 - Very nice, very easy to drink, smooth. Nicely combines a ripe, fruit-driven style with some stem, pencil led, and dried herbs. Some sweetness from the oak, but not overdone there. Contains its 14.8% abv very well. Fairly modern style and not notably complex. Drank after decanting about an hour. This is sturdy and could lay down for years more, unsure of further development.

    December 11, 2016 - PnP with decant and drank over 60 min. Tasted like a baby Merus. Whooped ass vs a 2005 Meteor reserve. Perfume nose with blue and blackberry liqueur notes. Faint tannins. This was a good wine.

    November 17, 2016 - Heavy earthy notes on open after a soft crumbling cork. Wines was intact and ready to roll after 60 min decant. Heavy blackberry notes without being jammy, think sugar free jam. Graphite and pencil shavings with a medium finish that just halted and didn't linger.

    July 11, 2016 - Napa Visit 2016; 7/10/2016-7/13/2016: PnP, could use some air, but was fantastic out of bottle. Good mix of tannins, oak, and red fruit, along with black plum liqueur, all mixed without being overdone. A lovely wine. Great nose of floral, fruit and perfume. Well integrated across the board. Can definitely see the tie to Merus. 93 pts
