    June 8, 2019 - While delicious, this is just past its prime and starting to fade. Still enjoyable - nice black fruit, mushroom, and tobacco notes - but would suggest if you have any more in your cellar that it’s time to drink up. Likely would have scored higher at earlier time.

    February 5, 2019 - Excellent cab, definitely in its drinking window, but easily five more years at this level. Tannins are smooth.

    July 19, 2017 - Remarkable. Still fine tannin, very smooth, medium body. One of the very best cabs I've tasted
    in quite awhile.

    April 23, 2016 - 4th Saturday group "uptown" tasting (R&D's): Inky color. Aromas of blackberry, chocolate, vanilla and cassis with just a bit of VA too. Full-bodied with flavors of plum, cassis, vanilla and blue fruit with a long finish. Balanced. 92-93 pts. Guessed Napa Cab Sauv.
