October 18, 2020 - This was my lone bottle and was singing tonight. Shared with friends. The nose was nice with a typical Napa Cab with some spices and cocoa on the nose. The palate had a flavor profile of
black and red cherries, chocolate, and hints of vanilla and oak from the integrated tannin structure from the barrel. A nice finish left me impressed with this wine overall. Think I should have bought more of this. In a nice window currently so if you have a bunch I would drink one to judge for yourself. While not from one of Napa's heralded vintages, this was a great wine tonight.

October 21, 2019 - Needed time to breathe. Deep purple color. Bold and structured. Full body. Very good.
April 21, 2019 - It’s a deep dark cab with a nice almost dark jam smell. I can taste notes of dark plum and deep raspberry. In the middle I can feel the velvet smooth texture and then it comes back with a slight tartness on the finish.
April 14, 2019 - Consumed over two days - still drinking well. Dark berry flavors & easy to drink. Suggest holding last bottle ~ 2 years.
December 31, 2018 - Drinking very well right now. Nice fruit. Has another year or two of life.
December 30, 2018 - classic Napa cab--restrained dark fruit, full body, moderate acidity. This bottle not particularly distinctive--somewhat austere--imperperly cellared?
December 17, 2018 - Drinking very nicely!!! Enjoy!
December 15, 2018 - Needs a few hours of air, then very enjoyable with dark red and blue fruits and some nice cedar. Slightly bitter finish that recedes as it opens up.
