    November 30, 2018 - Three and a half years after I opened my first bottle, this ACV proves the point that age (and patience) matters. The reward is a finely mellowed CA cab relying upon finesses, not super extraction. After a two hour decant the "bite" is gone and what's left are fine grain tannins, dark berries and the comfort of knowing it was worth the wait.

    October 26, 2018 - Dark berry and eucalyptus on the nose. Flavors of dark chocolate, blackberry, black cherry and cola. Smooth tannins with a round mouthfeel. Medium+ finish.

    September 4, 2018 - I did a Coravin taste-off between 2010, 11 & 12 vintages. The one word that I would use is consistency.
    2010 - (92) Smoothest tannins (likely as the oldest of the trio) and a very rewarding finish but a bit shy on the nose.
    2011 - (91) Detected a bit of "stewed" fruit on the nose but otherwise was a solid performer in a weaker vintage
    2012 - (93) Most robust nose, with spicy notes and the tannins were evident still. Longest finish and likely a long life ahead.
    Overall I spent a good 45 minutes going over each one side by side and if tasted blind I could have easily been convinced they were all the same bottle but maybe the 2012 would have stood out.
    I view this as a strong testament to outstanding wine making and vineyards as WS rates the Napa Cab Vintages 2010 and 2012 at 96 while the 2011 only garnered 86. That is why CVV is always one of my go to producers.

    August 24, 2018 - Great nose, nice blue and dark fruit, cedar on palate with long finish. A significant amount of sediment. Drinking much better than 2 years ago.
