    April 10, 2017 - Drank this with a fried chicken that had heavy black pepper and the wine picked up and highly accentuated the pepper spice on the middle of the tongue. The body was medium-heavy with tart pie cheery and light plum. The middle is where the pepper spice blasted through and the finish had medium tannin that hung on along with the pepper. It went well with the chicken but the pepper flavor was BIG so consider if you will enjoy that if you are having a peppery dish to eat.

    April 13, 2015 - Tart cherry up front and smooth but tart tannin finish

    March 9, 2015 - The cork was sunken and somewhat compromised. Gunk collected inside the foil. I was nervous. But Chad was fine. Consistent with my 2014 tasting notes. Lovely and delightful in aromas and palate. I will enjoy the rest of this lot soon, while at its peak.

    January 26, 2015 - I agree this bottle is in a beautiful spot - by far the best of the 6 we had. Tastes like it was twice the cost - beautiful red fruits, smooth silky tanins, relatively long finish.

    November 15, 2014 - Wow. A year after my previous bottle, this 2010 Carneros has rocketed up 5 points in my estimation. Light bodied, bright ruby, bountiful nose filled with flowers and fruits. The palate is now luscious, balancing appealing acidity with satisfying smoothness; blueberries, dark cherries, and cranberries mellow into a suave finish. As always, Chad is rad.
