    November 4, 2017 - Probably waited a bit toooo long. Hidden away in the cellar. Color was nice, very deep and garnet like. The legs are fast but there was virtually no nose, and no discernable body. Slight tannin's but definitely past its prime, if there was one.

    January 23, 2017 - Reviewed twice......satisfactory, but not much else.

    January 23, 2017 - Tasted on day three after opening and there's not much left. Musty, skunky nose with limited fresh fruit aroma, hot alcohol on the mid-palate but still an attractive black currant finish.

    January 20, 2017 - Not as disappointing as the other reviews, although this winery seems to have fallen into a "funk", and they are producing an inferior water-down product compared to what I have tasted in the past. It's only an 80's score on what should be better from a winery in Healdsburg, which has consistently produced superior cabernet products. I really don't know how to account for the decline in this property, when in the past they have been so superior in their red wine production. I'm in a quandary as to what to assume . ????
