    March 9, 2019 - Earthy, mushroom smell. Vanilla and sweet up front on the taste Still quite tannic for a 13 year-old wine. Not much of a finish though.

    April 9, 2015 - Full, ruby appearance. Lovely bouquet of cherries, raspberries, and cedar over notes of leather, conifer, and mountain air. Tightly wound but resolves itself after an hour in the glass, offering a full body, plenty of red fruit, and flavors that toggle between youth and maturity. Exhibits grip and length on the green peppercorn finish. This is a serious effort. Decant or let it slumber a few more years.

    July 2, 2014 - Just a really, really solid bottle of $20 cab. You can't go wrong with this one. Cork was saturated only up to 1/8 of an inch, with moisture up to 25% of the cork. I think this is good for a while. See previous notes.

    March 6, 2014 - Excellently balanced, understated cab with wonderful black fruit tones, and a luscious palate of cassis, blackberry and a bit of vanilla. Nothing truly unusual, just a quite solid and well made Napa cab. Unlike other reviewers, my bottle had very soft tannins that suggested it was ready to drink, though I'm sure it will also hold up for several more years. Salud!
