    November 25, 2021 - Beautiful color. Complex nose and flavor with a long finish. 2011 seems to have turned out better than expected.

    November 21, 2021 - PnP’d. Dark red color. Pretty average Napa Cab. Tannic and high OH with green elements. Harsh on the palate.

    October 15, 2021 - Same as previous bottle, but more red than purple hues, more tannic, and is aging quickly.

    May 28, 2021 - 1hr+ decant. Dark red color with purple hues. Tons of smoke and burning wood on the nose. Same elements on the palate with a little misplaced funk. Was very nice but a little unbalanced. Medium finish.

    February 26, 2021 - 1hr decant. Dark red color. Nose contains cherry fruit and cigars. Medium depth. Great age shows through with cherries and cedar on the palate. Wine still has some time left in it. Another example of these Napa Cabs needing time, and I’m still convinced people drink these way too young.
