    April 17, 2019 - The wine had a relatively high acid in comparison to its fruit profile which almost gave it a thin impression. Over time in decanter the fruit profile came forward more but the acid remained relatively high. There was generous oak but used very judiciously where it did a great job to change the tannin profile but not infecting the wine with oaky flavors. This wine was pulled in presence of Napa wine lovers and most of them did not enjoy this wine. I however thought it was a very beautifully balanced put together wine that showed finesse without overbearing fruit profiles which is all too common in Napa today. Despite enjoying this wine I do not think one can justify the price easily.

    December 12, 2017 - Wow, the depth of this wine was amazing. Not a pure 1st growth Harlan but still a very good bottle, even for 2011. Cedar, spice, pencil shaving, dark cherry. Long finish. So Good!!!
