    March 7, 2020 - Short decant at Portland Restaurant in London. Dark ruby core. Initially expressive with a long fruit finish that was perfectly balanced. Tightened up then open later with more polish and weightlessness. The last sips were very closed. Lovely wine just too young. Maybe 96-97 in a few years? Bracing acidity.

    February 22, 2020 - I opened a bottle of this wine hoping for a good experience. The bottle that I opened was purchased from the winery on release and stored in a temperature controlled cellar. Sadly, the wine was a total disappointment. The cork looked fine, but the wine has zero bouquet. Zero finish. Zero elegance. It is dead. It must have been cooked in shipping. What a waste.

    May 24, 2019 - Lovely polished Napa Cab
    Gushing with fruit,
    But balanced and restrained denough to keep from getting tiresome. Lovely

    March 31, 2019 - This wine is a superstar ... but still needs some time to reach maximum excellence.

    February 15, 2019 - Delicious. Ready to drink with minimal decanting. So much complexity. Rich dark fruits, tobacco, and vanilla on the nose. Even better while drinking. Strong finishing wine as well.
