    September 16, 2019 - Light and basic.

    August 31, 2019 - Oak very present on nose and palate on PnP. After 2 hour decant, oak is integrated and fruit, acidity and oak are all in balance. Medium full mountain fruit body. Signature is usually <80% Cab, and it shows in this wine but in a good way. I wish I could afford to drink wine like this every night! Lots of sediment at the end, so beware!

    August 20, 2019 - - Medium forming legs. It's balanced with a medium/full body. Round texture with a medium finish - I really like this wine. 1 hr decant. Full bodied, berry flavors. Dry smooth. Will still likely improve.

    April 28, 2019 - Usually one of the best napa valley values from year to year. This is the best I have had so far. Drink now
