    June 17, 2019 - Decanted for two hours, consumed over there nights.
    Big red fruit but not over the top. No noticeable tannins or acid which may affect long term aging but not enjoyability at this point.

    February 18, 2019 - This one was a little less structured and a little more over the top, even on day two. Still enjoyed it but it was more like being strapped onto the back of a rocket. Brace yourself.

    February 1, 2019 - PnP, rest into a wide body decanter. Drank over 2 hr. A little funk on opening but blew off quickly. Obstinate and restrained for the 90 min, but then blossomed nicely. Could have used an even longer decant, and I should have prepared as much. Black fruit with hints of red fruit, black tea and faint herbal notes popped in and out. Some dustiness in the tannins but not overwhelming. As others noted, not sure this has enough acid for a lengthy aging process. That being said, I still don’t think this wine is in its prime drinking zone just yet and think the score reflects the lack of extended air. The potential is still there for 95-96 upside. Will try again soon with a much longer decant.

    January 28, 2019 - Very enjoyable Napa cab with a lot of fruit notes of cherry and cassis on the nose and palate. Not a lot of complexity, heaviness and lack of acid holds back a higher score.

    January 20, 2019 - 2016 Becklyn Lineup & Vertical (Calistoga): 2016 Becklyn lineup and vertical tasting of Becklyn NV 2012, 2013, 2015, 2016.

    Unfortunately this bottle of the 2012 Becklyn NV was flat, bitter, and near flavorless. Some wet funk on the back end. Sad panda....
