    November 9, 2019 - Drank over several hours. Very closed at first and a little disjointed. Re-corked and came back about 5 hours later to finish the rest of the bottle. The wine started to come together, but not to the extent I had experienced in the past. In hindsight I should have let the wine slow ox for several hours. In any case I think the wine was at or past its peak drinking window.

    July 20, 2019 - More earth than fruit. Tobacco, black tea, olive, cured meat, herbs, faint red fruit, hint of plum. Bit of a hot note on the back. Oak and tannins receded. Very disappointed.

    June 13, 2019 - Pnp, didnt have a decanter when we opened this. Imo really needed a decant to open up. Very sappy, sweet red and black fruit, new oak prevalent, big chewy palate. After a few glasses we recorked and drank the following day. Much better day 2, classy New world Cab nose, sweet dark fruits, well integrated oak, palate had mellowed out and felt more balanced. Very nice wine, still very youthful, no secondaries yet. Drink now with a good decant or overnight slow-ox.

    May 19, 2019 - Almost a 96. Decanted 1 hour. Such purity of fruit. Deep and brooding. Huge wine - but balanced so not overdone. Long finish. Wish I had more. Well done.

    March 23, 2019 - Some of the purest fruit you will find in a Napa Cab. This is singing with a 3 hour decant. Feminine and silky with clean fruit driven notes
