    November 24, 2019 - A big wine with balance and a smooth tannic structure, but ripe and extracted in a way that blurs its varietal characteristics. Stylish, but with a fleshy, hard-to-read fruit profile. At release, this wine famously received a 98 from Robert Parker, but an 89 from Wine Spectator. At the seven-year mark, it's a pleasant, jammy sprawl that is unlikely to be confused with a 98-point Napa cab.

    September 27, 2019 - Very enjoyable. Tannins are not overpowering but are present and making a statement. Did not think it was overdone or at all a booze fest

    April 27, 2019 - Dark garnet in the glass with floral and citrus aromas. Tannins are still tight but fine with an enveloping mouthfeel. Flavors of dark black berry with a hint of menthol. Nicely done.

    September 1, 2018 - Wow this is a bold wine. Notes of blueberry, coconut, soil, blackberry with a lengthy finish. Krissy loved it and it reminded us why we went to Napa Valley for our honeymoon. Phenomenal.
