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.
November 20, 2018 - Wow! Strong wine with intense velcpvet finish. Really drinking well.
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.
August 3, 2018 - Great wine, also first wine I used my Coravin with so I have plenty left. Rich full flavor but with a subtleness of tannins and spice to be savored. Long finish. Can't wait to pour my next glass!
May 29, 2018 - I wanted this to be my favorite wine at our race day BBQ. This is the first of three bottles of this wine I purchased three years ago. For now, the fruit on this wine is over the top. I found the wine to be almost port like and way too extracted for my taste. I won't open my next bottle for at least three years and hope the additional time allows the fruit to calm down. The 2012 Bone Ash was overmatched by the 2013 RY Scion, which was the WOTN.
April 1, 2018 - I enjoyed this wine a great deal, but it does tip the ripeness scale just a tad. Splendid aromatics of blueberry, silt, dark berries, and loam. Noteworthy richness on the palate with a full spectrum of dark fruit and acidic interplay.
I think if this sheds some fat the score improves in 3-5 years.
February 17, 2018 - A hit of the night, tied with K Vineyards Syrah at 97. Took two hours to open, but really blossomed. Hard to pick out a taste or aroma, just beautiful on both counts. Smooth and full flavored with a very long finish.
September 24, 2017 - Yes it hard to believe WS gave this fine Cab. an 88, this juice is really good. Just no down side to this 2012 Cab. Spice, fruit,dark Chocolate and more. A 45 second finish is always good as well.
March 29, 2016 - It's hard to understand how this wonderful Cab. Received an 88 from WS and a 98 from RP. This wine started with a great nose and was wonderful on the Pallet. Over three days it just got better. I want more!
March 27, 2016 - This Cab is in complete balance with a fine 46 second finish. Soft, fruit forward and totally silky. Drink now.
