    February 28, 2019 - Really nice 7 year old Napa Cab. Cassis fruit, sweet vanilla oak, baking spices, touches of pipe tobacco. Drink now - 2022+.

    September 15, 2018 - Upon opening, a high alcohol gust made us worried that it was too young and tight. 30 minutes of breathing and it was gone. Lots of fruit but not at all jammy to the taste. Nose remained slightly suggestive of cassis, but to the taste not at all. We enjoyed it with tenderloin beef kabobs on the grill at home, and the wine with the beef was divine. And, didn't overpower the veggies. My guess is this is going to keep getting better for some time. We have 6 more bottles and will space them by a year or so each.

    March 6, 2018 - P&P. Solid Napa Cab. Flavors of blueberry fruit, earth and vanilla. No alcohol apparent, but definite barrel notes. Enjoyable, especially on day 2. Drink now - 2022.

    December 6, 2016 - Great Foley Cab, drinking well now with a decant. Definitely opened up more over a few hours. Glad I have 2 more bottles!

    August 2, 2016 - A bit of bottle variation compared to the last bottle. More tannic and structured, less plush and fruity, but still delicious.
