    March 14, 2020 - Again this is an awesome Cabernet. That said from a winemaker who swore not to make a Cabernet (supposedly) years ago. The wine is just so elegant with fresh squeezed blueberry fruit nose in combination with a touch of sulphur. In mouth the juice is forward and definitely blue fruits influenced which leads to its elegant and mild acidic mouthfeel. Overall medium weight with balanced tannins. Feels about ready right now to drink.

    December 24, 2019 - Really good Cal Cab, although interestingly similar to the Zinfandels.

    June 10, 2019 - Nice dark black cab with good nose and nice round but firm tannins. Just a pleasure to drink.

    February 3, 2019 - 14.9% abv. Deep ruby, moderate aromatics. Intense red and black fruit, leather and black pepper on the palate with a savory element. Excellent depth, good length. A strong tannic backbone argues for continued continued improvement. A suave and strong Napa mountain cab.

    February 13, 2018 - Such a wonderful wine. Blueberry dominant fruit both on the nose and in the mouth. More elegant than fruit forward, I would state this wine is medium weight with well balanced tannin versus fruit. Seems ready to drink now given its balance.
