    May 6, 2021 - Decanted and starting drinking at 45 min -- seemed heavy at the start but I really grew to like it as I noticed the nuance. Brawny.
    Blackberry, black pepper, high spice, currant. Dry finish.

    April 18, 2021 - I'm with MattShank on this, enjoyable now and I can't imagine this further improving. Plenty of dark fruit, oak, spice. Tannins are in the background. Good length on the finish.

    March 25, 2021 - 2 1/2 hour slow ox. Nose: Lots of dusty aromas contrasting the black fruit. Palate: Still dark fruited with soft tannins and a lengthy finish. Last bottle will be drunk up within the next year as this is now in an ideal place and I don’t see more upside. 91+ points.

    March 27, 2020 - Good stuff- softened tannins over the last couple of years and now offers both good red berry fruit and some leather.

    August 25, 2019 - Lovely and classic Napa Cab. One hour decant and good to go.
