    April 14, 2022 - Need some time in the glass. Lovely texture but lacked depth and boldness. Moderate cherry fruit on the palate, but seemed one dimensional. Drink up as it’s fading.

    November 27, 2021 - 1hr+ decant. Wine really changed through the course of the night. Went from floral to port to tannic. Started out nice then evolved to complex then to strange and then went downhill. I’d drink soon and be careful of decanting too long. I was at 94 and then dropped to 91, so 92.5 and rounding up :)

    April 28, 2017 - Probably a bit young. Nice fruit, but probably needed a lot more air. Solid Cab Franc and paired nicely with our meal.

    January 21, 2017 - Leftovers:)....sometimes I hate when I'm right! Air did amazing things for this baby. After 22hrs the fruit was popping, it was much bolder, but still silky smooth. Upgrading my score substantially!

    January 20, 2017 - Memories from our '15 Napa trip! Light and decent fruit, but definitely needs some air. A little tart for a cab franc, but love the low OH and how easy it drinks. Cathy knows what she is doing! Try it!
