    August 29, 2020 - Beautiful bottle of Old World/Old School Napa Valley Cabernet. Cherry, dark fruits, spice and integrated oak all play well here. There is still tannic grip on this medium weighted wine. I think it is in a good window now, but could see improvement over the next several years.

    Day two, and the tannins have settled down. Continues to drink very well.

    June 15, 2020 - Excellent wine with great balance of fruit, minerality and wood..
    Noticeable oak on the nose followed by a nice blend of fruit
    Herbs and minerality...more old world style than new...

    September 15, 2019 - Nice aroma with cassis and some wet stone note...
    Loads of blackberry, leather, spice, wrapped in still very firm drying tannins...think it needs a few more years but it’s got great potential.
    Day 2...nose is more open and complex..now blackberry and ripe bing cherry and all previous flavors... still drying tannins...going to be stellar!
    Think in time it’s 95/96...

    January 11, 2019 - Maybe still a trifle too much oak/sweet, but in a lovely balanced place. Shows the vibrancy and depth of the year well.

    December 27, 2016 - Dark fruit and graphite; nice balance; full bodied and an excellent wine for the money. I put this just below the 3 figure wines that Arietta offers; love them too, but this is wonderful stuff.
