    June 9, 2019 - Pnp, drank over 4 hours. Beautiful Bordeaux nose and unlike a typical CA cab. Blackberry, blueberry, floral & earth, forest. Tannins show it can age well but also smooth enough that it’s drinkable now. Don’t agree with 2025 starting window nor the window until 2075. Enjoy now with food & decant, cellar worthy too until 2035.

    May 15, 2019 - This is a delicious Cabernet blend - blackberry, boysenberry, cedar, firm backbone, high viscosity, very consistent across the palate with a strong finish. Slow oxed for ~5 hours, sealed and finished next day. Consistent profile and quality from first glass to the last. Wonderful QPR.

    May 3, 2019 - Double yum. Spearmint, pencil shaving and cedar, with dark blackberry and black cherry fruit. Very fragrant and behaved well, but there’s some wood that still needs to be shed

    December 17, 2018 - A gorgeous wine that glad to have tried early. Yes this will be better in five years, but already drinks so well. Tried a small pour in PnP and let the rest decant for 90 minutes. The nose is already pretty nice but will open up in the future. Perfectly balanced on the palate, you get intense freshness, sweet cassis fruit, some herbs and minerals, and fine tannins that are really quite tame. Only 13% abv on the label, so no trace of heat at all. The wine is mostly primary and thus doesn’t yet merit a higher score, but this is lovely and worth owning to lay down or drink now. 92+

    November 16, 2018 - Stone fruit, cassis and moutian berry nose, showing a really nice purity and traditional style of cab fruit. Palate lean more towards the earth with graphite, cedar, bing cherry, and forest. Finish lingers with a nice Montain freshness. For the price this is a very solid representation of Cali cab and would hold its own against a growth bdx.
