    April 15, 2019 - When first opened this wine has a beautiful spice and floral nose. This wine is still very dark, coats the glass. I find the 2013's to be very tannic and concentrated. This wine is JUST beginning to open up. Medium bodied it has tannins that are moderate, but definitely there. The finish is long on the palate, finishing with varnish notes. Black fruits are present but not prominent. Stagecoach fruit at this price is simply not found.

    September 2, 2018 - Not bad at all. First half had nice aroma and taste. Big, but restrained with nice balance, medium acidity and smooth tannins. Very nice.

    Second half (stored in a cool environment, but just stuck the cork back in) was a different tale completely. Aroma was still there, but the taste just got a bit musty. Still decent, but was definitely not what it was the first night.

    April 15, 2018 - This wine is still dark, nice bouquet. This bottle was not quite as deep as the others in flavors. It was nice, good body. The other bottles had more floral aromas....

    April 12, 2018 - Since 8/8/2017 note this has come together well, and while I would encourage decanting ahead of time versus pop and pour, this is drinking quite well now. Very much Napa Cab grape juice. Nice for the price. Quite a fine wine, excellent effort Cam & Co!

    August 8, 2017 - I have to agree with the 1/13/17 review. Was not expecting what we found. The first night, we gave it an 89, got home too late and did not decant enough. Left about 8 oz and on the second night, WOW! This wine is NOT a pop and pour, needs air, decanting and it is as good as many Napa Cabs priced at $50 or thereabouts. Was medium-bodied, good finish, 100% varietally correct for a Napa Cab. Should drink well into 2018 but NEEDS AIR!
