    July 4, 2020 - Opaque purple turning violet at the rim with a reflective edge. The nose gives off ripe plums, dark fruits, raspberry and smoked earth. The palate is full-bodied with a velvety texture on medium plus acidity. Flavors of blackberry, black olives, dark chocolate, baking spices and vanilla form the core that leads to a long, supple finish with ultra refined tannins. Drink now until 2030.

    March 28, 2020 - Pruny, disappointing - maybe past prime, but I stored well since buying at retail in 2014, so perhaps had a challenging childhood, but to me I’m disappointed on this one.

    March 6, 2020 - 2010 Cabernet Vintage Night (Aretsky's Patroon - NYC): Opened, but not decanted for over an hour with my wine group. Out of the five of us, four had it as their second favorite. While it evolved and improved in the glass over a 2 hour dinner, I couldn't get past the slightly cooked and raisiney nose. Still it has a long finish, and was full bodied.

    September 24, 2019 - Improved after a few more years in the cellar and still has plenty of life in it. The tannins are still there too. A more restrained style; this tastes more like a Left Bank Bordeaux than most Napa cabs do.
