    November 19, 2018 - tasted from coravin against the 2004 to see what a decade can do. Both 14.9 ABV with none noticeable. Definitely they make the wine to the house style since they are very similar. Boysenberry and other black fruits. Definitely cali but not a fruit only wine. The big takeaway is the 2013 has a much bigger mouth feel and more depth and glycerin. No doubt the better wine but I loved the style consistency if you want to buy off years.

    October 14, 2018 - Pretty powerful, felt a bit congested - definitely needs more time. The fruit had an overt grainy sweetness.

    Better on the 2nd day - more evolved and complete.

    September 9, 2018 - No nonsense Napa cab. Nothing heavy handed or over the top. Just a solid well made cab. Great value.

    August 3, 2018 - Has a cool climate feel, fruit is not over-ripe, more reserved for the vintage than most. Classy.
