March 14, 2021 - Hold remaining 5+
August 23, 2020 - Solid napa cab, right down the middle. Drinking well.
July 18, 2020 - 375ml was going to port
July 11, 2020 - Some chocolate, spotted beebalm, and balsamic along with the usual cab suspects, and just enough acidity and minerality to keep the natty wine pitchforks at bay
June 18, 2020 - Great tannins, good nose that got worse on warming. After warming fruit all disappeared, tart. Nose changed to a little off putting but still good. May get better with time but not sure. Still good.
April 25, 2020 - A lovely Cab, mature and drinking well. Not much to say about it, just a really good Napa Cab with all the right stuff.
11/11/20 another bottle, same score and same comment
October 12, 2019 - Starting to drink nicely. Much better than a year ago. Fruit coming out and it’s opening up. Delicious.
June 1, 2019 - Much more approachable than the Hares 13. Still with firm oak but more toasted. Sweet black and red fruit with a touch of purple. Black pepper to the finish. Great structure and could probably go another 15 or so years. Really impressed by this wine.
November 17, 2018 - Hold.
September 7, 2018 - Pleasant bouquet of herbal notes and leather. Black cherry, cassis, spices. Complex and multi-level. A bit hot but thoroughly enjoyable. A longer decant or more aging would make it even better. Just beginning its life.
