    February 23, 2022 - Decanted for sediment. Classic Napa cab nose of cassis, black currant, a bit of sweet oak spice, cedar cigar box and maybe a touch of savory herbs. Similar flavors on the palate with a bit of black cherry mixed in. Medium to medium+ acid, sweet medium tannin and not a lot of oak on the palate, so a bit more classically styled cabernet. Perhaps a bit shorter on the finish than other vintages but overall, a very enjoyable bottle of cab. Just not a show stopper.

    October 29, 2020 - Very good Napa cab. Not as long as I expected given age, but very enjoyable. I don’t know that it would steal the show, which in a way is nice. PIred with some hard cheeses and goat cheese too. Can’t imagine anyone not liking this, it’s was classic Napa cab

    October 3, 2020 - Good acidity. Not a tannin fruit bomb. More complexity. Light cherry, cocoa and leather on the nose.
