    July 23, 2021 - Tannins are overbearing this time. Decanted four hours. Wouldn't open another bottle for at least three years.

    April 18, 2021 - Quite serious and brooding for a Sonoma cab, the alcohol is a little pronounced. I like the deep and powerful profile to this wine. Drinking well now but may improve with more time. Might be worth decanting. 92+

    October 31, 2020 - Really good after three hour decant. Dark berry, plum and some smoke flavors. Nicely integrated tannins. Plenty of time remaining.

    August 8, 2020 - Actually drinking quite well right now, notwithstanding comments stating tannins are too present. Very nice nose with cassis, smokey oak, bit of cocoa and some earthiness. Not a fruit bomb, rather quite elegant. Would purhcase again but not sure of availability at the price previously purchased. Fortunately, have a couple more bottles in the cellar.

    May 25, 2020 - Very perfumed nose evident while pouring. This wine was much more than I expected. I expected a nice everyday Cal Cab to drink with dinner. Had a lot more going for it. The cedar notes were predominant in this wine. Deep dark aubergine colored wine. The fruit was intense and worked well with the equally powerful tannins. I obviously opened this one up too young. Another 5 years would have been best.
