    June 20, 2021 - Decanted 3 hours. Drinking young and has a lot of life left. Rich, dark, ripe berries and fruit. Tannins mellowed out with time and were very nice. Overall an excellent bottle of Napa Cabernet.

    March 29, 2021 - Impressive for sure. Price point is a little rich for what it is but a classic big napa cab.

    October 1, 2020 - Aromas noted were violets, blackberry, licorice and coffee. Smooth tannins after a 3-hour decant, but the bold black fruit persisted with dark chocolate, and a minerality that comes from mountain fruit. Delicious and lasting finish.

    June 18, 2020 - Drinking this tonight in honor of a deal with a similar code name that did not get done. The deal, like the bottle, fell short of potential. I suspect that I'd love this bottle 10 years from now when the secondary flavors emerge. Today, it's backward and mostly hints at potential, rather than delivering great pleasure on any dimension. If I had more bottles, I'd save them for at least five years, maybe ten, because the structure exists to go long.
