    January 12, 2019 - Superb ..... but ..... don't pop and pour. This one needs to sit in the bottle for a few more years, or properly decant. It's been 2 hrs, and it's just getting going. It could use some more time, I'm impatient and a sip already hangs on for a good 45-60 sec

    December 27, 2018 - Very smooth and enjoyable Oakville Cabernet. A cut above Artemis, Fay paired well with Beef Wellington and was ready to drink after 30 mins bottle air. The wine had nice red and black fruit flavor complemented by good structure. We continue to enjoy the 2013 vintage from Napa.

    August 29, 2018 - Enjoyable and balanced can with nice earth / clay dust. A bit overpriced , in my opinion.

    June 16, 2017 - Very young wine, but showed lots of promise for improvement. Textbook napa notes of cassis, graphite and rich red fruits. Really nice texture in the mouth that revealed itself towards the end of the night. This wine just kept getting better and better with air. First time with this bottling and I was very impressed. Has a long life ahead of it and will improve.

    June 9, 2017 - Nicely structured and well made with early approachability. Unfortunately the fruit is in the background with kalamata olive brine and earth in the foreground. Sweet vanilla, oak, and syrupy cherry come secondary. Decanted 4 hours and never really blossomed.
