    July 3, 2018 - Reddish brown color. Fruity vibrancy with a slight funk on the nose. On the tongue it’s youthful with tastes of raspberry and prunes.

    March 23, 2018 - Casual Friday Dinner with Friends (Booth One - Chicago, IL): Tasted side-by-side with the 70. I preferred the '71 as it delivered a bit more oomph and the tannins had a bit more of an edge. Having said that, both wines had a very similar profile that is classic old school Napa Cab. Loads of cedar, dried tobacco leaf and bell pepper add complexity.

    March 31, 2017 - At 46 years, its amazing what this nose offers. It tastes like an old barolo or amarone. Brownish light purple. Light-med body with short finish. But at 11.5% what do you expect? Fruit has really left this one. Good experience nonetheless. Well worth it.

    November 26, 2015 - The cork was solid, broke off about an 1/8 of an inch from the end. Wine was very soft, with muted notes of cherry and cigar box. Reminiscent of old Bordeaux past its prime.

    June 8, 2014 - Very mature nose (B+). Palate is quite soft with a slightly sour aftertaste. Both the fruit and tannins almost gone, but this has a very long finish that makes the drinking experience still enjoyable (B+/B++)
