    December 25, 2019 - Christmas Eve. Opening up some good ones tonight. This one included. Drank alongside a 2016 Becklyn regular cab that gave this one a run for it's money. But this just was a touch classier, smoother, and more nuanced in the end. a Great showing from both Becklyn cabs tonight.

    October 27, 2019 - Grabbed a bottle out of the cellar in the dark as I was leaving to evacuate the Kincade Fire. Popped it tonight with my Sin-in-law. Corked!

    Dripping with irony.

    October 5, 2019 - Tasted after several hours open. Dark bloody red. Nose is unctuous w/ cassis-chambord liqueur, woody herbs, blood, ripe berries, fall leaves, and a little bell pepper and cocoa. The palate is concentrated and rich, tons of chocolate-covered berries, low-medium acid, medium-plus tannin, very long, bags of bitter chocolate on the finish with a little spice like toasted cinnamon. Some minerality keeps it from cloying. Not for all palates but a bottle full of deliciousness. 14.5%, $170.

    August 31, 2019 - Deep opaque eggplant color. Nose of blueberry, blackberries, rose petal and cedar. Nice Napa fruit forward punch with cocoa and anise. Beautifully integrated dusty tannins and acidity. Full bodied. Really nice. Solid 94.

    April 14, 2019 - After watching Tiger win the Masters today, felt like I needed to follow it up with some good wine. Decided it would be a "Mike Smith Sunday Funday". Gave this about an hour and half of air - and WOW - killer good. I seem to like Mike's '15's better than the 14's. This is outstanding. Glad I have many more.
