    February 15, 2019 - Tasted at a wine dinner.
    Delicious; notes of plum with a savory mint side. Color was still a deep purple; I would have expected greater bricking for a 12 year old wine.
    People talk about "old school Napa cab."
    This fits the bill.

    July 29, 2018 - My last bottle of this beauty. Still some dark fruit left but mostly sweet integrated oak and tannins, a touch of sour cherry, a little earth. Classic.

    August 20, 2017 - Lovely old Napa Cab, showing well after 90-minute decant.

    June 19, 2017 - Give this a good decant. It opens up into a beautiful, youthful classic Cali Cab. It's drinking at its aged peak with a gorgeous balance of secondary fruit, acid, oak, and leather.

    February 11, 2017 - This bottle was drinking fabulously. Tasting note from memory. In storage since release, very balanced, with nice spice box flavors good depth and weight and medium length finish. Improved over an hour but still great from open. I wish I had more, classic aged Napa valley Cabernet.
