    February 28, 2019 - Needs some time to open up but great dark fruit with currant, cassis and mocha

    February 5, 2019 - Was better a year ago. Seems somewhat muted now. But still, lots of fruit, blackberry, walnut, dust. Round mouth feel. Very good, hoping it will open up in a few

    December 20, 2018 - Dynamite. Was firing on (nearly) all cylinders after a 60-minute decant and only got better with additional time. Cinnamon-dusted plums, Christmas spice cake, menthol, pencil shavings, and classic Rutherford dust. Elegant and exhibiting great finesse; this wine is really solid.

    December 6, 2018 - Really impressive. Decanted for an hour. This wine stands up to their reputation and I am amazed they can make a Napa cab that tastes so much better than others. Drinkable now with no overwhelming tannins but would love to try after 5 years more in the bottle. Beautiful deep red color with lots of fruit.

    December 2, 2018 - This rich and elegant Cabernet tastes like a wine that is building towards something fantastic - if only I had waited another year or two! As others have noted, this needs a good hour or two in order to open up, and it is likely to benefit from waiting until 2020. Since there is no better way to learn than by a bad example, though, here are my thoughts on the wine in its early stages.

    Dark red in color and full in body, the wine offers aromas of boysenberry, sawdust, cedar, and rosemary. Tastes of blackberry, dark chocolate, pine needles, and warm gravel, with a sweet and lingering finish. 14.9% alcohol. This is my first Mt. Etain, and I hope it won't be my last: the density and class of the wine are intriguing, and I hope I can taste one in its full glory, as this one is only approaching it. This found a second gear on the second day, with a level of integration that was lovely. 94+ for now, with obvious upside.
