    October 27, 2019 - 89/90 points...disappointing. Had this as the last wine of the night at an Italian steakhouse. Nothing special, nothing really wrong with it either. My least favorite of the night.

    October 5, 2019 - A dry and restrained wine without the huge fruit and density of some west coast cabs. Possibly a slightly muted stage and needs more time to cone out the other side. It’s lost some of the gravitas and vibrancy of its tasting a year or so ago. Still tannic and drinking pretty well.
    I tasted the 16 recently and it’s clear the biodynamic approach of Diana is coming to life in the bottle. The 16 was singing but needs 5 years plus really.
    I still have high hopes for this in 2 years or so. Expect to be scoring this higher soon.

    October 25, 2018 - Plum Market Luxury Tasting (Bad Hunter - Chicago IL): Tasting, brief note. Black plum and cherry throughout, more elegant aromatically, then fat on the palate. Good+ weight and length. Brooding slightly, better to cellar a few more years.

    October 9, 2018 - Nice nose
    Slight smoke & pepper and Cali fruit
    Good transitions across the palate
    Very nice tannin structure that carries fruit VERY well
    Good flavors cassis and graphite works well together
    Aging should be interesting
    Good minerals that play well with the fruit

    June 19, 2018 - Very pretty and open.

    Earthy, plum, graphite and pencil shavings. Similar to 15 and 13 yet more approachable.

    Still like the 15 and 13 better though.
