June 14, 2019 - Did not decant, which is required at this time. Still maturing, will be much better in 2 years. Shows promise.
July 29, 2018 - 93
May 19, 2018 - Pretty good fruit and spice but this lacks focus. There's a moderate amount of medium grain tannins which are soft and unobtrusive, but provide little structure and are ultimately just kind of there. It's okay for what it is, and works reasonably well with a steak, but the loosely knit finish left me wanting. I don't drink much Napa cab anymore so maybe my perception is skewed.
April 1, 2018 - Prior notes apply but the tannins are not going anywhere and without the same fruit they are becoming less charming. I will be drinking my remaining bottles in the short term.
February 18, 2018 - Same deal as before: lucious chocolate and blue fruit. Really nice as an after dinner wine with some high end single varietal chocolates.
October 18, 2017 - Blackberries and sweet oak on nose
Briary fruit with touch of acid
Impression is sweet ripe fruit
Tannins prominent and need a little time to integrate
Agree good potential to age a few more years
Ps agree with Babik - cocoa nibs on the finish
May 7, 2017 - Decanted 2hr; minimal sediment. Prior notes apply but also thick mouthfeel with lucious blueberry sauce and cocoa nibs on the finish. Excellent QPR.
November 29, 2016 - Should have read my prior not before opening! Nice fruit, tannins, and acidity. This will go the distance. Great now on PNP.
November 5, 2016 - PNP. Dusty and delicious! Ripe thick fruits and bit of oak and leather on nose. Full bodied with plenty of dusty tannin. I wouldn't touch this for another year.
Vac capped overnight and decanted an hour the next day, and was very reminiscent of 13 Caymus cab on the nose, but lot less $$.
