    April 19, 2019 - A massive gentle giant of a wine. Decanted through a Vinturi and given 2 hours of air, this bottle offered a nose of deep purple berry that foretold rich layers of black fruit, currant and hints of oak and tobacco. Well integrated tannins, almost seamless, and a good 10 years left until its peak. Buy all you can find.

    December 28, 2016 - Great initial flavor, concur with blueberry overtones. But slightly more tannic than I would have expected given other reviews and middle of projected life. Decanted half a bottle first night and stored under pump for second. Tannin never quite resolved. So I'll give this a couple more years before next bottle, but core flavors are excellent.

    September 25, 2016 - This was out of this world. So smooth and soft. Not heavy but full bodied. Massive blueberry pie a la mode on the finish that lasted for 45+ seconds. Needed about an hour or 2 to really get going. Some sediment but not much. I wish I had a case of this.

    October 29, 2015 - A huge and yet remarkably balanced wine, with a purity of fruit that is compelling. If you can somehow get to visit the winery, the views of the surrounding vineyards will come back to you every sip. If not, forget I raised the question. It was just a nice opportunity. What residents of Long Island can do is enjoy the food of Guy Reuge, formerly of Mirabelle, and a James Beard winner, at his new place Sandbar which puts Cold Spring Harbor on the map for more than DNA. Guy is as good as ever, or better, in this excellent albeit noisy restaurant. It's one of the pleasures of wine that you get to bring your best to a place where the food is an artwork. This wine is now drinkable, but there is enormous complexity and it is still very clearly young, probably has 20 years or more to evolve. Kudos to the Bryants, whose trio are a standout - this is a Napa first growth.
