    July 6, 2020 - PNP- Consumed over two days. Takes a few hours to open up and was most enjoyable on day two. Very approachable for a 2015 so no downside on enjoying now. Very balanced acids and smooth tannin structure. Fruit is not overpowering considering the vintage.

    June 13, 2020 - Courtesy of R&D, popped and poured. Cassis, black currant and chocolate notes. Full-bodied with fine, sweet tannins. The palate mirrors the bouquet, with wonderful ripe black fruit and a lingering finish. There's a lushness to the wine that, for Domino and I both, pushes this ahead of the Derenoncourt for red of the night honors. Excellent.

    May 8, 2020 - Pure, lean and balanced. I think this will improve with some bottle age and integration of the wood.
    Tightly wound at this time. This bottling has a lot to give. Next time more air.
    Took this from cocktails (swiss cheese) thru dinner baked cod and then incredibly delicious with an almond coconut torte after dinner.

    May 8, 2020 - It’s fairly light and easy-going for a Napa Cab but lacks real depth and much character. There are ripe and somewhat jammy flavors of cassis and dark berries with a nice kick of Napa earthiness and a moderate finish with smooth tannins. I had this sandwiched in between an β€˜09 Calon-Segur and β€˜15 Saffredi La Pupille and those wines were much more interesting and kept drawing me back for another sip while this just laid in the glass.

    April 9, 2020 - Eisele truly is a grand cru vineyard of California. Featuring chocolate, licorice, tobacco leaf, mint, fig, and dark cherries. Finishes long with dusty tannins. Initially shy, this opened up after all day slow ox. It is hard to believe this is the second wine.
