    April 4, 2019 - Nice cab, still young... I could see it being quite good in 2-3 years, but as of now it's not memorable.

    February 7, 2019 - Wonderful mountain fruit with plenty of character right from the pop n' pour. Classic cab flavors. Primarily red but some black/blue fruit, perfect tannins and a modicum of wood. The oak really gives the wine a bit of a rustic flavor. This is a very nice Cali cab! Plenty of years left ahead for this beauty!

    January 17, 2019 - Popped and poured through a powered aerator. Deep opaque purple in color. Prominent nose nose of black cherry, blackberries, pine and graphite. Tastes is similar but with notes of pepper and cedar. Full body and nice balance of tannins and acidity. Blend of 75.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot, and 2.5% Malbec.

    December 21, 2018 - Big supple black and blue fruit on this one. Tannins actually came out after a 1 hour decant. You could definitely enjoy this now with steak. Will be better in 5 years but enjoyable now. No finesse. Just big fruit and great flavor.
