    Decant 3h. Initially almost Malbec-like heady violets, not really that inviting but boy did this wine catch up. At the end there was boysenberries and black currant, really rather nice. Impressively, structure improved as well. And I am a sucker for the oak treatment. Not too much, just a bit warm and welcoming. Lovely. Probably has a long life ahead. Back in 5 years?

    July 6, 2021 - Nice nose. A bit of astringency that is a touch out of balance. Big, spicy. Good.

    April 14, 2021 - As good as it gets. Rich, elegant and balanced all at the same time. This wine will go on for years to come.

    April 14, 2021 - Exceptional! Dark core... Silky soft tannins. Killer aromatics and a long finish. This is about as good as 2015 Napa Cab gets. Really really great. I will go for many years but right now it is plush and delightful. Recommend decant

    February 6, 2021 - We have a few of these, thank goodness. Black and blue fruits still prominent, I think 2 years from now, like 2 years ago, will be better.
