    March 8, 2020 - This bottle is solid, tasty and very enjoyable six month later. Reddish purple color, with an appealing bouquet, nice depth, concentration and nice, ripe fruit that more of a darker profile. a medium/ full bodied wine consisting of dark berry, dark cherry, plum, and currants and ceder aromas. Although out of the gate I rated this wine higher, it is still an excellent wine that I would score 94+ Points.

    November 27, 2019 - Solid, down the middle napa cab. Very ripe, perhaps a bit too sweet and forward, but certainly good.

    November 3, 2019 - This bottle wasn’t quite as good as Fortunas in the past. Overly sweet on day 1, much better 24 hours later. Tart black cherry, a hint of vanilla and almost a cola flavor... surprisingly acidic. Seems a little off compared to past bottles. Still a very enjoyable wine.

    October 12, 2019 - Outstanding wine - great QPR. Last of 3 bottles. In a great drinking window.

    October 2, 2019 - Drinking really nicely now but should continue to age nicely for next 5-10 years. Nice balance between fruit, tannins and acidity. Velvety mid palate.
