    August 15, 2020 - One whiff and you know it’s going to be a pleasure to taste. Dark fruit but smooth and elegant. Great cab from a historic winery. Paired well with grilled flatiron steak after a teaser with aged cheddar. This vintage is ready and able.

    August 1, 2020 - Opaque ruby purple color turning violet at the rim with a transparent edge. The legs indicate high viscosity and confirmed by the label at 14.9%. The nose is very ripe and on high octane with notes of blueberry, vanilla, and blue flowers. The palate is full-bodied, creamy with a velvety texture. There’s medium minus acidity that isn’t able to carry the ripeness of the fruits through. Flavors of dark cherry, blueberry compote, dark chocolate form the core. Finishes long and smooth. Drink now until 2030.

    June 5, 2020 - Beautiful and powerful crowd pleaser. Nose outstanding. Balance of minerals, fruit tobacco. Lingering finish.
    New world Bordeaux. Better in another year, but not for long aging based on my experience with this winemaker.

    April 18, 2020 - I found it a little acidic for my tastes. Some more time in the bottle may help it balance out. A very earthy flavor to it. Tasted better as it opened up.

    March 14, 2020 - Nice wine that may still be a little young. Slightly tannic, great depth.
