    March 30, 2020 - Got about 2.5 hours of air before we tried alongside a 2016 Greer. The Greer was preferred, and we finished it off on Night 1. Left probably 2/3 of this bottle for Night 2.

    It opened up maybe a tick more, but still a glycerol characteristic that I didn't love. Lots of blueberry. Good stuff that I find very characteristic of the Calistoga AVA - which in all honesty is not my favorite AVA in the Napa valley. Again, still very good stuff, just not my preferred profile overall.

    December 26, 2019 - Shared among family at our annual Xmas eve dinner. Once again this wine delivered, taking WOTN in the lineup- 2013 Kathryn Hall, 2016 Memento Mori Dr. Crane and 2006 Caymus. Similar notes as stated below. In all honesty, my palate was totally fatigued this evening as all the wine and sugary foods over the last couple weeks had taken its toll. By Christmas evening, all I wanted was a beer.

    December 8, 2019 - Very un-exciting and a let down with all the hype. A wanna-be cab that fell short. Very disappointed considering the price. Other vintages have been far better.

    October 11, 2019 - Big wine. Unrestrained. Long finish. In the same style as a lot of the Bevan Cellars wine. Nicely polished. Left me wanting a little more sophistication
