    June 30, 2021 - Big wine but remains well balanced with a long velvety fruit forward finish. A dense wine is drinking well now - remains to be seen if this improves or changes with age.

    June 20, 2021 - Still just as good as before- drinking with steak so even better!. Slight amount of sediment in the bottle. Strong blue fruit flavor- nose perked up after warming but still not that fragrant. Overall taste wins!!

    June 18, 2021 - Popped and poured. Blackish purple core. Notes of black cherry, cassis, hints of licorice, star anise and leather. Medium to full bodied, round texture, noticeable but ripe tannins, incredible concentration and depth. Long finish. What a wine!

    June 10, 2021 - PnP from magnum. Wonderful fruit and smooth finish. Very nice on day 2. Has a long life ahead. Everything you want in a Napa cab.
