    September 9, 2021 - First M Etain and it made a really positive impression. Smooth and silky with a perfectly clean nose of cassis and a fullness on the palate that never got heavy at all. Judicious oak is well balanced with pure fruit, earth, and perfect acidity that really delivers through the lengthy finish. It's an elegant and well made Napa blend that hits all the right notes for me as I sip into the evening.

    Decanted 4 hours but really it was drinking well after 30 minutes or so. The pure fruit and Rutherford dust are fully there right away at PnP.

    August 26, 2021 - Blind tasting. No secret here. Everyone guessed Napa Cab except one left bank bordeaux. Good soil in an otherwise classic profile. Nice cassis fruit with some soil and oak. Very full bodied and could stand another 5 years in the cellar to evolve more. Needs 2-3 hours in decanter for it to start singing.

    December 10, 2020 - Decanted about 45 minutes before dinner. First glass the most open with noticeable fruit nose and palate of red fruit, blue fruit, volcanic soil and chocolate with a medium finish. Second glass a little less hedonistic and some classier notes. Third glass grainy tannins emerged and fruit subsided to bell pepper. Very nicely done not the best Cab Merlot blend of all time but easy to drink if still a bit less polished than a 96-98 wine (but good QPR).

    June 20, 2020 - One of my favorites, and certainly didn't disappoint in this vintage! Dark red and some black fruit; Rutherford Dust; what's not to love? Gave it a little time to breathe (probably 90 minutes) and it was rocking.
