February 21, 2021 - surprisingly good , holding up well with good fruit and a smooth finish
September 3, 2019 - PnP, great showing!!
December 22, 2018 - From Magnum.
Was thrilled to see that this bottle held up phenomenally. Still plenty of primary fruit along with some mature cedar and tobacco. Very much a napa cab, though not of the high alcohol viscous type more common today. Really a pleasure to drink. All that said, air wasn't its friend, and after two hours open it started a slow decline towards simplicity (though perhaps it was me and not the wine?!?).
July 15, 2018 - My last bottle. Probably on downside of peak but still delicious classic Napa Cab.
April 20, 2018 - Past it’s prime
December 5, 2017 - This bottle appeared slightly oxidized and didn't show as well as the others.
August 19, 2017 - Showing beautifully after 90-minute decant.
July 31, 2017 - Consistent with previous notes.
June 9, 2017 - This bottle showed beautifully. Paired with 2009 Futo OV to contrast old and new Napa. Classic with remaining primary fruit after 20 years.
June 3, 2017 - Drinkable but sightly flawed
