    October 15, 2021 - This is my 8th bottle from this vintage and this was the best to date. Mike Smith killed it in 2015 with all of his wines (Scarlett, Myriad, Quivet, and Becklyn). Hard to beat this QPR

    August 19, 2021 - Fantastic, indeed, Yack Man! It has been two years since the last bottle and this 2015 is hitting it's stride. Lovely bottle all the way around with beautiful color and aroma. Gorgeous sweet fruit, with a long finish. Paired perfectly with grilled filet mignon.

    July 4, 2021 - The good news, his was a fantastic vintage for the Scarlett brand. The bad news, there’s only 4 bottles in the cellar. The wine opens with dark ripe fruit and floral aromas. On the palate, dark fruits composed of perfectly ripened black cherry and dark berry fruits, cassis, a hint of sweet tobacco and some cedar and leather notes. This is a bold, dark crimson colored wine with smooth tannins, and good extraction. The Reserve has more depth and nuance, but the baby brother is ‘not chopped liver’ this is a really good wine for those of us who enjoy this, what some might call - New world style Napa Cab.

    March 2, 2021 - Day 1: Opened and a quick taste - not much nose, then a hit of sweet red fruit, then closed up. Let stand 1 hr in glass. Still not much nose and the sweet red fruit is gone, replaced by dark reddish fruit through a longish finish. Medium weight and in a "modern" style. Tasty, but lacking the "old world" signature cab profile. Taste-wise, this almost could have been the Bordeaux-style 2014 Turley Juvenille Zin I had the other night, with the not-particularly-distincitive dark reddish fruit profile. Maybe it needs more time; not what I was expecting.
    Day 2: A bit softer, but not any appreciable change: dark reddish fruit throughout and fairly monotone. Tasty, but I'm looking for some actual cab nose/taste and it isn't here - at least yet. Or maybe that's the Mike Smith style?
