    December 29, 2020 - 8/10 - On the dry side. Very good but not great

    October 25, 2020 - Gravely, earthy, savory, dark fruits. Tannin and acidity are balance. Nice medium plus finish.

    October 24, 2020 - A tarot reading of sorts. Color and Clarity - The King of Cups, beautiful in the glass - 5. Nose - The Hermit, refusing to come out - 11. Palate - The Emperor, Dominant tannins providing protection and stability - 17. Overall experience - The High Priestess, yet to reveal her secrets - 7.

    This is a wine shrouded in mystery and will require 3-4 years to emerge from behind a wall of tannins. I suspect that a lovely and elegant wine is in here, but at age 7 it's not even close to knowing it's own fortune. 88-92.

    August 29, 2020 - Other comments are spot on. It’s a nice and enjoyable wine that's easy to drink on its own or with food; on the dry side, with muted fruit. A cross between respectable and a memorable; nothing screams out that you need to get more of this, but I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment if someone popped a second bottle.

    August 22, 2020 - There are a lot of things to like here. Our overall impression of this wine is that it is a much leaner style of Napa cabernet - it does not hit you with a sense of powerful fruit. The flavors are all fo those that have been mentioned in other CT notes. @MIKE410 - totally understand the "not as sweet" comment; @LVEPICURE - totally understand the notion of structure in this wine, it does present as very well built, we did not get a sense of "lush;" @JOSCH48 - "without being jammy (Caymus)" Oh so true! and at $34 a bottle, you won! @JDAVIS243 - "there’s a lot of finesse here, but just a bit too restrained for my taste." That was our sense as well.

    Having said all that, I suspect it will continue to develop and improve. But I only had the one bottle, so...
