    August 30, 2021 - Such a drinkable wine...medium bodied well balanced simple and approachable...dark Napa cherry and pencil lead accents

    June 27, 2021 - Deep dark reddish-purple in color. Full, forward, & fragrant aromas of ripe fruit aromas of cherries, blackberries & plums with overtones of dusty/earthy & spice notes, herbs, minerals & a hint of oak/vanilla in the background. Full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, ripe fruit flavors of cherries, blackberries & plums with some spices, herbs, minerals & a hint of vanilla/oak. Lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting & extended airing, but should develop further with additional aging. Excellent QPR for a quality Napa Valley Cab when found at discount.

    June 20, 2021 - Something wrong with this bottle. Cork was wine stained on top. Wine unbalanced and overly acidic with unripe tannin.
    Couldn’t drink and had to pour out

    June 12, 2021 - Sourced from Stagecoach, Cardinale, Bosche et al this deep garnet colored Cabernet opens with a lot of rich dark fruit. My palate however was quickly overwhelmed by the pepper, which I normally enjoy but in this case seems a bit much.
