October 16, 2019 - Moderately complex blue and red fruit with a hint of leather and young tobacco leaf. Aromatics were a little reticent.
Tannins were grippy and persistent.
Drink or Hold.
June 22, 2019 - Decanted for a three hours which was plenty of time...wine was ready to go with deep red fruit and some vanilla on the nose...finish was smooth and long with dark blue fruit...integrated tannins with just a hint left...paired very well with Flannery hangers...definitely suggest consuming if you've been holding on...wine is in a great spot.
May 20, 2019 - Rich and powerful cab. Not the most complex, but it's fun to drink. Ready now, I think it'll decline within a few more years.
May 10, 2019 - Dark fruit on the nose with a touch of pencil lead.
Dark ruby color with brown edges.
Delicious taste. More dark fruit and balanced tannins. Delicious and it continues to open up.
February 9, 2019 - Really enjoyed this wine with food like prosciutto, pasta, cheese and short ribs. Lively fruit flavors
November 22, 2018 - loosing some of the mid palate viscosity...time to drink....on the way down.....
November 20, 2018 - Terrific. Balanced with fruit and tannins playing nicely. Seems peak but will hang for a bit.
November 15, 2018 - one of the best cabs crm pride i have had to date. deep ruby red. took 45 mins to open and as solid for 3 hour dinner. smokey with old vine remnants and hints of chocolate
August 20, 2018 - Really nice mature Napa mountain fruit. A little spicy and super ripe. Could be more complex, but I don't think this has much to gain, I think it's at peak now. Drink soon- next 2-4 years for sure.
May 11, 2018 - Bordeaux profile is most evident now. Tertiary flavors are pronounced. I do think it is at its peak right now.
