    November 14, 2019 - Double blind Cab based wine tasting (Eddie V's - Tysons Corner, VA): Initially similar to the second wine. Very primary expressive nose displaying ripe black fruit, black cherry, blackberry jam, blueberry pie, licorice, lead pencil, sweet spices and crushed rocks. Very good concentration, very finely layered ripe blue fruit, silky, slightly lean and polished, bright acidity, good mineral presence, fine tannins and a long ripe black fruit driven finish with lead pencil and licorice at the end. Similar to the second wine, lacks concentration especially compare to the first wine.

    November 14, 2019 - Served double blind, nice red and blue fruits, sweet oak, cinnamon, five spice, good balance but lacked the mid palate of the better wines in the flight.

    November 3, 2019 - I let this breath in bottle for 3-4 hours. That softened it, but I don't think it improved it.
    Cassis, blackberry etc. Nice Napa cab at a relative QPR

    September 7, 2019 - Wow what a great value from Napa. After 2 hrs the nose was intoxicating. Wish I had bought more.

    August 10, 2019 - Pop and pour, consumed over 3 hours. Nose: Medium-plus expressiveness, red fruit overtones - raspberry and cranberry, dark fruit undertones - blackberry, shoe polish, sweet tobacco, and lavender. Palate: Medium-full bodied, spicy red and dark fruit attack, spice driven mid-palate lift, blueberry and tobacco notes in the back-end, flavors appear to be just scratching the surface, seems dense and powerful - needs time. Finish: Lengthy 45-60 seconds dominated by spicy dark fruit, tobacco, and earthy notes. Wow, this is enjoyable now but screams potential greatness in the coming years.
