    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.

    April 11, 2019 - Fragrant earth, raspberry, tobacco, blueberry, cedar, spice box and white flowers on the nose. The pallet is full of red berry fruit, which is nicely integrated and rides fairly high on the pallet. Good acid, but without significant depth or underlying structure. It's round, fairly plush and easy to drink. Medium level finish and goes down easy. This will probably be a nice drink for the next 3-5 years. Not sure it will age well much past then.
