    September 17, 2017 - Still in great shape! Black cherry, good acidity, a bit of earth. Excellent!

    February 4, 2017 - I found it a little porty at first, but with air, dark fruit and licorice came out. I believe it is a characteristic of the vintage - low acidity and ripe fruit, making it seem heavier than I like. I remain a fan of Rafanelli, but this particular one was not my favorite.

    December 26, 2015 - Delicious. Deep black cherry flavors with a bit of earth, black currant and oak. One of the best cabs tasted this year.

    March 20, 2015 - Great Cab. Near perfect balance of bell pepper, restrained hint of oak and good balancing tannin. What I want out of a cab. Prior reviews are spot on, about how good this wine is. And it is at a perfect point now. Perfect with a charcoal grilled ribeye!

    March 13, 2015 - Mature cab, gentle tannin, fine aroma. Decanted with aerator 1/2 hour before BBQ steak was ready. Ah...
