    December 20, 2020 - Lots of energy for a '17 Napa Cab, one of the more vibrant ones I've had in this price range. Some floral aromas and something more that I can't quite place, possibly licorice as mentioned elsewhere. Fruit doesn't stand out with this wine but there's some raisiny grape and a hint of leather on the palate. Big, hot finish with moderate tannins and a lot of mouth tingling acidity on the 20+ second finish. Could score a few points higher if the fruits had come through more but nothing to complain about here especially given the vintage.

    September 26, 2020 - Floral aromas with blackberry and licorice on the nose. Black cherry and raspberry flavors with oak and grippy tannins and a medium length finish.

    August 17, 2020 - Very dark color, slightly fruit forward, very nice pleasing finish - should get even better over time.

    March 5, 2020 - First bottling and first taste for this one courtesy of HMC.....standard cab nose of briar and pencil but a bit muted on the pnp. Fruit is darker, black raspberry. Good weight, moderate tannins, decent depth and acidity. This also improved a point with air over 2 hours, maybe a 94 by the end.....while not a blockbuster it is a very, very nice wine especially so for the very challenged '17 vintage.
