    October 10, 2021 - Pretty consistent year-to-year and very good. A real value. The volume is turned up even a bit this vintage. On the nose and palate gobs of dark fruit. A little more structure with the 2013 and built to run for years. This is an annual purchase I don't regret. Excellent. 93

    October 9, 2021 - Definitely a more modern interpretation here & I day say "lush". Very palate focused - nose a bit muted. Big on black fruit, baking spice, vanillin. Excellent with a ribeye. 2h open on the counter then decanted.

    September 25, 2021 - Excellent cab, great value (we paid $51). Has nice structure, well integrated, but plenty of time left.

    September 16, 2021 - Inky black core with some hints of purplish/red fading around the edges. Nose is still fairly primary--stewed black fruits, plums, and a heavy dollop of vanilla and baking spices. Maybe some hints of tobacco and pepper starting to come through.

    Full bodied on the palate with moderate acidity. Persistent, firm tannins grip the gums. A bit of a chocolate note on the finish.

    Not a huge Napa cab drinker, so this didn't provide much interest to me. It's definitely more restrained than the stereotypical jammy fruit-bomb, but still a fairly modern interpretation. There's a lot of oak that needs a long time to integrate, but I don't think this will hold up long enough for that to happen. I suspect this will keep another 5-10 years, but don't really see it improving.

    August 17, 2021 - Drinking really well. Opaque. Lush dark fruit, not overpowering, pairs very well with food, very long finish.
