    October 24, 2021 - Definitely NOT past its prime. This was a splendid, complex, structured wine.

    July 24, 2021 - Really nice nose of dark berry, cassis, licorice, violets and cedar. Soft sweet tannins but still very big and rich fruit (too much?). Drank beautifully with a steak but a touch out of balance. long finish. Drink now and decant for an hour+

    March 28, 2021 - Rich and full, with a hint of tertiary nuances. Fully ready to drink, I would drink this sooner than later.

    July 15, 2020 - Decanted only to warm from cellar temp as was open right away. 2006, along with 2001, has been one of my favorite vintages for Napa as I've found them well balanced and age worthy, vs the fruit forward disappointing agers from 2002 and 2007. This wine displayed a combination of dark red fruit, plum and blackberry, with resolved tannins, medium minus acidity, and lovely balance and mouthfeel. This has aged quite nicely and really like where it is now. I wouldn't risk going too much longer with this as you may miss the sweet spot.
