    April 26, 2023 - Tasted in a flight of four 2018 wines including three moderately priced Napa Cabs (all <$75) and one right bank blend from WA. This was clearly the weakest link. Decent red fruit up front with faint spice notes but thin on the palate seemingly a bit diluted and finished with a faint but evident green note. Very mild tannin at this point, likely saw little if any new oak. It was a little better on day 2, clearly fading on day 3. Drink now to 1-2 years.

    April 12, 2023 - Not what I was expecting for a $40 bottle of Napa Cab. There are many other bottles option for less that are exceedingly better. Not much going on here with this wine. Nothing impressive. Very forgettable.

    February 15, 2023 - Some fruit here, but pretty restrained and hidden by some leather, eucalyptus/menthol. High acidity and tannins which haven't really smoothed out yet, even a couple hours after opening. Average to below for a Napa-style cab.

    May 28, 2022 - Just enough going on here to squeak over the line into decent value territory. Needs considerable time to reveal its modest virtues.

    April 13, 2022 - Big nose of cherries and leather, but very one dimensional and fruit forward. Lacks tannins and structure.
