    January 31, 2023 - Mighty fine Cabernet. Full on the nose, with eucalyptus, woodsmoke, dark berries and cocoa. Wonderful on the palate, feeling light and fairly fresh but with immense flavour intensity - espresso and blackcurrant coulis, mmm. Ridiculously long finish, too. Yes.

    October 23, 2022 - Excellent terroir-driven Cab. Cathy makes such good wine, expressing what Napa is capable of, but which is too infrequently realized. Well integrated with some mint and floral notes on entry, cherry kirsch, blackberry and other dark fruit mid-palate, and orange bitters, cardamom and a hint of licorice on the finish, with moderate acidity and polished tannins that have just a nice bit of grip. In an excellent drinking window.

    September 17, 2022 - Consistent notes. Riper than I expected. But beautiful. No etoh. Tannins nearly resolved but expect to hold for years. Acid in balance. Fruit clean and finish long.

    April 1, 2022 - By Coravin at The Kitchen Table, London.
    Has the feeling of what we call perfect yet boring . It is a cool climate wine , with perfectly mature fruit and al around smooth and silky. But the perfection in its grape selection robs this of an exciting and complex side too. 91

braised beef shortribs, Thanksgiving dinner at Tracie & Mitch's. This was our third and last bottle. This followed Duckhorn 3 Palms Merlot (incredible), then Chateau Dez Oremes left bank Bordeaux.
