    July 14, 2019 - A wonderful wine now, but will be fantastic in the future. Give it least 5 more years to see it at its best. Dark purple with a berry, licorice and minerals on the nose. Lovely palate with numerous balanced elements, but slightly on the big side. No tannin with cassis, cherry, licorice and a nice earthiness on the palate.

    April 20, 2019 - This was from a 375ml split. At first there was a slight raisiny aroma and taste that dissipated after some time in the glass. Once it opened up we were faced with a nice, well balanced blend. Do your self a favor and decant this carefully - mine had a considerable amount of sediment.

    February 22, 2019 - Classic Napa Cabernet, super fruit forward, bold body, nicely integrated, and decent finish. I liked it but didn't loved it. This followed a 2002 Insignia which is hard to stand up to that...

    December 23, 2018 - Medium dark red. Delicious warm cocoa on the nose with various berries. Delicious notes of sweet berry compote, bramble. It is actually still drinking a bit young.

    December 15, 2018 - Decanted several hours. A fruit forward Napa wine for sure but enough complexity to provide a nice experience. Hints of secondary flavors emerging in the background. Gorgeous nose.
