    March 6, 2022 - Drank after the 2016. Aging so gracefully. To be sure this is super rich but it has mellowed so nicely with age.

    December 18, 2021 - Vinegar and not drinkable. Very disappointed as cellared in perfect conditions all these years. And I love my pahlmeyer

    October 9, 2021 - Big, bold - and boring. Primarily red cherry juice. Fortunately it got a little more interesting as it breathed. Fully mature. Decent tannins and acidity. Anonymous “good” Napa cab, enjoyed by others more than me.

    August 21, 2021 - A bit disappointing. This is a massive wine with incredible concentrated dark fruit flavors but its a bit monolithic and simple. Perhaps not ready?
