    November 27, 2020 - End Nov Wine Night @ GWC!: Red fruits, leather, tobacco, slight funk. Was in two minds whether this was an Old or New World cab. Very well made. Glad to see that it is a Diamond Creek as I have been wanting to try this. In its drinking window now - open up! One of my fav for the night.

    July 15, 2020 - Napa Tasting (Bistro Cocotte, Haberfield): A little funky and farty initially but this blew off to show ripe plums, a little vanilla and cream, sweet spices and, with time, cassis and and blackcurrant. Medium plus intensity acidity (adjusted or possibly a smidge of VA?), tight, chalky textured tannins close down the palate beating down some muted black and red currant fruit. Bit out of whack for me.

    November 10, 2019 - Slight cork taint but this is classic '90's Cab. The big fruit for which they are famous has largely mellowed away, leaving behind tertiary notes of leather backed by subtle fruit and relatively soft structure of tannin and acidity. This is by far and away not the greatest mid-90's Cali Cab I've experienced (try Monte Bello '96) - but very nice nonetheless.

    June 24, 2019 - Opened last Saturday with small group at the wine club. Bottle was consumed relatively fast as it was well received. Fruit was a bit muted but nice. Alcohol came in around 12.5%. It's fun when one of these older wines bought on auction works out.

    March 2, 2019 - Q1 - 2019 Tasting - 1995 Vintage Napa Valley (NYC): 2nd/16 wines tasted double blind. Color here is more faded and much browner than wine #1. On the palate this tastes faded and dusty to me - past its prime - not a lot of fruit but not much else either. I suspect the bottle was poorly stored.
