    May 14, 2020 - Drinking great. Full, complex body with rich dark fruit flavors. Very smooth tannins. Much smoother and more restrained than the vintages over the past 5 years. A great red blend. Long, silky finish.

    November 24, 2019 - Still very rich, extracted, smooth but no sign of fatigue. Very enjoyable from the first pour. Not particularly subtle but if you’re in the mood for a big powerhouse this does nicely.

    May 7, 2018 - Decanted 15 minutes. Still opened up nicely. Maybe a bit past its prime, but still enjoyable.

    October 6, 2017 - Still drinking very well. Youthful and fruit forward. Decanted one hour. Slight sediment. Blueberry and blackberry.

    June 30, 2017 - This was surprisingly very good wine. Classic Napa with lots of jam and nose of dark black fruits, chocolate, graphite and violets. Medium finish, very satisfying to the whole group. We quickly went through two bottle of this wine before dinner.
