    September 27, 2021 - Extraordinary aged Napa Cab here, even better than expected. Fully mature and a showy, secondary nose of truffles, forest floor, cedar, and leather. Same thing on the palate, tons of savory notes of soy, mushrooms, tea and cassis. Would buy again for sure and nice QPR at $200/750ml

    May 23, 2021 - Decant for an hour. Nose was classic cali...think it would have evolved for hours. This wine is still young and vibrant.

    March 18, 2021 - Just a beautiful wine, very Bordeaux in style, which is what Eisele is known for. This 30+ year wine is just a stunner. Mild nose of blackberry, cassis, vanilla, and cedar. Subtle, yet full of depth. Notes of rose petals, cigar box and a long, elegant finish.

    November 23, 2020 - Delicious with hints of graphite swimming in plums and stewed cherries. Cedar is poking out a bit now and the wine declined after time in the glass. Long finish that is now slightly out of balance and showing fatigue. I would say this is in decline and better today than tomorrow. Drink

    October 10, 2020 - Decanted and poured. Color is an orange-y purple to almost yellow at the edge. Robust old-world nose of earthy, briny elements, some red and black fruit, a touch of crushed rock. Palate is elegant and complex, well-integrated, featuring red fruit, black olive, clay dust, a hint of graphite, some black fruit, a green note...smooth mouth feel, full-bodied, pleasant tannic aspect. This was my second bottle this year, similar notes. Very left-bank Bordeaux, doesn't surprise me Pinault bought it. This is a wonderful, elegant wine, probably well into the drinking window, but still outstanding.
