    February 29, 2020 - Aged Napa Cab, stored properly since purchase, drinking very nicely. Plently of dark fruit still left. Nice balance with the fruit and structure and tannins. Not much experience with Napa CSs, but this is nicely done.

    June 30, 2018 - Still nice fruit and balance. Pretty acidic on opening but mellowed our over time.

    December 19, 2015 - Not a huge blockbuster Cab at this point, but rather a more restrained and nuanced old world style. Still some dark fruit with well integrated tannins and oak. A touch herbal in a pleasing sense that is typical of the vintage. Very good overall balance and structure. Probably not worth holding for much longer, as the remaining fruit may fade. 90-92 pts. PJP 2016.
