    April 17, 2019 - Delish on P&P. Definitely in the new world spectrum but satisfies the old world itch. Mature dark fruits, smoke, leather and a bit of mineral and earth. This actually seems like it might improve with a few more years sideways, glad to have 1 more.

    July 1, 2018 - This is tasting very nice now and has several more years to go. It has a balanced portfolio between rich fruit and nice tanins, with overtones of chalk and earth.

    August 28, 2017 - This was my first bottle of this wine and it was hitting on all cylinders. Delicious fruit and secondary flavors of leather, licorice and earth. Excellent balance with well integrated tannin. I have one more bottle and will drink it in the next year or two. Wish I had more to follow its development longer.

    August 18, 2017 - Wedding Week; 8/16/2017-8/20/2017 (Fremont, CA): Briefer than usual impressions: This flipped from my last experience, where I liked the Claret better than the Cabernet Sauvignon. This time there was a ton of vanilla American Oak, almost overwhelming. The Cabernet Sauvignon was easier to drink. 85

    July 30, 2017 - What a great bottle of wine. Well balanced, smooth, full flavor with a lovely finish. Last bottle, so sad.
