    June 1, 2019 - Quite good. Last bottle in our cellar, but if you have more, I suggest not waiting much longer to drink.

    April 27, 2019 - This never reached the heights that I was expecting. A little disjointed at first, transitioning into mildly satin like texture with notes of blackberry, plum, currants, and spice, Tannins are well integrated. Listen to the others that recommend a 2 hour decant. Tasted over 3 hours, and the last hour was the best.

    October 7, 2018 - Big but balanced and nuanced with sweet silky tannins. Dark purple hue, nose of concord grapes, black currant and sweet oak. After an hour in the decanter, everything comes together. Fantastic.

    July 18, 2018 - Quite dark. Classic nose of creme de cassis, charred wood, spice and mocha java. Quite full bodied and rich with zingy acidity on the end. Substantial, but smooth and caressing tannins. Classic Napa Valley, this is nearing full maturity, but not quite there yet! Could use a bit more authority and intensity on the palate. Probabaly best in another 2-4 years and will last 10+. Drink 2020-2028+ 92
