    September 25, 2020 - Drink side by side with 1996 and 1997. Some crumbled corks among the 3, but all were drinking great. The order of enjoyment varied a bit; some preferred the 1995 and some the 1997 as the best of the group.

    October 6, 2019 - Drink any of these now
    From a decanter and drank over an evening at a restaurant. Nose was not stuffy cedar but bright with a aged plum fruit with a hint of eucalyptus. In the mouth was lighter, losing fruit but the fruit left worked till the finish where the acid took over. Not often you can have Napa old school wine for the price.

    January 31, 2019 - No formal notes. My last bottle of this, and man, will it be missed. Still crazy good. Nice blend of styles - certainly new world, but with more than a hint of Bordeaux elegance as well.

    September 22, 2017 - Nothing has changed my impressions of 3/1/14. This was an outstanding wine, still very nice nose and mouthfeel over a 2 hour dinner. Only 2 left in cellar.

    January 15, 2016 - Picked this up from WTSO recently. Fill level good. Cork came out ok, but was wet and soft and nearing end of life, but still working. Color showed age around the edges but still nice ruby. Surprising fresh fruit on the nose, turned a bit to faded fruit on taste. Tannins mostly gone but still acidic. Huge amount of sediment. All in all a really nice soft mature wine. Would probably have been better several years ago, but interesting and delicious now!
