    December 27, 2017 - Well made, nicely balanced Cabernet with many years ahead of it. Red and black fruits, creme de cassis, leather and lead pencil. Everything falls into place but nothing makes you sit up and say wow. Perhaps age will deliver some surprises!

    August 28, 2016 - Solid ripe Napa Valley Cabernet with a very nice level of development but a generous hint of Brett in the background. Absolutely at or just slightly past its peak, further aging will bring up the Brett as the fruit fades. As it was a nice wine with some rare lamb.

    April 15, 2016 - Decanted 1hr, loads of sediment as expected, Bordeaux nose of cedar, cigar box, earth, truffles. The palate is full of left bank flavors, balanced currants, cassis, graphite, cedar, coffee, earth, not unlike that of a fine 3 or 4th growth from the same vintage, fine balance and complex as well. This Newton is drinking well now but can last for several more years in a cool, consistent environment.

    October 20, 2015 - This is good, better than expected. Fruity, spicy, some minerality, with plent of acidity. Blessedly, almost no new oak showing. On the simple end of things, but friendly and enjoyable with enough seriousness to keep it from heaviness. Ready now, should hold for a while though.

    Update: I froze the leftovers for a few days and I am drinking the second half of the bottle tonight... whoa, the new oak has come on strong! It's very caramel'n'wood now, which merits a few point downgrade in my book. Not sure what this means, but I much preferred things on day 1.
