    February 1, 2021 - Boysenberry, menthol, and a hint of smoked meat on the nose; it's intriguing even before tasting. On the palate, black cherry, currant, and boysenberry, with notes of olive tapenade, lemon peel, and leather on the long finish, with no noticeable tannins and well-balanced acidity. This is outstanding, and it's at its peak, although it should hold for several years. The Cellartracker drinking window is at least a few years too short. This was an outstanding value as well at about $80 - I wish they were still making this.

    July 31, 2018 - Napa Cabs by Luis - Part II (Jason's House): Slow O'd 3 hours. The nose is pleasant but the palate is big, heavy and has a lot of anise. My initial impression was 89 but eventually settled on 88.

    April 2, 2017 - Opened for 3 hours. Nose is black olive, a touch of pepper and dark cherry. Palate is soft and round with cassis, olive, blackberry bramble. The wine is in a great spot right now, but has the backbone to go another 5 years easy. Drink or hold.
