    October 13, 2017 - Another one I had forgotten. This is past its prime, but was (a bit) better with some air. On an initial pour, this was a quick punch of fruit, followed by a hollow mid-palate and then a bunch of residual oak. With some air it filled out a tiny bit of the middle, but I think this missed its intended purpose by several years. No tertiary notes, hanging on rather that evolving, drink these earlier... don't confuse this with the Martha's.

    August 20, 2016 - It's OK. Either held it too long or needed a really long decant. Or both.

    January 30, 2016 - 1st night: nicely structured but not getting enough fruit to balance the firm tannins. Dry medium chewy mouthfeel, decently long finish with dark fruit lasting a while, but initial flavor upon entry isn't overwhelming me. A good but not a great bottle.
    2nd nite: much better fruit/tannin/acid balance. Quite enjoyable, a bit of spice at the end, raised to 90 points.

    August 15, 2015 - Dark ruby color turning crimson at the rim with a reflective edge. The nose shows off red and black fruits, earth, eucalyptus, mint, and vanilla. The palate is full-bodied, dry, with a silky texture. Flavors of dark cherry, cassis, dark chocolate, espresso, black licorice, dried meat, and very mild smoked oak. This is a delight - one of the old-styled Napa Cabs that have maintained its classic style. Finishes long and pure with refined tannin and a hint of white pepper spice sprinkled on oak. Drink now until 2019.

    June 26, 2015 - Second and last bottle from my cellar and I am sad it is gone. Smooth wine with notes of currant, black raspberry, and earth. Tannins not overly pronounced. Enjoyed with a bone in ribeye and Quinoa. I think this wine is in a peak state right now drink it, it's fab!
