    April 23, 2019 - Nothing like the last bottle tasted which was spectacular. Hot, overly alcoholic and frankly disappointing.

    September 26, 2018 - Decanted for 90 mins before serving. Very rich and ripe but also light on its feet. The palate showcased cassis, black currant, vanilla and pepper which resembled the nose very much. There was this regalness and elegance that were squeezing out subtlely from the palate. The tannins were soft and silky. I enjoyed this very much tonight but I would prefer it even more if the fruit was less ripe. Good effort for his first vintage. Like many cult napa wine, my concern is he ageability. The wine is drinking beautifully already. But can it age and improve? 93-94

    September 5, 2018 - My God, this was a life-changing bottle. Shared with 4 people around a high-end dinner; after an hour and a half decant, the first sip around the table and we just stared at the glass and each other for about 5 minutes searching for the words to describe it. So complex and intense, we could probably write a book about this one bottle trying to capture the experience. No kidding. I'm not a neophyte with high-end, classic and cult wines, but this was THE most memorable of all. Endless purity, depth, complex layers and a nearly timeless finish. Sorry to gush, but it's all there, and drinking fabulously. Saved an ounce each for the restaurant owner and the executive chef to try, and I thought they'd pass out. It really was that amazing. Heading out to buy a lottery ticket now to see if I can find more...… Honestly, seek this one out, if you're able to do so.
