    July 15, 2020 - Lovely, smooth, mature cab, with fine elegant cassis notes on nose and palate, rich but also elegant on the palate, with fine balance and length.

    May 9, 2020 - To be honest, an OK bottle of Cab, not something too linger over. Decanted after cork disentegrated on removal, well balanced but no essential fruit. Has nothing on a good Red Mountain cab. Would have hoped these would knit into something greater than the sum of the parts, but after the disappointing 2005, did not want to take the chance of waiting too long.

    October 26, 2019 - Drinks wonderfully right now, with proper breathing. Slow oxed for an hour, followed by several hours of decanting; tasted throughout. Gorgeous floral nose that persisted from the opening. On the palate, plenty of energy, some clay, indian spices, tobacco, and dark fruit notes. Great richness and depth of fruit balanced by very good acidity and well-resolved tannins. Appears to be at its peak, relative to my prior tasting in 2015.

    October 9, 2019 - PnP with steak. Good but poor QPR. Maybe needs time, but oak is integrated and tannins are not fierce. Mid+ body, mid acid, 13.8%

    June 16, 2019 - Very dense with black berry fruits. It needs a long decant as it seems young right now. With time, the violet and fennel starts to appear. A bit atypical for the Corison Napa, but very good. Just give it more time.
