    January 22, 2019 - Has blossomed into a terrific wine. Long life remains. Will get more complex from here.

    February 4, 2017 - This needed about an hour in the decanter to open up and and allow some of the parts to come together, but once it unwound it was beautiful

    Nose: Black Cherry, Red Plum and Blackberry Liquor notes give this a perfumed red/black fruit nose with spice, oak, smoke and camphor notes giving support. Palate: Layers of fruit with baking spice, clove, leather, caramels and sage adding complexity to the suave palate feel here. Finish: Very long and persistent with more of the glossy fruit and spice here.

    This remains a great wine made in a classic Napa style from a fantastic property in Calistoga. Ripe but never in "cocktail wine" territory, Kelly and Celia really get the heat and ripeness of Calistoga to show off the terroir of Pickett road beautifully. I enjoy these more and more as they age.

    November 6, 2015 - 96+, just a Gourgeous wine.

    December 30, 2014 - Smooth, delicious cabernet. Light integrated tannins. Popped and poured at the wife's birthday dinner and didn't analyze the wine very much. I would have enjoyed tasting this a couple of years ago but think it is drinking really well right now.

    June 15, 2014 - Nose: Blackberry, red cherry, cassis, florals and pie spice. Palate: Refined and gorgeous with ripe black/red fruit, clove, cinnamon and nice ash notes. Finish: moderate but huge presence. Spices linger forever.

    Polished large scale effort with gorgeous moutfeel. The best is still not being revealed but it is on point.
