    November 25, 2019 - Last bottle from release, and best one yet! Still very youthful garnet color with the only signs of it's age is the wonderful integration. Silky smooth, creamy dark berry fruit(reds and blues)..more savory dried fruit than candied sweetness...with a wonderful dusty graphite spice and firm white pepper oak barrel tannin kick on the finish. More of an elegant Napa cab, not a fruit bomb, with deep and broad complexities. Cedar and licorice...rich loamy earth, bay leaf and dark chocolate round out the mix. Killer Cab...aging well!

    March 23, 2019 - Very smooth and balanced. Easy tannins, great mid-palate and finish. Crowd pleaser.

    April 2, 2017 - The first sip immediately after opening was awesome, pure red fruits and fine tannins. 30mins of air and it was all VA, with sticky dark over ripe fruits on the palate and nothing but alcohol and varnish on the nose. Never came back together and pretty much undrinkable. Helf some for night 2 to see if it recovers.
