    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.

    perfectly aged Napa Cab. Second and third bottles
    fruit was still plentiful more full bodied than the first beautiful Cab drinking at its prime .Backberry
    blueberry , dark fruit integrated , light oak and very slight heat on the nose .Opened for 3 hrs no
    decant drank over 5-6 hr period .

    February 16, 2016 - Really lovely tonight. While this packs a punch, it has a very light delicate side. Darker nose, framed well by oak. Nice red fruit profile, with red currants on the palate. This is very smooth and delicious right now. In a great spot and should stay here but drink these now. No need to wait any longer.

    November 16, 2015 - Fairly dense wine with lots of red and blue fruit notes. Low acidity but ample tannins that went through some dusty stages throughout the night. Underbrush, tobacco and latte notes made the wine interesting. Fun to drink.

    August 22, 2015 - A notch below the 2007 in my opinion but just quibbling here. Terrific wine, decanted for 2 hours and it is a classic Cab - big, long finish with nice notes of blackberry and pepper. If you compare this to other, more 'celebrated ' Cali cabs this is a very good QPR.
