    October 3, 2020 - All the normal flavors you get from a Napa cab. Wine still holding up beautifully! Still plenty of structure being lifted by the tannins. Tannins smooth with very little drying effect on the finish. Very balanced with plenty of fruit and acidity left. Subtle secondary notes of leather and cigar. Do not pay attention to the drinking window listed above. This has 5-7 years left if stored properly. Did not decant. Popped and poured. Was ready within 15 mins. Drink and enjoy!

    October 27, 2019 - Purple in color. 14.6% ABV. Fantastic nose of black fruits, plums, cedar and leather. Plush, concentrated and exceptionally well balanced. Full bodied with dark fruits in spades. Black currants, cassis liqueur, licorice and chocolate on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. At 18 years of age the silky tannins are deftly matched by gorgeous Cabernet fruit. Stunning wine that is aging gracefully. This will make 20 years of age without question. Best over the next 2-4 years.

    March 13, 2019 - Bought at release, well cellared since. Exceeded expectations - black cherry, smoke and vanillin, wonderfully integrated after 30 min decant. Soft tannins. Drinking great now; recommend drinking sooner than later, as fruit is still bright with secondary nuances subtly layered behind...really nice place for a Napa cab.
