    October 15, 2021 - To be honest, this wine blew me away. Elegant, refined, structured, deep in flavor, with a lovely nose, and rich ripe fruit. I kept thinking to myself, "holy shit, this is really, really good." I would characterize this wine as memorable and one of the finest examples of a California Cab I've ever been lucky enough to consume. I will treasure my last two bottles.

    July 16, 2021 - Annual gathering with Chicago winos in Chicago (Smyth and The Loyalist - Chicago IL): Explosive nose displaying classic Napa cult cab nose, crème de cassis, blackberry jam, Cabernet mineral dust, cedar, vanilla/oak, rose, lead pencil, dark spices and crushed rocks. Exceptional concentration, layers upon layers of unbelievably concentrated black and blue fruit, unctuous and rich, perfect amount of acidity and mineral, very fine tannins and a long concerted black and blue fruit driven mineral finish with a hint of caramel at the end. This is moving at a glacial speed. This is a quintessential Napa Cult cab from the ear where bigger was better. Not sure how this will evolve.

    July 16, 2021 - DC/Chicago Wine Dinner Extravaganza (Smyth and The Loyalist - Chicago IL): Massive but one dimensional for me. Ripe fruit makes this finish too warm, and as a result this isn't aging gracefully. I liked this years ago when very fresh, not at all tonight. But this isn't the style of Cabernet I prefer.

    May 3, 2021 - A little closed to start but opened up and drank nicely with filet mignon. Open 1hr before consumption.
