    December 1, 2019 - Lots of typical cab fruit here, with huge oak influence still evident, but not as many of the secondary aromas that I expect at this stage of the wine’s development. Perhaps these will develop with some more time in bottle. Nonetheless, a very good wine.

    November 30, 2019 - Drank on day two. Chocolate, cedarwood, vanilla and dark currant. Elegant for a napa with bright and balanced ripe fruit.

    October 2, 2019 - Deep ruby in the glass. Big oak coming out on the nose right away - rich notes of blackberry, vanilla, cedar, chocolate. Not exactly as exciting on the pallet as I was expecting it to be. Smooth, rich and balanced, yes, but lacks depth and focus. The oak will integrate better in the years to come, but I'm afraid that this will not age as gracefully as some vintages I've tried in the past.

    September 26, 2019 - Drank over two days. I guess there is some bottle variation in this vintage at this stage of evolution. This never blossomed into the deep, earthy palate that other bottles have. Nevertheless it's a delicious wine with that beautiful fruit, strong velvety tannins and a touch of earth. Lacks the depth and focus for a higher score.

    September 9, 2019 - WCC Stag Wine Night Blind Tasting @ Jade Palace [Solaia 2008, Opus One 2007, Unico 2006, Dominus 1997, Latour 1996]: 2nd bottle for the night - Black fruits, liquorice, cake and incense bouquet. Palate of black fruits, black cherries, Black Forest cake, liquorice, with a tinge of smoky tertiaries. Long, mint leaves, menthol and tobacco finish. Opulent and powerful, yet not overwhelming. Full bodied, hedonistic. The bottle maintained its stride throughout the night. Best for the night for a few of us; but second for me. Nonetheless, this was very memorable. Open now and good for many more years.
