    May 10, 2020 - Agree with the field on this around 93-94 points. It is a big boy, huge and tannic but great underlying flavors. First night I should have decanted for two hours before drinking; flavors great but tannins got quite pronounced. Second night (under pump) tannins more under control so overall experience great. Be sure to decant, but this will be good for years.

    May 2, 2020 - A good implementation of a Napa Cult Cab. Big fruit and big oak on the nose, with an intense palate that is well balanced fruity and oaky. A little sweet too but that is par for the course. There is complexity here with black cherry, blackberry, raspberry, oak, and vanilla. I’d prefer a Bordeaux like Ducru Beaucaillou most days but this is certainly a good rendition of Napa given realistic expectations. This is certainly better than The Maiden from 2001 and 2002, vintages which in my opinion were overrated in Napa. The 2001 was hard and tannic as many 2001 are, not much joy to drink. The 2002 was dense but not really giving, as 2002s tend to be. 2007 seems a much better ripe Napa vintage and this Maiden shows those good characteristics.

    November 23, 2019 - Really nice drinking. Deep, long, good flavors and long finish. May get better still. Glad I have this.
