    October 18, 2021 - I will preface this by saying that this wine was kept for probably 7 years in a cellar that had slightly suboptimal temperature and humidity. This wine is right down the middle right now. Neither showing the exuberance of youth nor the complexity of age. It is showing both. The nose is blackberry, black cherry, fig, aged brambleberry, wildflowers, and this is echoed at the palate as well. The wine is definitely not unidimensional as you see in a lot of the current high dollar "Napacabs" as this one seems to celebrate what makes this wine a complex and representative sample of what Napa Valley has to offer versus what one producer has to offer. Finishes with a lot of black fruited character. Really enjoyable wine. I would decant for about 3 hours if opening this one again. Serve them a little bit of bourbon to peak their interest first.

    August 24, 2021 - Really really good. Drank out of a magnum over two nights. Was just as good if not better on the second night. Leads me to believe this wines got many more years ahead of it if you like a more earthy flavor. If you want the big Napa fruit drink now. Definitely one of my favourite NAPA producers. One more bottle in the cellar which I’ll wait another decade to drink

    Tasted non blind.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of aspirin, smoke, pepper, cherries and a hint of dust. Flavors of black raspberries, black cherries and black boysenberries. Medium to tangy acidity, medium to firm tannin, full bodied. Drink now with air or continue to hold.

    Showing much better than the last bottle I had. Maybe another point or more upside potential as well.

    June 2, 2021 - Dark red. Nose is ripe with some spice. Oak integrated, rich and creamy black fruit with integrated tannin and kiss of acid at the finish. Young and beautiful.

    May 26, 2021 - Fruit forward, concentrated classic Napa Cab that has dark, blackberry, plum-like fruit. Notes of cassis, dark chocolate and tobacco with soft silky tannins after a hour decant. Normally, we finish a bottle but in this case, left half of it for day two and it was even better with the fruit and tannins even more fully integrated..almost two different ratings.
