    March 1, 2019 - 1 Hour Decant. ULTRA smooth and balanced, if a tiny bit reticent. I would wait another 2-4 years at least, but in a good place now if you can decant for a couple of hours and prefer an elegant version of fruit forward. Only getting better.

    July 5, 2018 - This is my 6th bottle of a case. I haven't opened one since Sept 2015 (about 2 1/2 years). The tannins have receded, but it remains a youthful, structured wine. This is a wine of restraint, elegance, balance, and complexity. The mountain top fruit provides verve and minerality. LOVED this bottle. Full disclosure: my wife said "meh" (well not that exact word). Her normally sharp palate missed this one, I think.

    October 28, 2017 - Not what I expected. Deep reddish hue, fair amount of Spring Mountain Fruit. Tannins have eased off to reveal a welcoming wine. However I though it would have aged better and retained more power

    October 27, 2016 - An "11" wine. As it goes to 11. "Couldn't you make 10 louder?" " But it goes to 11!"

    Alcohol? Check. Fruit? Bushels of dark berry and red fruit. Tannins? By the truckload. Acidity? Like naturel champagne. This is almost porto like. So over the top but so delicious.

    The quintessential over extracted fabulous flashy Napa cab.

    Via Corbin at a very nice Italian place in Rancho Cordova, Il Forno Classico.
