    August 16, 2019 - Napa with friends; 8/15/2019-8/18/2019 (Napa, CA): Pop and pour. A well made Napa cabernet in more of a concentrated, powerful style - dark fruited, with some black licorice, dark chocolate and mint. Still young but entering the drinking window - would allow these to continue to rest if they were in my cellar.

    April 15, 2018 - Still tannic. Decanted 2 hours and was much better than initially. Based on this bottle and NVR experience, peak is 2020-2023. Decant 1 hour plus at that time. 2007 & 2008 NVR drinking much better at this time.

    February 21, 2018 - Quite big style Napa, very bright red and black fruits, some sweet spice, hints of VA on the nose. Full bodied wine with very concentrated fruits. A bit too big for my taste

    March 16, 2017 - This is a strong abrasive wine at this moment but still really enjoyable. Really nice fruit dominates the tasting. Lots of alcohol throughout as well and very warming. But it was enjoyable to drink.

    January 29, 2017 - Massive dark chocolate nose dominates. Big wine and not showing today as tight large scale and large scale tannic structure. Kinda shut down.
