November 12, 2018 - Drinking with Indian food the lamb pairs well.
June 9, 2018 - The wine has medium acidity. The wine finishes medium. The wine looks inky colored. The legs are medium. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. The wine has polished texture.
October 22, 2017 - Pleasant but nothing special. A bit light bodied for a Napa cab. Hoping for more out of this vintage.
September 2, 2017 - PnD let air for two hours. Consistent with previous notes. Opened up a lot over the course of dinner. Some of its subtlety and finesse may have been missed as the night got late.
May 7, 2017 - Tight when first opened, but bloomed pretty quickly. Not a big cab, but enjoyable at this point.
March 30, 2017 - Well matured and nuanced. Medium to full bodied. Well balanced.
November 27, 2016 - PnP. Medium to dark garnet, slightly translucent at the edges. Nice nose of eucalyptus, plum, vanilla and anise. On the palate, plummy, smokey, bright and easy to drink with just a little mostly integrated tannin. Nicely balanced with a fairly short but pleasant finish.
June 24, 2016 - A bunch of wines with friends (Pine Lake Trout Club): Another nice Cabernet. Purple in color. The nose has cassis, some tobacco, cedar and spice. On the palate, there is very nice fruit. Juicy cassis. Some tannins. Good balance. Nothing wows, but the total package is better than the sum of its parts. Good finish. I don't think it get's better but no hurry.
May 31, 2016 - Plums blackberry, cherry, great mouthfeel.
May 24, 2016 - It has a nice aroma and bouquet. Smooth wine but not a very long finish. For a 2007 I was expecting a more robust flavor.
