    April 15, 2021 - Still tasty after all these years. Hasn't missed a beat but won't improve any either. Loads of fruit, blackberry and plum. Well integrated tannins. Perfect cork.

    May 5, 2019 - It has been a year and a half since I last drank a bottle and it still is a beautiful thing. The only down side was the the cork broke and partially disintegrated during extraction. I was able to insert a vinturio through the hole to access the wine. Once in the glass dark fruit on the nose. The palate was dark berries, tobacco,, licorice, wood and dried sage. The finish was long and full with hints of mocha. Just a great bottle of wine. I still have two more in my cellar and there is no urgency to drink them. They can sit for another few years I will just be more aware of the cork situation.

    December 25, 2018 - Allowed to breathe 30 minutes. Clear deep dark inky garnet-purple-black. Bouquet of sweet black fruit (like baked pie rather than fresh), fennel, anise, forest floor, bourbon vanilla, spicy oak. Similar on the palate, full body, rich, ripe, seamless, velvet mouthfeel. High quality ripe, extracted, fruit-forward Napa cabernet.

    April 22, 2018 - Subsequent note on this wine from over four years ago. Deep, dark garnet bordering on opaque in color. Full, fragrant & attractive nose of ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, blackberries & cassis with overtones of spices & dusty/earthy notes, coffee, herbs, minty/eucalyptus, cocoa & a touch of toasty oak in the background. Full bodied with a very good concentration of well balanced & smooth textured, rich, ripe fruit flavors of dark cherries, blackberries & cassis with spices, herbs, mocha, minerals & a touch of vanilla. Long lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present with decanting & airing but presently at 14 years of age there is limited potential for further development from additional aging.
