    April 28, 2018 - I enjoyed this more than I did on the first go round. A nicely mature and well balanced bottle of Napa Cabernet. Not sure this will continue to improve but should hold well for another 5-10 years. This was the WOTN for our brother & sister in-law who don't usually get to drink cabs with any age. Sort of a soft, supple cab, with some leather, tobacco and earth notes and dark plum and red raspberry fruit. Nice but not a lot of additional complexity.

    March 16, 2018 - This is one of my least favourite vineyard 29 wines I have had ( I generally am a fan) One cannot doubt the concentration and the purity behind it but it has a somewhat vegetal flavor and doesn’t have the balance and integration of the best Cali cabs. Red and black fruits, smoke, mocha, bell pepper. Lots of glycerin but doesn’t really come together. Chewy and heavy. Maybe over time this develops but I am a bit skeptical.

    February 9, 2018 - Decanted and poured pretty quickly, similar to the estate bottling we tried last week this wine is also surprisingly very soft and easy drinking. Dark fruits and some alcohol on the nose, it on the palate is is. Dry round and smooth, no grip or complexity but also nothing objectionable. No secondary or tertiary flavors coming through here and not a lot of structure to age - time to drink up.

    December 17, 2017 - Fabulous Napa cab that is drinking very nicely right now. Tons of black fruit which is tempered by good acidity. I wish I had more!

    September 11, 2017 - Complex nose, moderate acidity and fruit with very long finish. Excellent bottle!!
