Delicious but I wonder if even a superior Sauv Blanc justifies the price. — 7 months ago
Late disgorged. Delicious pear, vanilla toasty nuts. — 7 months ago
Gorgeous golden color. Juicy, Meyer lemon and honey. — a year ago
Fruit forward, blackberry and plum skin, a tangy finish. I hoped it might open up but a day later it still felt tight. Great with food, good by itself with potential to be great with more aging. — 2 years ago
Very consistent Cab. While not a single-vineyard, I find its a solid expression of lush fruit and silky "Rutherford Dust" tannins. The '12 was pretty silky, I wouldn't reach for it to accompany a dinner but it's a crowd-pleaser on its own. — 7 months ago
