Grafs family minus K visit (Ho left) mom BD 5/7/22. Cab lineup through the decades. A well made modern restrained Napa Cab that’s light on its feet with bright fruits and good acids. Good aging potential. — 2 months ago
Dark color, concentrated. Heavy alcohol dominates, fairly acidic. Works reasonably well with lamb chops, too strong on its own. — 4 years ago
Menthol, tobacco, and sweet dark fruits — 6 years ago
A super special dinner with Pax and Wind Gap wines. This amazing, Northern Rhone style Syrah blend has aged gracefully. The perfect end to the night. — 7 years ago
On the nose it takes me back to Santa Barbara or pass tasting Syrah. Dark jammy fruit with dirt/forest, tons of baking spice, some wood, coffee grounds, and good tannin. I like this much more than the other reviews, maybe because price being 17 bucks? — a year ago
10 years in and drinking incredible. Soft yet full. Fruit still robust. — 5 years ago
07' Anderson Conn Valley Reserve. We opened a bottle of this several years ago, it wasn't showing particularly well. I was hoping for the best tonight , I'm thinking we came close.
Which seems to be my usual one hour decanting along side the Agharta. This 100% Cabernet shows very little signs of aging at all. This is NOT a powerhouse of wine. Light/medium- bodied cab. Layers of black fruits .Very expressive, nice mouth feel to it. A slightly shortened finish? Light sediment. I don't think this wine is peaking yet?
Edit- The tannins have dissipated, but the acidity is still rather present. Thinking it's got another 8/10 very good years in it.

It was very smooth and light. One of my favorite Pinot Niors that I have had in a long time! — 2 years ago
Color of dark opaque purple with slight grey note on the rim. Nose of fragrant ripe cherry,raisin, strawberry ice cream, sweet oaky flavor, some violet, and actually some apricot/pear nose. Taste is very dry, with well structured tannins, significant note from tobacco leaves, ripe cherry, dried strawberries, some cocoa, milk chocolate, hint of graphite, and subtle acidity like balsamic vinegar. The flavors are plentiful to enjoy. Aftertaste is long and structured, with tannins slowly wining down and rest of the favors surfacing, tobacco leaves, subtle acidity, milk chocolate all existent. — 5 years ago
