Ok - another 2011 Napa cab that is much better than critics say - Thomas Rivers Brown is winemaker - the wine even could go another five years - with WNH gang - I was amazed at the vibrancy - deep rich purple color - good balance - length was shorter than hoped for but nose and palette were full of dark black cherries blackcurrents and tertiary notes of cedar tobacco and cocoa - a great QPR for a TRB Napa cab — 6 days ago
The punishment beatings will continue until submission. Drew came with this bad boy from his cellar.
Cork disintegrated. Nose is peaty with mushroom and wood. Youthful on the palate with initial berry notes. Bright acidity has enabled this wine to sail on. Tertiary notes combine with resolved tannins. Lovely, mature wine. First growth in Napa for sure.

Dark ruby colored. Nose of ripe dark fruit. Mouth coating blue and black fruit. Ripe and fresh tasting. Fruit moves to oak tones with mellowed tannins. Appears to just be hitting its stride. — 25 days ago
A complete gem, wine was big but yet elegant. — a day ago
On the nose and the palate, you can see where this is going to evolve.
A beauty to behold. The nose displays graphite, iron and a blackberry compote. Palate is consistent with perfect weight and balance. Moderate acidity enables this to tilt towards a Bdx, rather than Napa. Extremely well done. A baby that needs more time in the bottle. Drinking with close friends. Does not get better… — 3 days ago
A bit disappointed as I was hoping for a more flavorful wine. — 13 days ago
Same presentation as the Gravely Meadow. So consistent. If you have not tasted this, please correct that scenario. Laser focused, displaying pristine fruits and moderate tannins. The regal structure caresses the mid-palate on the finish. One of the most impressive, balanced cabs in the price range. — 2 days ago
