Blackberry, cherry, currant, licorice, oak and hints of vanilla. Full-bodied and moderate tannins. — 6 days ago
Definitely wins the award for heaviest bottle ever!! Must weigh twice that of a regular bottle.
Better than the ‘04 Corison Cab last night and at a lower price point.
Dark purple color. Nose contains cedar, cough medicine, and mild mushrooms. Wine actually has character and elements of terroir. Not all that common in Napa Cabs at this price point I’m discovering. Excellent gritty, sandy texture. Deep wine with black cherry fruit and mild smoke. Medium plus finish.

Holding up very well. Magnum helps. Keeps getting better with time. Not even beginning to fade. Wine Tasting at Andy and Elaine’s. — 14 days ago
If @Cathy Corison made cab blends in Tuscany, they would be this great. Complex, begging for some age to strut. Gorgeous aromatics after an hour decant, followed by layers of dark and light red berry, asian spice, bridle leather and a hint of mint. Built to last (but no oak or vanilla to speak of), just silky tannins front to back. Outstanding. 20 years to go. — 4 months ago
Beautifully complex with creamy texture. Great match with a rib eye steak! — 5 months ago
This showed beautiful balance and a noteworthy structure. Earthy nose of sage and other dried herbs, sort of a damp forest floor thing, and dried but firm red and black fruit. It tasted bold and subtle at the same time - one of the best examples of Old and New World styles in the same bottle I’ve ever experienced. The closest thing I can think to compare it to is a Corison Cab. Very complex now, but will certainly improve. I look forward to revisiting this again. — 6 months ago
