A nice cab, but did not measure up to its younger sister ‘15. More tannic. More complex. Will be a good wine in several years time.

Very good right now (Nov 2019) but will definitely improve over the next few years. Still a bit tannic but explosive black and blue fruit aromas and flavors along with mint, and earthy flavors. I'd hold for another year or two but no rush in drinking.

Tight but you still get a generous amount of fruit and oak. Layered with blue and red fruit, spice, oak, and toast. Has been open about an hour and needs more time. Probably should have waited to open it. I'm guessing my rating will improve.

2013 still young and will age beautifully. Ripe tannins, perfect acidity. Blackberry, cherries, some blueberry, even some cocoa/baking chocolate. Amazing wine.

Taste of honeydew, cantaloupe, Fuji apple, Meyer lemon. Big fruity bouquet.
