1hr+ decant. Dark red color with purple tones. Nose is balanced between dark fruit and new oak. Classic Napa Cab all the way. Fruit forward, strong oak presence, and on the sweet side. Medium finish. Past prime but hanging in there.

30+ minute decant. Prime drinking age. Dark red color with brownish rims. Nose is dominated by burning wood and dirt. Lovely texture and more terroir than fruit, with a subtle sweetness to it. Finish was medium minus and somewhat watery. Pleasantly surprised based on my last bottle in late ‘18.

Over the hill. Lacked any discernible characteristics. Drinkable, but not much to it.

Needed time to open up. After an hour, it was very full body and paired well with Pork loin roast.

Didnt know what to expect. Had not had this wine in probably 5 years or so and at that time it was way to young. Has matured nicely still lots of fruit showing and tannins have soften nicely. 😎
