Interesting massive cab - the nose initially was like an old concert barrel room (love that) and it’s dark raspberry quickly is overtaken by the tannins. This needs 5 more years to rest (I did decant it). Worth a try - good wine and back story.

The new new Dakota Shy Cab and Childish Gambino a la @Anthony Lombardi ...as Todd says, it’s “headbanger boogie good!”

This wine is spectacular and, sadly, my last bottle. Blueberries, cassis, dark chocolate, and violets. Superbly integrated and extremely elegant. Todd Newman really produces amazing wines.

a bit young still but oh so good after letting it breathe for an hour. add Dakota Shy to the top of your list next time you visit Napa - you will not be disappointed!

Excellent! Concentrated cab. Blackberry, cassis, and cocoa. Intoxicating nose and lingering finish. Todd Newman make fabulous wines! This should still improve with age for some time to come, but drinking beautifully now!
