Whoaaa.... A dark, black fruit character, notes of smoke and gravel, and a heft that makes the taster pause and take notice. These hallmark aromas and textures are delivered on a bed of soft, supple, round tannins. This will certainly age for a decade. Superb offering drink thru 2022.

Best showing yet for the 2014, a wine that continues to come together in bottle. The energy of the year married to that Eastern Oakville richness. I underestimated this on release... Tasted during the Vinous Learn Oakville seminar 💥🤪😍.

Moderately saturated dark red. Slightly violety aromas of blueberry, raspberry, menthol, milk chocolate, leather and coffee bean. Juicy, intense and a bit tightly wound, with dark fruit, mineral, violet and licorice flavors framed and extended by sound acidity. Finishes firmly tannic, juicy and long, with repeating floral lift. Clearer and more youthful than a first sample I tried, which was creamy and sweet but a tad rustic and less transparent to its site. This bottle is just now ready to drink.

This was incredible. A shocker as I just don’t think of 1990 as a great Napa vintage and the 91 DV’s are just so good. The wine was almost perfect and the only thing that kept it from being so was......hmmmmm.........now that I think about it I’m here pressed to keep it from that. Okay okay, I’ll change to a 9.9.

Nice red fruits, but it had an overwhelming soy sauce aroma I couldn’t get past to fully enjoy this.
