Price keeps going up-but the quality? A little disappointing

Solid Cab. Young of course, but not giving up a ton. A touch thin but certainly enjoyable.

Bone dry, black plum, orange zest, oak. A bit tight out if the bottle. Short finish length. Acidic. Not a cocktail wine. But paired nicely with a Delmonico, as the acidity tames the marbling and adds a supple, if simple, note to the meal.

Always consistently beautiful. Enjoyed it tremendously. Great fruit and nose. Great way to end a lovely evening.

2002 vintage. This wine manifests all the elegance, subtlety and refined complexity of a Humvee. Then there is the nose, which tells me that the Humvee is transporting massive quantities of freshly cut oak 2x4s. The oak is overwhelming and unrelenting. There is some redeeming value to this wine: the bottle is so pretentiously overweight that after pouring it (should one decide to do that for some reason), you may be able to skip a weights training session at the gym. Really, why do this to innocent grapes? If, on the other hand, you like a totally mono dimensional, over extracted, over oaked, high alcohol, clumsy wine, with weight training benefits on the side, this wine is for you.
