Dark tawny, opaque all the way to the rim. Seductive fragrant nose. Notes of red fruit, blueberries, cedar and moist forest floor. Rich, velvet in the mouth. Long finish. There’s a nice sweetness matched against some big structure. Great wine.

Destroyed. Not corked, not maderized, not excess sulphur, not va, maybe excess brett? Not sure what happened here but this wine smelled like a bad mussel or oyster. Beyond awful, not sure what happened here but this is one of, if not, my favorite producers in napa. Very unexpected and disappointing.

Something really special. Brooding and tannic. But light and acidic. Napa needs more wines like this

Very serious player, my gosh those tannins will rip a few teeth. Very well poised.
