For the vintage and pedigree it underperforms. Still a good wine.

Reliably good. Can't decide if this 2013 is better than the 2012.

A much more approachable style. Showing classic Napa and Oakville characteristics. More fruit forward then I remembered, but showing some depth and complexity. Will be great to see how it ages.

Expected a bit more from a 2013, but drinking well right now. Nice fruit and earthiness.

Last had one of the two years ago. Aging beautifully! Full, dry, balanced...superb Napa Cab. Six more laid down for future years.

Beautiful color and nose. Bold, mild tannins, dry. Plums, blackberries, black cherries on palate. Long satisfying finish. Outstanding!
