Easy to enjoy already which is true of most 12's. ripe and juicy plums, blackberries, dark cherries, black raspberries, touch blue fruits, spice-box, light earthiness (crushed brown volcanics), dry florals, good acids & round & ripe finish.

What a find! One lonely 2010 bottle at Von's in San Diego on "super sale". Perfectly balanced and velvety. My only lament is that it is gone.

Not an overly big cab, perhaps I should have decanted more. But a classic Napa cab that held up with a flavorful dinner. One of the original Napa cab producers.

Good not great like other vintages, more fruit on this vintage. Still a nice big Cab, decanted for 4 hours, should have done more. Not even sure if still young or just the vintage...

I’m so glad I grabbed this off the shelf tonite! Simply delicious. Can’t wait to drink all my others from 2009!
