Firm but still velvety tannins with hint of vanilla, lovely notes of black cherries, blackberry, cocoa and cassis

Yao would really love this. Smooth, big, rich Napa cab. Good amount of age on it but can probably still stand another year or two. Give me a glass of this and a steak any day.

Sweet bouquet, acerbic finish. At less than half the price of '05 Martha's Vineyard, I prefer the '04 Trailside.

Mellower than I expected. Also menthol-y. Nice release from these guys.

Ripe but not showing a lot of wear. Cassis, dried blackberry, dark chocolate sauce, violets. Still in really nice shape.

Deep, plummy, leather-bound goodness.

Stunningly smooth with notes of bell pepper, eucalyptus, and currant. Just perfect.

A cali cab that is begining to enter a great drinking window. After 3 hours decant the nose opened up with big full notes of cassis, bell pepers and some vanilla. The attack is very fruit forward with cassis and blackberries. Some sweetness as well with vanilla in the background. Tannins are medium and acidity is medium. The length is 45s and very cassis driven. Went great with steak frite. Easily can handle many more years of cellaring but can be enjoyed now with a decant.
