This just keeps getting better every time we taste it. Tasting notes are so consistent, just that it’s becoming more nuanced and layered. Big and bold, with balance and poise. This will sail on in the cellar for 15 - 20 years.

Previous notes apply. Excellent cab.
My ex president boss in the background. Put every male to shame on the leadership level

Just stunning. Thrilled to be able to enjoy such a top-draw cab with my wife.

Tasted many times with consistent notes. Fantastic in so many ways. Very ripe tannins, bold acidity. Bold oak treatment. Finishes with coffee notes and crushed velvet. Complemented the ribeye perfectly 😋

This is coiled like a heavy spring. Dense and compact, with big, regal tannins. Superb oak treatment. This needs to rest for a few years in the bottle. Loving it right now, tho.

A superb example of cabernet. First time trying this, and while I’m biased as we have a relationship the winemaker. That being said, this is a full-throttle, fruit-forward Napa cab. Dense on the palate, with sublime oak treatment. Jet black fruits, with hints of coffee and cinnamon. A stellar way to celebrate Xmas with family. Loving this. Will buy more...
The label is also very innovative. A nice departure from the norm.
