Surprisingly exceeded expectations. Not sure it is worth the $80 price tag but very good. Opened up nicely after 30 min decant.

Napa cab 4 of 8. A bruiser. Well made but too big for me. 14.8% alcohol.

Elegant, with great loft and focus. Floral cassis fruit, dusted with chocolate, with well integrated subtle oak.

Pnp, drinking wonderfully right now. Lush black and blue fruits with subtle tobacco and cocoa. Still has a few more years in its peak drinking window.

This is a well balanced and very lovey red win.

Significantly better than the bottle from 2 months ago, that had to be an off bottle. This is drinking so well right now. Elegant and silky smooth with black & blue fruits, creamy cocoa, and a bit of earth.

Whoa significant changes since 10 months ago...either this is an off ish bottle or this has drastically changed.
Much, much more earth, mint, mushrooms, and leather flavors.
This has taken a 180 from 10 months ago.
Still have a few bottles left so hopefully this is just an off bottle.
