Drinking beautifully with a nice balance of fruit and secondary notes. Better structure than expected considering its 15 yrs old. Quick filter & decant of 20 minutes, then opened up quickly once in the glass.

Brown around the edges with good legs. Black olive and sundried tomatoes on the palate, with red licorice. Flavor bomb in the mouth. Dried spices, including fennel. What an exciting wine. Merus of this vintage is never boring! Thank you Erika for another incredible bottle. You make the best wine!

Great nose, spicy on the palate with classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon flavors. Still youthful and vibrant.

Lovely and opulent. Dark blue and black fruit, perfumes nose, similar palate along with silky smith tannins and hints of wood. Blackberries, blackberry liqueur, raspberries, raspberry liqueur. Some secondary herbal notes starting to come alive (e.g., sage)
