A gift basket of black fruits, cinnamon, and a cocoa on the nose; simpler but supple on the palate with small, silky tannins. QPR is strong with this one.

11/2021. Great wine. Bold and full of flavor. This 2018 vintage is the best since 2015.

Did not get a photo at tonight’s meal. Expressive nose. Chewy tannins. Rich mountain fruit. Nicely balanced wine. Drinking nicely even while young, but should improve with age. There’s something about mountain fruit. @BLT Charlotte

Representative of Napa and good quality - ripe, with round tannins and solid structure without being overly extracted or Oaked. Dark fruit a-plenty (blackberries and plums) with chocolate with some tobacco. Easy to like.

Despite youngness, no flab. Graphite, smoke, oak and smooth tannins. Nice QPR. Christmas 🎄

I could make better wine in my basement with grapes I bought from the store. What a total disappointment. This is not worth buying. This is not worth drinking if someone gives it to you for free. How others have rated this so highly is beyond my ability to comprehend. You know just as an exercise you should go buy it and decide for yourself. There is no way this wine is worth 9 or more points.

Usually this is a very good everyday wine. But I’m not to excited about the 2018 Cab. Just ok for me.
