While this is not the best wine so far, I really love this producer. Very ripe and round-soft. It juicy on the palate. Blackberries, black raspberries, purple fruits, poached strawberries, dry soils, black licorice to anise, used leather, dark fruit cola, beautiful dark spice, coffee grounds, dry stems, violet, dark flowers and lavender.

Finally getting around to posting Day 5 in Napa, our final day. 5 years in a row visiting...hope to make it 6 next year!

A wonderful wine, with room for score improvement over the next few years. Signature SLD to me. Mocha, dark cocoa, blackberry pie and a streak of ripe/rich red fruit down the middle. Dusty. Cinnamon and baking spice finish. Very good.

This was a pleasant surprise. I thought there were notes of tea, leather and cherries. This drinks so nicely, various dark fruits meld together making a luscious glass of wine. Blueberry, dark cherry, currants, touch of earth and dark chocolate were some highlights. The finish is elegant. This was a very enjoyable bottle of wine. Well worth a visit if you want to splurge on something nice.

After a solid decant, this young Cab displayed dark berries which stayed long through the finish.

Balanced and beautiful. Deep dark fruit with hints of wet black stones that still retains a boldness and restrained spiciness.
