2014 vintage. Beautifully balanced in a more understated style than many others in Napa. Fantastic elegant and complex wine with a true sense of place. Grand vin.

A guest gave me some of this to taste and what a treat it was. Lighter in color, bordering on a faded brick and orange rim, the nose was incredible and floral. Tame compared to wines of today, it was soft and yet the palate still had a slight bit of tannic acid, just enough to notice. A really beautiful wine and I can't get enough.

Great Napa blend! Tannins are really smoothing out. Plum, blackberry, cassis, green pepper. Awesome.

Rich, deep red fruits. Great structure. Dusty cherry and supple tannins.

An '11 vintage. I enjoy the fact that leaner wines were made that year and this was much more earthy, but didnt quite have the fruit needed to support it. I would drink these soon.
