Holy shit this is good! Will only get better with time. Last of the four blind wines!....forgot to add my review...
Deep and dark purplish red. Layered and complex nose with notes of gunpowder, cedar, black fruits, a little blue and spices. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. A bit perfumey on the attack with tons of dark berries, dark gravel, oak and tons of structure. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2040.

2 hour decant and it started to open up - was singing after 3. Beautiful cab with power and finesse. Plan to give it another couple years before opening another.

Sigh. I think this is entering a dumb phase. Not nearly as en pointe as 10 months ago. The fruits were quite restrained and tannins leathery. Hold for a while.

Dry, full-bodied, plenty of tannins. Palate is loaded with lush dark fruits. Complex, bold.

Over a 3.5 hour period on May 29, my wife and I (along with three kids in tow) had the pleasure of sitting down with Will Segui of Rivers-Marie and winemaker of his personal label William & Mary at the Mending Wall facilities in St. Helena to taste through seven wines from bottle. Will also graciously provided tastings of his 2016 and 2017 William & Mary varietals from barrel.

Big, rich, and bold, yet so well-balanced for such a young Napa Cab; completely fruit-forward right now; blackberry compote, creme-de-casis; clove, lavender, and a dark-woodsy effect on the nose; palate all the same and wonderful; silky, long finish; while this is so delicious now, it will definitely age well...but then again, why wait; one of my favorites year-over-year

Better nose than the Lore, but just a tad less complexity. Both young
