A second try in a few weeks. Poured after a blind cab tasting and was just another level above. Bold fruit, red and black berries, pencil shavings, fig. Beautiful finish. Lush.

A very powerful Cab nose, with syrupy boysenberry aromatics. Blackberry, vanilla hints, bing cherry and dark chocolate mid palette profile. Can’t wait to see how this progresses.

Another 4th Friday for the books. What a much needed time out of the house and to be with friends after this past week.

Every aspect of this wine is Oakville. Nose and palate were identical...a powerful blackberry mid-palate note, graphite/lead, floral and herbal, overload of plums. These wines give Gargiulo and other Oakville Cabs a lesson in sheer power. Tannic structure for days, but it doesn’t bite like mountain AVAs. It’s soft, plush, and accentuates the fruit at this young age.

Rich flavors of leather, oak, pepper, black currant, and hints of anise. Dark, dry, and bold.

Excellent wine. Incredibly easy to drink and balanced. Not too many tannins. Just perfect. I can’t wait to visit this winery in person one day.

Good, but a lotta dough. The oak stood out a bit.
