Impressive wine, flashy yet somehow still understated. Hints of old Napa lie beneath modern Napa glitz; ultimately the Vineyard abides...

Shared by gracious guests this fine evening: Blackberry, red bell pepper, violet, graphite, sawdust, clove, cinnamon, anise, tar...fruit & grip & cool acidity, burns a bit on the way down. More restrained than I expected, but still a big boy.

Chewy goodness, cigar box, is obviously restrained at this age. Look forward to drinking in a few hours

It’s not about the year....nothing short of spectacular....velvety tannins and a blue berry/chocolate/coffee core....a stealth type of hedonistic cab

Not my style, but good... Very extracted, lots of black fruit and plums, very rich. Probably should have had a steak ;)

Such a beautiful wine... Even this 2011 vintage was a pure winner.
