Very inviting nose of toasted oak and hints of mint. Palate is mineral-driven. Palate is fresh and clean, with tobacco, sage and mint. Finishes with caramel and soil. Excellent example - from magnum.

Consistently great. Not saying it’s in the same echelon, but the flavors remind me of Schrader To Kalon.

I’ve always had a sweet spot for this producer. When I saw the WS rating, I had to try it.
It’s my sort of Napa cab, without the nosebleed at the checkout. Rich, plush nose of coffee and maple syrup. Presents with depth and texture on the palate. Tannins are ripe, indicating longevity. I’m going back to the well!

Just as good as always! Deep and earthy Rutherford flavor. Only gets better aged. Need to stock up a bit on this next club period.

Full bodied, great cab! I do appreciate the blackberries and beef Jersey! Lol!

Muted fruits, never really opened up even after a day. underwhelming for WS top 100. Shrimp and scallop mushroom risotto.

Rich and chewy. Exhibits lush blackberry, mocha, toasty oak, and tobacco leaf. A big wine, not extracted but really pushing the limit that way. Nice and well rounded choice, if not alluring. A WS Top 100.

Solid, easy to drink cab. Some cigar box on the finish.
