Exciting to try the 16 vintage. Excellent and very consistent with previous vintages. At Family Winemakers of California Tasting in Del Mar. WS also gave this 92 Pts.

Am I missing something? It’s a good wine, but at the price it should be better. Maybe I’m just grumpy tonight. Tasted the 2016.

Absolutely gorgeous cabernet. Loads of aromas come out of the glass. Blackberry compote, tobacco, and some soil. Seamless and suave. Mouthfeel is silky. Lack of tannins make more worried of longevity. Good for early drinking.

Rich red-fruited Cabernet. Leans sweet with no discernible acid or tannins, but does show the nose and texture typical of the Oakville AVA. A premium 'pop-n-pour' Napa Cab for restaurants.

1 hr decant, but tested throughout. Opened up and changed quite a bit over that time. 👃 is cherry, earth, and a little barnyard. Cherry, char, iodine, and plum in the mouth. There’s a lot to love, but there are a couple notes that protrude and break up the balance. Almost sexy.

Aggressive tannins at first but they mellowed out after some time in the decanter
