Impressive. Very young and tight. A burst of To Kalon fruit to start, before bright acids and tannins kick in. Don’t be in a rush to drink it 😊. Tasted during the Vinous Learn Oakville seminar.

This is a wine that will out live me - structure is outstanding but we violated the cork way too early. This could out live me.

@Carl Fischer Christine knew that we would all get along as soon as you walked in with this beauty in New York earlier this year!!! It's one of her favorites!!! Truly A phenomenal example of a great Napa cab. This is firing on all cylinders. I still have a dozen left in my cellar and can't wait to see the evolution that they will take in the next 15 years. Winner, winner chicken dinner! Great minds think a like Carl! LOL we must've had 60 bottles of wine that night and I still remember Christine saying "I really like that wine" when you walked in the door with that bottle! LOL The entire WNH @Joe Lucca @Mike Rowe @David L @Ron R would've had an incredible time this evening. We can't wait to see you within the near future!
