Still quite young at 14. Firm tannin, bright fruit, good acid balance.

WOW. I think this one has improved from the last 1-2 years that I've tried this wine. Has integrated nicely. Served alongside a 2012 Spoto Wines Cab Sauv Private Reserve, this wine is definitely showing a nice balanced profile of aged fruit on the front, a little pepper on the finish, but JUST now starting to show some black berry and spice and dancing all over the place. Really impressed with this wine. If Shay was here, he would be able to focus down on exactly what was here. But, needless to say this wine continues to evolve and is good to go for another 10 years.

Bold, big smell on open surprises when followed by smooth even taste. Even without airing, pleasant mouth feel without strong aftertaste. Notes on delicious summer fruit went well with Deep color of the wine.

Little taste of Pauillac in Ca. I would say this wine has 25-30 good years ahead of it. Should have waited but still so good

Caught the wine a bit past its prime. The notes were a bit leveled out but still well structured. Not quite what I was expecting as I was searching for the ‘02, bit still a good to great bottle.

I love Napa Cabs and I enjoy variety but you can't beat the tried and true Titans from Chateau Montelena and Joseph Phelps
