Deep medium ruby with no sign of development. Musky aromas of blackberry, blueberry, soy sauce and licorice; almost liqueur-like. Huge, savory and utterly silky on entry, then plush and superconcentrated in the middle palate, boasting blackberry, licorice and mineral flavors of incredible intensity and penetrating sweetness. Utterly palate-staining in its breadth. Leaves the palate vibrating with black fruits and licorice pastille. When I originally tasted this wine from barrel, I noted that it was one of the greatest California Cabernets I had tasted to that point. This massive, three-dimensional wine finishes with huge, noble tannins and outstanding rising length. I suspect it's just embarking on its plane of peak drinkability, which might last another two decades. This may be the longest Cabernet of the 2001 vintage. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, June 2020)

Paired with dry aged ribeyes it was sexy synergy. Some may have been surprised by the lack of huge dominant character but I thought this was a truly integrated, perfectly aged first growth Napa. Balance, finesse, dense dark fruit, bell pepper, sage and chocolate mocha.

Maybe an off bottle? Acidity gone. Blueberry liqueur like. Underwhelmed.

Super tasty and soooo easy to drink. Not the most contemplative experience but so shamefully good. Pitch perfect for what it's supposed to be at 15 years.
