2 hr decant and it needed it. This has significant life left as there is plenty of acid and tannin left. Early this showed cherries, saline and soy at 1 hr. We started drinking at 2 hrs with significant blackberry, black cherry, cedar, graphite and pencil shavings. Consumed over 90 min and raspberries began to show up near the end, but even then still some tannins and acid left. Interesting to see where this goes in 3 years. I would've put this as a 2010. Good, but has room to get even better, even at 11 yrs old.

Still has a few years on it in the bottle but a great wine with an hour decant. Really enjoyed the classic Napa mid-valley fruit.

2005. Wine of the night. Stupendous combination of fruit and secondary flavors. Cedar like aromas peeking through the red cherry fruit. Time to drink this.

Still young, but drinking nicely after being open for 2.5+ hours.
