Aaron:  This is a good bottle featuring chocolate, bark, and blackberries.  There was some tar covering red fruits on the palate with a bit of licorice.  Dark brown, water-soaked tree trunks finish off the taste making for a well-rounded bottle.  90 points

Teri: I enjoy trying single block (meaning the grapes are all grown within the same square “block” of the vineyard) wines because they always carry unique characteristics from their specific growing area. This cab is extremely full but easy to drink with a nose of pomegranate, cocoa, and sweet oak. Six years in the bottle had delightfully rounded out the tannins allowing for maximum flavor with no bitter pucker. I tasted bell pepper, white pepper, and noticeable oak. A solid wine. 91 points
