Enjoyed 8/12/22 with crab cakes. Very smooth light taste with a great buttery flavor. Perfect with meal. Need another bottle — a month ago
Decanted 7 hours and then poured back into the bottle before service, 4 hours later. No formal notes. The 2019 “Caravina” is showing classic notes of black currants, tobacco, and baking spices with a gentle touch of vanilla. The finish is dry with significant structure. Already lovely with extended exposure to air, I’m looking forward to following the evolution of this wine for the next 10-15+ years. This remains one of Napa’s best values. — 7 months ago

With saba ship yaki and uni ikura soba — 6 months ago
Surprisingly youthful for 35y, served from a magnum.
Still deep in colour, with not much evolution towards the rim.
Uplifting aromatics with cigar box, tobacco leaf, cedar wood, some kirsch, but also some black currant jam.
Medium bodied on the palate with nice balance, the tannins still surprisingly grippy, though a touch dry.
Nicely poised, with good flow and high drinkability.
What a surprise! — a year ago
I had this in Ireland with delicious food at library street - I can taste each wine and the personality of them all from Oregon. Silk, minerality, lemon, white peach — 7 months ago
