Exciting to taste the '15 vintage. Young, but beautiful. Will be a great wine two years from now. Rating upped from 9.1 11/5/16. Rating re-affirmed 3/30/17. Still young and powerful, but more settled and starting to shine. WS 93pts 10/2017. Tasting 4/20 - incredibly smooth now. Rating upped to 93.

Fruit forward, will benefit from more age. Was nice with a sizzling hunk of beef.

Strong red, lots of flavor. Great with tart cheese or steak.

A lot of layers; black raspberry, cassis, spice and licorice. This young Cab will only get better. Picking up on chocolate and plum too. Chewy texture.

A little too over-extracted and boozy for my taste (kind of hot and out of balance), but the flavors aren't awful for $18. #wine #pasowine

Pretty stellar. This will go into permanent rotation.

Not a traditional Cabernet. Once it opened up, big bold cherry taste. More of a Pinot noir
