"The 2018 Passing By is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon blended with 11% Petit Verdot and 7% Syrah. More black fruits, asphalt, tobacco, and earth emerge from the glass, and it’s one of the more overtly powerful, full-bodied, dense wines in the lineup. It’s terrific, but do your best to hide bottles for 3-4 years."

JEB DUNNUCK, 9/30/2021


"Winemaker Joshua Harp, along with top Napa consultant Tony Biagi, continues to go from strength to strength and it seems as if every vintage is the finest to date. The 2018s reviewed for this report are brilliant (I reviewed some 2018s last year as well) and the 2019s might be a step up. No shrinking violets, these are big, rich wines, yet the balance is spot on, the wines show remarkable purity of fruit, and I’d certainly be happy to drink any of them." - Jeb Dunnuck, Sept 2021
