Aside from the Barrel Select and their dessert wines, I didn't really rate any of their other reds or whites. But to give it only 3 stars would be harsh because the rest of the experience was fun and the host generous with the tastings.

From a European perspective, although all the wines in Napa are generally decent, they're very expensive so I would be unlikely to buy them when I can buy equivalents for less money. The Cab Savs are good, but you can get cheaper ones of equal quality from other countries. This was true of the Barrel Select. Nice wine for sure but expensive.
Tasting from the barrel direct is a bit of fun - the wine has obviously not been blended yet so is unrepresentative of the finished article but it's educating nonetheless.

Our host was generous with the tastings and let us taste their port and dessert wines.

We enjoyed our tasting here the wines are delicious and the tasting room has a good window onto the barrel hall. We didn't sit outside but it would be lovely on a fine day

Loved the 2015 Hewitt Cab – WINNER!
Did barrel tasting. No, we did not taste the barrel. We tasted the wine inside the barrel.

This is the worst wine to club to ever join. They will change your membership type without even letting you know. They changed ours to a type of wine we don't even drink and they charged us a lot more money for the shipment. They wont credit our card when want to send it back to them. Stay away
