Medium dark garnet in color. Intense black currant, also with smoke, leather, violets and pencil lead on the nose. Medium body. The flavors that come through are similar to the nose, mainly black currant, some cedar and ash, with a medium finish of black currant. Too bad this was our last bottle....

Velvety smooth. Full bodied. Warm chocolate, blueberry, and blackberry, and not at all tart, bitter, or sweet. Perfect deep true red color. This is a fantastic wine now, and I could only imagine how fantastic it will be in another few years. Divine all on its own!

This wine is really coming into its own. Creamy, rich mouth feel. Not overly extracted or flabby. Strong core of fruit and subtle oak. Very nice.

Drinking great right now. Dark in color with the show of rust from age, plenty of deep dark fruit but not jammy with a smooth long finish! Wish I had a few more bottles.

Dense, dark fruit, with significant tannins. Dark, brooding style of merlot. Not clear if there is sufficient fruit to improve as tannins soften with further bottle age. Try again 2016.

This is my third tasting note for this wine and I still love what they did here. I did drop the score from 94 to 93 as the organic's are starting to take center stage and the fruits are mellowing but a fine showing.

This wine still requires an hour decant to let it open up. In the glass the deep purple is still beautiful and it has limited clarity. Nose of red stone fruits, plums, strawberry and fresh leather.

Well balanced! The acids, tannin and alcohol are aligned and it delivers a smooth mouth feel. The red fruits are fading a touch but still beautiful.

Decent finish with oak, toast and leather and reminiscent red fruits. My last bottle sadly but looking forward to the new vintage from the Champoux vineyard.

Stewed plum, spice and cedar on the nose. Elegant body, medium plus weight, with dark fruit, plum, blackberry, cassis, spice and bitter chocolate. Finishes with fine tannins, nice acidity, and good length. Well integrated and nicely balanced.

Didn't have enough of it to really give it a number rating. Had this at a wine tasting for my wine group. 13 bottles for 15 people. I had only a sip of this one. It felt like an early drinking, simple Cab.

Espie, Art, Steph and Nick at Tavalota. Been a number of years since I tasted this. What a change! Beautiful nose of mixed black fruit and similar palate without overwhelming tannins which were very prominent in the past. Balanced acid and alcohol. Medium to full body. Nice finish. Probably good for a few more years. Popped and poured. Did not need air. Magnum.

Soft supple mature syrah. Mild fruit and reserved nose. In a good place now, nut sure it will get much better or have a long life ahead. Drink now.

PnP w/1 hour decant, back to bottle for service 6 hours later. Clear, deep purple/ruby color, no brown edge. Med/bold nose of proper cab/alco which then drank med body, well integrated, mostly resolved tannins, no rough edges, good flavor intensity, smooth and a decently long finish. Good drinking window but should hold yet for a few more years. Nothing off, great value, $23.

Bought this direct from the vineyard's tasting room a few summers ago. Delicious cab. Nose of dried cherries, plum, pencil shavings. Beautiful structured tannins, balanced, perfect level of acidity for my taste. Medium to full bodied. Long finish. Wish I had more

Similar notes as before. Really nice bottle for the price. Not overly deep/complex but really smooth, nice balance, nice flavors, and fairly long finish. Very easy drinking. I believe this vintage has peaked.

This was really good and kept getting better over the 60 minutes it took to finish the bottle. Lots of chocolate on the palate and a hint of mint on the finish. Wished I had more of this.
