    August 24, 2016 - 12.5% abv. Medium-dark ruby, moderate aromatics. Palate more evocative of earth, minerality and spice than Pinot fruit. Light on its feet, yet good depth and length. I need to try this again in 3-5 years.

    November 19, 2015 - Rhys @ QCH (Quality Chop House, London): A little initial reduction lifts. Very mellow and smooth. Elegant. Some depth. Very harmonious. ****

    June 8, 2015 - This is still fresh and primary with a slick and glossy texture, though without the "dialed up to 11" fruit intensity of the Swan Terrace. It was enjoyable right out of the gate and a very tasty drink but right now there isn't much more going on than the pure fruit.

    April 6, 2015 - This was what I thought was a 2010 Bearwallow. It is actually the Home...

    A beautiful follow to the 2012 MacDugal Ranch from Kutch. This is darker, but still perceptually red fruited and just as delicious. It might be a little deeper and more complex. Awesome wine.

    I realize I am out of these already and wish I had a couple to age. Hopefully Kevin and Jeff will release some these later from their library... and forget that I have had a tough time with their 2010 Horseshoe Chardonay on the same night!
