    September 19, 2016 - very nice. mid-weight in my view.... drinking these too early in the past has given me a well-structured wine with modest/subtle fruit and the promise of something better. This is probably still too young, but at least beginning to strut.

    Really blossoms with 30 minutes in the glass.

    March 6, 2016 - Killer wine; great acidity, fruit, and balance. Can certainly benefit from a bit more age, but drinking great now!

    February 27, 2016 - Matthiasson with Steve and Jill (Flatiron, SF): Reminds me of the young 2011 Cheval Blanc. Aromatic and a lighter style, but structured with grippy tannins. Precise fruit with complexity in a narrow range (not as outrageously focused as Spottswoode, but really good). I also get some warmer chocolate-covered cassis character (Merlot) and a lush ripe bell pepper (cab franc). It tastes so much like what it is, and has just a hint of oak and Brett spice. Light and intense at the same time (13.2% alcohol. Really really nice - a modern bordeaux with intensity and precision of fruit.

    February 24, 2016 - I have only had 4 or 5 red wines from Matthiasson, but this wine fits exactly into the mold I expect. The fruit is elegant, there is an accent of herbs and an underlying earthy/stony base. The wood is well managed, such that it does not at all obscure the fruit, but rather provides a subtle frame around the wine's painting.

    January 31, 2016 - Indeed a Matthiasson-style wine, with good fruit and purity on the palate, great acidity, and lower alcohol presence. A very pretty wine worth looking out for.
