    May 3, 2014 - A 50/50 blend of Cab and Malbec. At first, the Cab (along with the oak) is a little obtrusive. But, after an hour or so, the wine is well integrated, sumptuous, and well balanced. Nice dark fruit flavors, very nice savory components at mid-palate, and tasty long finish.

    July 4, 2013 - Almost at the end of our case. This has been a consistent performer. Smooth dark fruit drinking well with and without food.

    June 9, 2013 - Dark ruby color. Cherry, vanilla oak, and blossoms on the nose. Lots of dark chocolate and tobacco make for an intense palate that can be enjoyed out of the bottle or mitigated with a couple hours in the decanter. Tobacco finish lingers with nice acidity. An hour or more in the decanter recommended to tame this "Mendocino vigoroso."
