  • Popped and poured. Nice fruit profile with a bit of a sharp edge on the finish. Enjoyed this more than my last bottle.

  • Popped and poured, drank over 2 nights, refrigerated in between. Nose is pleasing: savory dark fruit predominant. On the palate, not as exciting. Fruit sort of evaporates quickly, with finish a bit tart. Didn't dislike it, but didn't love. Am hopeful the next 2 bottles age well.

  • The cork was fine, no problems with the bottle that I could tell. I really wanted to like this bottle, considering the poor showing last year from another bottle. It wasn't good the first day, didn't improve the second day, got dumped the third day. Very muted nose. The back end of this just got too pruney, bitter, bad tasting. My wife couldn't get past a 2nd taste either night. Yeesh, hoping for better from the other vineyard bottles. Bottles direct from winery.

  • Decanted three hours.
    Took a bit of coaxing to get the aromas from the glass. Not quite as fragrant as I'd expect.
    Subtle smoke and spice notes with some dark anise and touches of fresh road tar, and charred meat.
    The palate is more expressive but still really soft and lower in complexity than I'd expect.
    Dark berries, some baking spice and gray pepper corns. Moderate alcohol and acidity. Very balanced, very smooth.
    Just unfortunate the nose was so muted.

  • This wine is great right now but will be phenomenal in a few years. This wine is built like an ogre, many many layers. This wine starts off with olives, bloody meat, and blackberries. As the wine breathes the the raw meat becomes a nice juicy grilled steak, with the dark fruits coming forward a little bit more. After 3 hours in the glass the wine is singing with everything in balance with the red and black fruits sharing the palatte with refined tannins balancing the acid. The next day just added more depth to the wine. I recommend doing a slow-ox on this wine for 3-4 hours within the next year. However the journey was amazing to get to that conclusion. Enjoy!
