  • Not fully developed yet, but much more integrated than the bottle we had about a year and a half ago. Smooth, multi layered complexity, good acidity leading to a juicy dark fruit profile, lively tannins.
    Will be hard to keep our hands off the rest. People who appreciate this fruit forward Cali style will love these.
    We get smoky, dark fruit, olive, cola, Syrah flavors followed by the red fruit, spicy Grenache, the Mourvedre/Petite Syrah round it out.
    Served at cellar temp, pop n poured during the Final Four. Opens in an hour or two. Drinks best in the first three to four hours or so and then goes more mineral and tannic.

  • Brawny, but not in an unbalanced way. Needs more time to settle down, but clearly a wine for those who like them big.

  • This wine was drank at Morton's steak house with no decanting. It was clear and quite a deep purple in colour. The nose had quite a bit of grape jam to it along with some caramel. These two smells also were in my tasting notes. I found this wine to be quite low on tannins and acidity and the alcohol level felt lower that it actually is. Quite an enjoyable wine tonight.
