It appears the Brett is out. Barnyard nose is starting to take over. Right now, it's a great lead in to the cherry aromas. Similar flavors. If you haven't had a bottle recently, I'd pop one open to gauge the development of your particular stash.
Tasted at winery in vertical with 09 and 11. Compared to those two vintages, this is the winner, but overall it's clear they're pouring their most basic wines. This year had brighter fruit notes and a reasonable amount of acid, however the fruit was not nearly as big as some other wines I've seen. Gentle tannins and a fairly subtle, elegant finish (but not particularly memorable or long).
For a $15 tasting fee, I don't feel like I got a very good impression of what this winery can do. Nothing they showed was amazing, so I didn't buy anything (duh). These Dundee AVA wines would be reasonable daily drinkers at $25, but at $45 they seem overpriced.
