The good news is this wasn’t showing hot despite 14.5 degrees. Bad news was while it has dropped some tannin it basically showed no development. Some vanilla, quite sweet plum and cassis fruit, fruity but a bit dull. B-
Jordyn Against Humanity: Decanted 2 hours. Not a strong nose, but the restrained mixed berry, blue Curaçao, and mocha aromas hint at a ripe, modern style. The palate is ripe and juicy, like Hi-C tropical fruit punch, with dark chocolate, vanilla cream, and blueberry jam. Tons of fruit, full-bodied, and tasty, but it's a bit too confected. Drink now-2017.
Whoa -- found 2 bottles and so glad I did. The intensity is very high -- this wine has stepped up significantly. It's still young, and only getting better. Definitely red fruit, but dark fruit, chewy tannins, smoke, and an above average finish. It will make you love Chappellet and Pritchard Hill!
Still holding nicely so drink up. Nice dark color with blackberry, plum and cherry on the nose and on the pallet. Dark chocolate adds to the fruit. The mouth feel is full and smooth with a long finish. I didn’t get the vanilla that others talked about. It may be integrating or fading or maybe it’s just me. —60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot—
