  • I'm giving a slightly higher rating due to how interesting and unique this wine is. At first I thought it was disjointed, but after several hours i realized it's just the unique profile. Huge nose of eucalyptus, saline and dark fruit that carrys over to the palate with a high acid tart salinity masking some still considerable tannins. A big dark complex wine, but that salinity acidic component is dominant. I enjoyed it overall.

  • PnP. This had some considerable tannic weight that did soften with air. I liked it both early and late. Big black fruit, charcoal, chocolate. Somehow I expected this to be more old world, but I agree with D.T.: This is Napa.

  • Aromas of black fruits (black currant/blackberry/black cherry), red licorice and a bit of herbs. The aromas match, and add a bit of red fruit and a fair amount of earth towards the finish. Classic Napa structure with medium acid, medium+ tannins and a medium finish. The structural elements are still integrating. Drinking well now with air, it may age a bit more and will likely least a minimum of 5 more years.

  • Huge nose on opening. Decanted for two hours and drank over the next two hours. Poured ruby with burnt orange hues. Significant bricking. This was slightly disjointed and may need more time. Black fruit with chocolate. Harsh mid palate with deeper finish but seemed old at the end.
