  • Earthy nose, rich color. Surprisingly lively wine, tanins have all mellowed, but it's got a nice toastyness, with oak and tobacco. Finish is a bit light.

  • Purchased this bottle at Bern's Steakhouse in Tampa. Nose: medium-high toastiness and rich caramel and toffee releasing after half hour of being opened. Mouthfeel became more pronounced and satisfying after an hour with pralines becoming present. Blackberry fruit and spice rounded out throughout the meal and was just delicious! NOTE: This is actually designated as Esola Ranch vineyard in the Shenandoah Valley AVA and I have submitted a proposed change to this entry.
