Other notes nail this - going to be very good. Day 3 showed the best.

Two hour decant. Shared with friends at Thea. Another fantastic example of what Peay is producing.

The sediment was there as noted by others, but this was a very typical Mark Herold effort.

I completely agree with King Cab's tasting notes. This was one of those wines, especially after reading his notes, that I was very interested in trying. The wine did not disappoint and was one of those "experiences" that I will long remember.

The wine is very well balanced and the nose opens up immediately to blueberries and some red berries with just the right amount of smokiness. There is great acidity and a truly long finish. I am just sorry I only purchased two ...

Good minerality and acidity, pear and some hints of lemon. Definitely a good wine on a weeknight.

An excellent wine for the price. Strawberry and cherry with some minerality. Very well balanced and a great long finish.

Very jammy, but has good balance. Blackberry, vanilla, pepper make this a wine ready to drink and pour without much effort.

Definitely on the young side, but as it opened up, it was vintage Mark Herold.

Decanted for 1 hour. Drinking well. Dark fruit, blackberry, pepper. Really enjoyed it and not hot at all.

More of a fruit forward and lighter side cab. Good flavors of blueberry, cherry, with a hint of earthiness.
