Big, good fruit. Drank over 2 hours but didn’t open up much. Only 14.5% by volume but tasted much hotter.

Really developed nicely as it opened up over an hour. Jammy initially, but ended with an excellent finish. Almost a 92.

Huge wine, but ready for prime time. PnP. Delicious. Big fruit, but tannins not overwhelming.

With some oxygen on the second day it’s fantastic. Hits way above its QPR.

Really great. PnP, but drank over about an hour and a half. Tremendous near the end. Should have decanted first 30 min. Great fruit, wonderful finish. As said before, wish I had more.

Needs a couple hours to fully open up, but once there, great fruit, great qpr, batting way above it’s level for the price point. Will buy against

PNP. Tight on opening but drank over 1.5 hours and opened up considerably. Soft, with cherry, earthy notes. A little pricey especially given the source of the grapes (Mendocino County). Pretty good effort from the brothers.

Decanted for an hour, drank over another 1.5 hours. Improved with air. Could stand a few years to cellar, but has a lot of great fruit and great potential. Another great effort from the Buoncristiani brothers.

Decanted for 1.5 hours... continued to open up over the next 2 hours in which it was consumed. Big Merlot, great fruit, tremendous finish. Let it lay down for another 5 years at least.

Decanted for an hour. Amazing how big the tannins were initially and how it opened up over the course of a further two hours. Fantastically made wine.

This has changed from my original tasting. It has mellowed out significantly and it flattens out in the end. Drink now or I fear it will only lose more finish. It’s good, but it’s not great as it once was....

First night it was right and wound up. Sidetracked the second night and got back to it the third night... where it had opened up and really showed it’s true franc character. If opening now decant for at least 2 hours. Great fruit. Would buy again.
