Deep red and leggy. Cherry and iodide aroma. Big fruit flavor transitions to chocolate. Bright tannins. Enjoyable today with some air and with food. At $18 great value. Will buy more.

An hour in the decanter and this was ready to go. Big red fruit, long finish, delicious. Drink or hold.

Wow, I forgot about this wine. I bought a few and socked them away and pulled one out tonight. Great old school Napa value.

Cherry and blueberry. Good fruit and acid. Doing well but could still use time.

Cellar Tracker says I have six of these, but this one I drank is the only one I could find. Too bad, this is drinking really well now. Has mellowed to background tannins with blueberry and chocolate. First night was good but second night seemed to gain some weight and extra mouthfeel. Even better. Start drinking now and maybe for another couple years. Hope I find another bottle.

Good wine here. Currant and raspberry aroma. Chocolate and oak and dried fruit flavor with a long finish. Good to drink today with some decanting or hold.

This was a really good wine. Leaf and forest and delicious earthy aroma. A bit meaty even. Flavor adds raspberry and mineral. Not a big fruit bomb in any way, so different from my normal wines. This is good now and will be good down the road.

Yikes this was good. The fruit is strong, but also brining on the aged flavors. Complex and delicious. Has more years in it and delicious now.

Did not take good notes on this but was surely Russian river zin. Big and fruity, creamy. Let this one rest a bit.

Similar tasting to last time except that had about half a bottle remaining for day two and wow what a difference that made. Really developed a lot of great new flavor and complexity overnight.

This needs some time. Good fruit but still a tannic beast. 2024.

Good wine with flavors of chocolate, menthol, cherries, and later green pepper. Starts of thin but buts on some good weight with an hour decant.

Much flavor here. Vanilla, wood, forest, but not a ton of fruit like I expected. A good wine.

16% alcohol and you can feel it. Bright raspberry flavor with cola. Has some acidity and tannin so could last a while. Maybe give this a try in two years.

This is a leather, olive, and meat aroma. On opening was a lot of acidity. mellowed out into a dark fruit, olive, and somewhat salty(?) deliciousness.

This was pretty good. Very rich and full bodied without being cloying. Flowers and perfume predominate. Would like a few more bottles!

Pulled one of the Napas out because I have more than the others, just to give it a try. The tasters who steered me here are right, this is a big delicious fruit experience. Enjoyable today and ten years down the road. Chocolate, plums, vanilla, and some acid on the finish. Looking forward to trying the other vineyard wines.

Yikes this was good. Thick and rich with dark fruit, chocolate, tobacco and leaves. Tannins are in the background and smooth. Getting a little taste of age on it. Drink now or hold.

Very smooth and well put together. Good fruit on the start. Somewhat tannin on the finish. Rounded out after a few hours. Next bottle in 2022.

I did not follow my previous advice. Opened another bottle tonight and its an hour decant was ready to go. Still the smoke and blueberry and some sweet fruit on the start. This was followed by a complex mix of delicious flavors.

Well I hope I have another bottle of this somewhere. Cherry, leather, meat, vanilla and wow. So many good flavors in a big pinot.

This needed an hour in the decanter with swirling to develop some great spicy aroma. Cherry and black pepper dominate, with some tobacco as well. I'd drink now if you have it.

Good solid wine. Licorice, smoke, fruit. Megan liked it more than me. There are wines in this price range I like a lot more than this one. Side note, this is the heaviest wine bottle I've seen in a while.
