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.

Rich and delicious, chocolate, raspberry, smooth tannins. Gets better as the night goes on. Drink now with a decant or hold.

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!

Consistent with previous notes and maybe smoothing out just a little more.

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.

This was a great surprise. Bought at the tasting room a few years ago. Fruit, chocolate, smooth tannins with a touch of alcohol on the finish. Delicious.

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.

Continues to be a big fruit explosion. Decant for two hours and enjoy.

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.

This is great QPR. And delicious regardless of price. Drinking well now, so have at it. Fruit, smoke, tobacco. Medium body.

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.

Nice fruity flavor with a bit of spice. Sit on this for a few years.

This was something else. A swirl of flavors including spices like cardamom and cinnamon, cherries, chocolate and coffee. Also a big plank of oak. Give it a several hour decant or more years in the bottle.

Let this one air out two hours. Starts fruity but thin. Gains some weight on airing. Blueberry, coffee, leaves, and a wack of tannin.

This was good. Maybe a little lighter than I hoped for but I’d buy again. Hang on to this a few more years.

This was really good. Deep purple. oak, vanilla, chocolate aroma. Fruit, vanilla with tannins. Drank well tonight from the get go, even better as the night rolled on. Drink now or hold, will be good for ten + years.

This was good, better after open three hours. Needs some open time for the fruit to settle down.
