The whole clusters take center stage. Savory long finish. Clove, white pepper, cinnamon intertwined with dark, just-underripe berry. Very curious what some lengthy cellar time will reveal.

Day 1 was baking spice, vanilla (oak) and juicy ripe berry. Day two much better. Oaky profile calmed down. Still a big blueberry pie type profile. Not sure where this goes from here.

World class cab. Really nice balance of fruit and freshness. A really great example of Columbia Valley premier wines. Should evolve for some time.

Cherry, black pepper and cola. Not overly ripe. Subtle floral fragrance. Very nice and plenty of life left.

Blueberry and oak. Day 2. Blueberry cedar/oak. This ontogeny ranks as one of the least I have had in years. Maybe some time in the bottle will chill it out from the oaky dominance

More disappointed with this vintage each time I try it. Bitter and bland. Minimal fruit.

Rasberry, rose petal, tea leaves in a medium weight Pinot. I liked the more restrained fruit that gave way to other herbeous flavors.

Powerful and fruit forward with ample structure to last many more years. After two hours I think it’s solid but unremarkable

Really nice. Fruit with no hard edges. Tartness on the long finish. Definitely has that Washington cab character.

Pleasant surprise based on mixed reviews and comments. Somewhat delicate for 2012 Napa with red and blue fruit. Hints of graphite. Just entering part ii of its evolution.

Pop and pour was a green and vegetal. Day 2 was much better as the green dominance blew off. I still think a longer rest is needed for this wine to improve.

Savory and tart. A bit closed and really quite tight even on day 2. I plan on letting my last bottle sit for several more years. Med weight.

Not really what I’m used to with sea smoke. This wine is fading fast IMO. Some red fruits give way to a short tart finish. Not a lot here to keep me interested.

Over two days. Cherry, cigar box, herbs. Medium weight. No bricking. Nice. Tannins and acidity are very much present for a long life ahead.

Delicate with red fruit and sweet tannins. A hint of oak. Really nice wine that delivers nicely balanced fruit and acidity. Drink now.

Fruit forward Napa cab with no remarkable characteristics. Some tannins still there suggesting some more aging potential but I’m Not sure that will make much difference.

Ok but what should you expect from a “value” burgundy? Maybe better down the road but I’m not going to hold my breath.

Butterscotch and honeysuckle with some tartness on the finish. The flavors varied with time post opening and added plenty of interest.

It took a few hours to really start to be expressive. Very much older world with dark fruits underbrush and dried herbs. Very nice and probably has more to offer with some time

Past it’s prime. I was hoping for something interesting but the fruit faded and there was nothing else there.

Best CVr I’ve had. Not too over the top ripe. Some oak that mellowed with time. Otherwise this is a delicate version of cvr with cherries and sweet tea. Drink now

Medium body with black cherry and some underbrush. Still tannic and will need quite a few years to calm down. We will see.

Decanted a few hours. Black cherry, mocha and licorice. A nice wine that should improve over the next few years.

Nose of mushroom, tilled earth and static charge (like the air after a lightening storm). Cherry, iron, and herbs combine nicely on a fairly long finish. Seems like some serious bottle variation based on prior notes posted here. No green notes for me.

Last tasted 2017. It was worth waiting. This wine has come together. The dark fruit has taken on some depth. Tertiary flavors of sage and oregano compliment a moderately spicy finish. Drink up.

It took a long while to open slightly. Lavender, black cherry, graphite with long and somewhat tart finish. I think this may be interesting many years from now. But today it is a solid wine after a long decant.

Wait a day after opening. Very tight the first night Second night was much more approachable. Graphite, cranberry, Dark cherry all wrapped up In a dry finish. This can age for some time

Showing some maturity since last rate in 2017 but just a super special wine.

Disappointing after waiting. There’s nothing interesting about this wine. Not bad but if your looking for some complexity and nuance it’s just not there IMO.

Just not that interesting. Savory and one dimensional. Been sitting on this hoping for some improvement.
