PnP’ed a glass and let sit about an hour. Overwhelming tannins, so I let sit in bottle over night. 24 hours later tried a second glass, and wow! Opened up nicely to reveal deep, dark fruit, smoke, leather and a touch of dark chocolate. THis is drinking beautifully now, but lot’s of structure still left. Glad I have a couple bottles left.

Opened first bottle 24 hours after receiving shipment. Immediate reaction, very closed and awkward. 2 hours in a glass and wow what a difference. Still needs to settle, and very young. But I expect this to only get better. Very happy with this purchase. Believe this will drink much better than it’s price.

- Brick color with slow forming legs - Most of the fruit is gone, and quite a bit of pepper coming forward. Disappears quickly.

Drinking gorgeously right now. Explosive dark fruit layered with earth and fennel. Long finish. Decanted for 1 hour.

Wow! Feeling like this wine has really come into its own now. It has lost some of its rampant herbaciousness and has mellowed, but damn it is finally exhibiting the promise it showed early on.

Incredible! Love this winery. Beautiful and bright with dark cherries, vanilla, mocha, slight menthol, and a long, long finish. A fabulous Howell Mtn cab.

A delightfully graceful syrah with luscious caramel and dark cherry on the palate. Popped this a few hours before dinner and this disappeared fast. Fantastic! Garagiste nailed this one.

This wine seems to have improved quite a bit in the past year. Still not a great deal of depth, but nice cherry cola, earthy with red berries on the palate. Very enjoyable.

This is drinking beautifully right now. Opened and let sit overnight. Had great dark fruit with coffee and dark chocolate. The longer it sat in the glass, it started revealing black and green pepper with some wonderful smokiness.

Like a cream soda on the nose with some interesting tropical flavors, but ultimately too oaky for my taste.
