Notes of pear, apple and wet stone lead the way with a creamy texture. Layers of goodness here. Time in the bottle has allowed the acidity to come in balance. Wonderful juice!

Dark red fruit and tree bark meld together in this remarkably balanced Pinot Noir. The acidity has settled down nicely. Pleasing aromatics and good complexity. Drink over the next three years. Good juice.

Red and blue fruit are complemented by spring flowers, unsmoked cigar notes and tilled soil. Soft tannins adds some backbone, but they are nicely integrated. Good juice!

After a two hour decant, the wine expressed wonderful red fruit notes. The wood is now well integrated. Great texture and expressive nose. Much more elegant that the first bottle two years ago. Good juice

This wine has turned into a gem! The depth of the wine and the layers of goodness touches the palate with grace and excitement. Red and blue fruit are in the background, but are still apart of the show. The acidity has kept this wine stable. What a pleasant surprise! Great juice!

Red fruit, bitter chocolate and river rock are all present here. Surprisingly delicious! Good weight and texture. The tannins could soften a bit more, but this is a good wine for the money. Enjoyable.

Drinking like a mid weight right bank Bordeaux. Red fruit, river rock and duty tannins create a wine of sheer pleasure. A well balanced and good textured wine that will drink well over the next rthree to five years.

This wine is evolving nicely. Dominated by red fruit in the style of a mid weight Right Bank wine. There is an earthy component that balances the fruit nicely. Fresh flowers and mineral notes are present as well. I believe it’s better days are still ahead.

Red and black fruit have the profile of California. The oak provides a balanced influence of spice. Lightroom in its feet. This a good iteration, but not as good as previous vintages. Drink up.

After a one hour decant the wine showed characteristics of dark fruit, spring flowers, a touch of pepper and black olives. Medium weight, good texture and nose. This wine needs a hand full of years be evolve. It has all the right parts.

Dark fruit, beef blood and garrigue are well balanced in this Washington Syrah. It has northern Rhône characteristics, but with a little more weight. Wonderful texture and depth. This wine will continue to evolve over the next five years or so. Great juice!

Red fruit sneaks in an appearance mid way through the bottle. Dried mushrooms, earth and a touch of barnyard aromas lead the way. Wonderful texture and depth. An intellectual wine in every way. This wine has more complexity than the last time. It still has more upside. Good juice!

This wine has gained a treat deal of weight and complex since the last time I tasted it. Dark fruit, Christmas spice and garrigue dance in rhythm. Silky smooth texture with aromatics that make your brain sing. This wine has the “x” factor I all look to find. Good juice!

Dark red fruit, medium oak influence, lavender and orange rind are well packaged in this wonderful Pinot Noir. This wine could have used a little decanting, as it continued to open up through the very last glass. Well balanced and such a joy to consume. Good juice!!!

Stone fruit and some spice from what feels like a mild oak influence. Very atypical from a wine from this site. Different but enjoyable. It is missing the characteristics of a top flight premier cru.

Dark as midnight out in the country. Dark fruit, underbrush and touch of iron ore gracefully cross the palate. Wonderful texture and depth. Layers of complexity give this the “x” factor. Everything is in balance. Great juice!

Blue and black fruit notes are mixed with pencil shavings, graphite and tobacco. This is an old school Cabernet at its finest. Layers upon layers of goofiness. The alcohol is way in the background. Great juice!

A very unique Chardonnay from down under. Apple, pear and beeswax notes appear to take center stage. There is a light smokiness and accents from the near neutral wood that a regal touch. I am starting to think that this wine has the acidity and structure to continue to evolve over the next five years. Great juice!
