Very young and will drastically improve with age. Inky dark color, graphite and menthol with tons of dark fruit. Tannins deep but mellow over decanting time. Long finish of 40 plus seconds

First red wine of 2022 did not disappoint. Light sediment in bottle. Almost opaque in color with initial graphite, dark fruit and wet stones on the nose. Opened beautifully over 90 minutes in bottle and glass. 40 second plus finish.

Had no fruit, cork seemed odd when it came out of bottle and tasted off

Tons of citrus - lemon, tangerine and grapefruit. Great finish, and clean, crisp and bright throughout. Well balanced and pairs well with fish and even spicy Thai dishes

Ok
Not much fruit and lack of nose keep it from being anything more than just interesting

Dark and opaque. Floral notes, blackberry and light black pepper and smoky notes. Medium weight, tannins have relaxed and not overpowering. 30-45 second finish which was outstanding

Very big wine, and will improve over time. Dark red and almost opaque color. Pencil shavings, roses and dark fruits. Lasting finish and not as tannic as it was at winery.

Wanted to try and wine did not disappoint. Very approachable and youthful, with deep red color and dark fruits immediately. Light floral notes on the back end, and definitely get a nice 30-40 second finish even at this young stage. Should only get better

Lemony notes with bright citrus. Starbright and pale yellow in color. Very fresh, with green apple on the back end. Crisp and very clean finish, and paired beautifully with salmon and halibut

Almost opaque in color. Medium fruits but this is a big wine. Wine has slightly muted fruit but opened up beautifully after a 24 hour decant. HEfty in body, tannins have dropped slightly and finish was of older fruit but enjoyable

Received this week and wanted to check in early on the wine. Very fruit forward, with abundant red and dark fruits. Wine will definitely improve over the next few years, but very enjoyable and improved over the 90 minutes it was open

Almost black in color. Great mountain fruit and opened up beautifully over a two hour decant. Dark fruits, wet rocks and graphite. 30-40 second decant with a super full mouth feel. Already well balanced and in my estimation, it will only get better

Wine has matured and the tannins have relaxed. Deep inky color, medium to full mouth feel, with notes of tar, pencil lead and mature dark fruit. Medium to lasting finish - 20-30 second finish.

Not a typical CA Chardonnay. There are some tropical notes and a lot less oak than I expected. Great yellow color, great full mouth feel and a nice clean finish

Youthful wine with great fruit. Will only get better with time and the tannins really showed after about one hour in the glass. Medium body so far and finish lasted about 30-45 seconds.
