Still getting better. 3 hour decant. Good amount of black licorice and strong tannins.

Maybe too young. Maybe it need a longer decant. Not enough fruit and tons of tannins

Decanted for two hours and put back into the bottle. Nose was dark and rich. The wine was tight for almost an hour after pouring in the the glass. Once it finally opened it was deep and rich, but the finish was too quick.

Interesting wine. Nose reminds me of France or even Australia more than Napa. Spicy bell pepper and not enough fruit. Not bad by any means and change from the more dominant fruit wines I have been drinking. Not a reorder for me at the WTSO 22.99 price or even their new 19.99 price. The wine maker says he takes his style from Right Bank, which makes sense after tasting this. From what I understand, this wine is no longer in production.

Last of my 6 bottles. Again showing its age. Some interesting dark raisin floors and almost a hint of a port like nose.

Maybe an off bottle. Mint/menthol nose and mint and menthonly flavors. Reminded more of an Australian cab than something from Washington..

Really nothing remarkable. A lot of green fruit, minimal tannins and not much going on. Maybe I got a bad batch? But for 12 bucks 🤷‍♂️

2.5 hour decant. Bright nose. Soft, easy drinking cab. Good change of pace from the big cabs, which I prefer. Party/family/sharing wine for sure!

Little over 2 years since my last bottle. Much better this time around. More integrated, more dark fruit. Not a big win and tannins are still strong. 90+

Better this time around. Light blackberry nose and good integrated medium fruit on the palate. Some hints of dark fruit. A great sipper by itself. A fair deal at LB’s price of $20, but not a rebuy for me.

After finishing the box, this is not a rebuy. Yes it is box wine, but its just bland. Not offensive at all, just not good enough to spend $88 on two boxes...

I must have an off bottle, cause this tastes past peak. Burnt prune/raising flavors. Hopefully my second bottles shows better.

First couple glasses from the box. Not a lot on the nose. Taste is extremely light. Not a lot of fruit and light tannins. Easy drinking for sure, but for $44 a box there are better deals out there. This would be a great summer time red out on the patio with your normal Italian spread. Updates to come…

Last of my 4 bottles and this one was the best. Popped the cork in the morning and decanted in the afternoon for around 3 hours.

I was really excited when I got this wine from LB. The blend is unknown, but I risked it anyway. After reading the first review I was a little disappointed. If I was directing Sideways, the line would have went, “I am not drinking any f*****g Pinot!” Not a Pinot fan…. However this wine was really good, went really well with homemade pizza. Mild nose and light on the palette. The finish however is darker than expected with good fruit. It ain’t no Pinot thankfully. Not sure how time will help this one, but 5 more bottles to go and I won’t rush them.

Needs a lot of air. Even after almost 2 hour decant the noise was hot. Once it opened up it was rich with a dark fruit finish.

For me this is a very balanced wine, got everything I like in Italian wines.

Last of the frozen bottle fiasco from WTSO (WTSO took care of the issue with their great customer service). Again not sure how the cold effected the wine. This time around it was a middle of the road Chianti.

Winery says to drink this vintage this year. I would agree. It has some good dark fruit, but it is showing too much age.

I don’t have good luck with Chilean cabs, but this was pretty good. Not much of a nose, but good smooth tannins with a medium fruit finish. Not sure how time will effect this wine, but it seems to me this one should be drank sooner than later.
