    December 11, 2014 - 13.2% alcohol. This is showing really, really well. Slight bricking with the red cherry color. Lovely bouquet of black cherry and dark earth. Classic Sonoma Coast profile.

    July 10, 2012 - 13.2% alcohol. Drinking beautifully. Black cherry color. A very open bottle of this wine. Soaring nose of black and red cherry, with pretty earth notes behind it. In the mouth, explosive cherry fruit, with a good earth and spice edge and precocious acidity. Strong finish. Delightful. A-

    December 30, 2011 - Strawberry, floral notes, plums, sour cherries. hint of granny smith, a good amount of very Asian spice, hint of cola. Nice supple tannins and the acidity is well balanced.

    July 19, 2011 - 13.3% alcohol and the first vintage from this producer, Suacci Vnyd. is in the Sonoma Coast AVA; smells of sour cherries, cranberries and spice; tastes like a barrel sample with flavors that follow the nose, crisp acidity, a silken texture but not quite knit together yet; everything is in place but this needs a year in the cellar. Maybe the best thing about it is its sense of lightness on the palate; nothing over-extracted or over-done. Lovely wine with grilled salmon and smashed potatoes.
