    February 17, 2018 - Last bottle from a few bought direct at the vineyard. Bought this after a visit with the winemaker. Drank over 2 nights...

    From prior notes:"Nose is dark fruit, mushroom, earth, bacon fat. Palate of vibrant dark fruits, herbs and floral notes..." Still drinking well, smooth texture with nice fruit through mid palate.

    An interesting experiment that wound up paying off. Nice wine..not likely to improve from here. Would drink in next couple years

    May 6, 2015 - I thought this might be a "worst of both worlds" experiment, but it is surprisingly a relative success. It doesn't have the full blown decadent California fruit or the terror driven Burgundy notes, but it strikes a nice balance and I think its real strength lies in the silky mouth feel. This still has a good amount of tannin and acidity and I think this could develop more with time. I'm not sure about the whole inter-country blend as more than a novelty, but this was pretty solid.

    March 14, 2015 - Splash decanted and drank over two hours. Bought this after a visit with the winemaker. Last few bottles available, she was nice enough to let us buy them. Interesting concept - and she seemed to pull off a unique wine...

    Nose is dark fruit, mushroom, earth, bacon fat. Palate of vibrant dark fruits, herbs and floral notes.

    Seems the experiment paid off...hard to score this wine...very nice
