    March 8, 2019 - Vibrant and fresh 10 years in. Impressive intensity. With three hours of air it’s going strong, showing spice, acidity, muted tannins and a mix of dark and red flavors. Strong finish too. More sinewy than muscle bound, an impressive show of Cali winemaking. I think the scores here nail it.

    November 20, 2018 - I love the big rich CA style. However, I agree with the last review that this was over the top. Tastes as if it has been enriched by a spinning cone flavor adjustment. Slightly unnatural, but admittedly still enjoyable.

    December 27, 2016 - Intense nose of dark berries, licorice, tobacco, and a bit of smoke. Concentrated on the palate with plums, dark fruit, and black berries. Long finish. Excellent wine, but a bit over the top.

    August 9, 2014 - Nose of crushed boysenberries and licorice. This wine would pair great with venison but tonight it's joining a Akaushi rib eye with balsamic and olive oil grilled onions. Great finish with soft oak, tar and Geranium pepper. I don't see this wine evolving into something worth waiting for. Drink and be rewarded now. Tasted Aug. 9,2014..
