    Dark fruit, black pepper, spice, and a 30 second finish. Delicious!

    Still in a great place and drinking very well.

    August 10, 2021 - I found this wine dry, tannic, and brooding, similar in feel to serious Italian reds. It was nothing like Turley’s Pesenti (Paso Robles) zins that I am more accustomed to drinking. It was not even like the 2012 vintage of this same wine, which I am drinking right now, and which is much more fruit forward. I didn’t know what to make of it — whether it is past its prime because the fruit has already dissipated, or whether it will improve as it unfolds with more bottle age. I have optimism about the latter.

    May 9, 2020 - Big and bold but there’s a spicy, peppery zing that really sets this over the top. Love it!
