    May 5, 2019 - Regrettably a disappointment with very muted dark red fruit, an abundance or licorice and non-existent finish. Hoping it was just a bad bottle, or perhaps the suspect '11 vintage, since Home Ranch is normally stellar. Bummed....

    January 27, 2019 - Full and fruity. A dark rich zin. A delightful way to end the weekend.

    December 16, 2018 - I again rate this wine much higher than the average. It has an excellent balance of fruit tannin and taste. The taste lingers nicely. Did a side by side with Seghesio Old Vine 2011. Gave the Home Ranch higher marks. I think this would very good for several years. Unfortunately this was my last 2011 - will compare to 2012 next.

    October 15, 2018 - Seemed to show the slightest bit of browning, but it doesn’t taste old, it’s probably at peak. Mature notes of piney leafy forest floor, but the cherry aromas are bright and powerful. Nice licorice and cigar box spices on the finish. Excellent for the vintage.
