    January 5, 2019 - Smooth complex plum and dark berry fruit with a slight hint of cherry. Decanted bottle and enjoyed over a 2 hour meal. Excellent with short ribs. 2011 vintage was down a bit but this higher elevation wine came out nice.

    December 15, 2018 - Aromas of violets and floral. Kirsch present with flavors of blackberry, black cherry, cola. Tight tannins, but smooth, well rounded. Delicious wine. Impressive.

    December 31, 2017 - Really well balanced, but strong tannin and excellent finish. Great wine.

    March 3, 2017 - Great balance and body. One of the best 2011 I have had. Not to "hot" but perfectly balanced with a peppercorn steak

    December 9, 2016 - Dark and inky with edgy aromas of black cherry, plum and sulfur. Somewhat disjointed at the moment, it is a bit rough with attractive boysenberry, black cherry and tart cherry fruit with a finely drying tannin structure evolving to a relatively tasty and medium length finish. The distinctive Howell mountain fruit is here, the structure doesn't quite hold together, and the acids are a bit strong for the tannins. I would like to think this will evolve into a complex, multi-layered example of this vintage, but not holding out hope. Nevertheless, given the acidity, let it lay for a couple more years.
