    Not much on the nose buck a knockout in the mouth. Wow.

    Caramel and graphite on the pallet.

    Legs that go for a good 20 seconds.

    Starts small but grows through the pallet and leaves you wanting more...like the one that got away...

    Wish I had many more bottles right now.

    May 8, 2020 - Intense blue-black fruit, with prunes, cassis, licorice, and tobacco. Smooth tannins, silky acidity, and a medium finish. Vibrant after a two-hour decant, it was better and more integrated on day two, suggesting good years ahead.

    July 28, 2019 - Deep purple hue. Black fruit on the nose. No doubting Howell Mountain fruit. Hint of vanilla, and some spice. Silky smooth tannins, but I found the finish to have a bit of heat. (On day 2 the wine was fully integrated and the heat had mellowed). Well balanced and well made wine, despite all this I would drink in the next 5 years.
