    April 22, 2019 - Bold, rich, viscous, layered, long, powerful, and hedonistic with an aromatic and flavor signature of purple/black berries, black licorice, lavender, and peppery spices. 15.5% abv.

    March 3, 2019 - Opened 2 hrs before drinking. Tastes of earth, red fruit, cedar and lots of pepper. The pepper flavor mellowed out after about 3hrs. Smooth lasting finish. Very enjoyable zin that paired nicely with red meat.

    January 12, 2019 - tasting room pour.
    darker violet color. Smooth body with rich fruitiness. Primary at this point but I'm holding up hopes given the Howell Mountain pedigree that it'll become more complex with time. 90 pts

  • tomoem Does not like this wine:

    December 24, 2018 - Hmmmm.... Not what I was expecting. Thin and slightly watery with an acidic profile to the mouthfeel. I opened this 12 hours prior to our Christmas dinner and given the line-up tomorrow only can hope that this improves.

    Tonight it is dominated by cloves, some blueberry fruit and an overly acidic mouthfeel which makes me think that the wine is shot. The cork was soaked 3/4 of the way through and that is weird for a 16' only 2 years old.

    I will re-post tomorrow. No score tonight
