    September 23, 2022 - Drinking awesome right now.

    Balinese long pepper showed up…

    December 19, 2021 - Pure bright Merlot Fruit. Better the 2nd day. High acid, could age another 5 - 8 years. Well made wine.

    November 24, 2021 - Just a marvelous Rutherford Merlot with a nose of plumb and cedar. Medium in body and acidity, this wine is magically blended and surprisingly complex on the palet. Flavors of lavender, chocolate, and tobacco with a distinct minerality that is synonymous with the region.

    July 14, 2021 - 4/5 opaque
    Clean
    Fresh blackberry, hint of cedar, raspberry, vanilla on the nose
    Bright ripe but not cooked fruit and cedar on the palate
    Acid plus, beautiful acidity
    Alcohol plus, 13.3% alcohol
    Fine tannin, nicely made to drink now
    A beautiful and bold Napa Merlot
