    September 17, 2021 - Bordeaux 2000 Horizontal (KOGS): Extremely intense but packed with coconut and vanilla. Dense in its fruit core and with a touch of sweetness.
    An amazing wine!

    April 30, 2021 - Unico + BBQ Makes for Quite the Night (Los Olivos, CA): The youngest of our vertical, and it showed not only in the dominance of the oak, but also (perhaps) stylistically: just a bit more ripe, a bit less complex and distinctive, somehow. No faults as such, and these are tiny criticisms as the wine was flat-out delicious, especially after 2+ hours in the glass. Dried red fruit, spice and mint notes. The texture lacked that glycerined concentration I expected at this relatively youthful age.

    April 17, 2021 - Dark, musky maroon color. White oak, tar, raspberry, gravelly notes, leather and crushed nuts. Reminds us of walking into a winery’s barrel cave with that amazing smell. Mocha, dark red fruits, mushrooms and cassis all roll slowly around the mouth. Really beautiful wine with many years to enjoy.

    p.s. Mediterranean ground turkey wraps with kapusta.

    October 25, 2020 - Majestic wine. Still young. A very solid core of fruit, big showing with mocca, tar, blackcurrant, chocolate galore, the the balance is impeccable. gets better in the glass ...

    August 27, 2020 - Decanted 1+ hour. Improved during the dinner. Still young (as expected). I would recommend to decant it at least for 2 hours or (better) wait 5 more years. 93-94 pts. at the moment.
