  • 92. Super smooth after some bottle time

  • Delicious. Couldn't help myself and opened one of these on the heels of a 2019 Caymus. Really held its own, but will do my best to hold the rest and give it some time to develop further.

  • Wonderful aromatics, beautiful floral essence springs from the glass. Deep dark red with flavors of dark fruit, blackberry, and a hint of cola. The tannins are tight in this wine and the acidity provided a lively freshness to the wine. Medium+ finish. Very nice!

  • This was a flyer on my part and it was a good one!

    Although a tad young this wine is punching way above its weight especially at this price point. Retail around $60 which is not cheap its drinking like a $120+ bottle of Cabernet. Sleeper keeps their vineyards under wraps but it seems to be of high quality.

    Opened and decanted for an hour and then enjoyed over several hours. Dark purple with a nose of black fruit, black current and elements of leather and spice, quite intoxicating.

    On the palate this guy is lush and packed with black fruits and a decent amount of oak. Well balanced but more than enough acids and tannin to keep this bottle evolving for the next 5 to 8 years.

  • This bottle was a pleasant surprise. Following the Caymus, this young pup held its own. Blueberry and blackberry with a touch of oak on the nose, the palate is lush and silky, fruit driven with black fruit predominant. Tannins are thick and chewy. Oak is there but well balanced. LB won't reveal the wineries in their Sleeper program, but safe to say side by side with Caymus, it's a valley floor neighbor. $59
