  • If you’re a little patient, I mean like no less than a 1.5 hour decant, you’ll get past the strong oak overtones of vanilla that Chris notes. The nose becomes increasingly floral. I get dried violets. It’s a huge wine through and through - not for the classical palate. It shows nice dark fruit up front with good acid - boysenberry maybe. The tannins only soften slightly after decant, and it has floral notes and chalk in the long, long finish.

  • 2018 LPV Blind Tasting: VV, Carter, Fait Main, Quivet and B Cellars (Lang's): 2018 LPV blind tasting. Wines: Vice Versa, Carter La Verdad, Quivet, Fait Main and B Cellars. Six total tasters. All wines decanted 3+ hours.

    The B Cellars came in 3rd. Lord almighty you better love vanilla and oak to enjoy this wine. Easily the most polarizing of the group. Some loved the oak, and others (like me), struggled with how it overwhelmed the rest of the wine. This is super full bodied with lots of depth of flavor and a huge finish. It loses some points for lack of balance and overall focus. Some of the oak will likely integrate and blow off over time.
