PNP & unleashed the Monster!
Aptly named “Sumo”, BIG Petite Sirah blend;
Owner/Winemaker @Helen Keplinger
Still a baby 👶 in its development...
Upon opening huge drying tannins, makes you check-in again, etc. Really well made, gobs of glycerin & teeth staining black fruit juice with deep concentration. With air becomes more tame & easy drinking. Give it decant & enjoy for many years to come. Cheers! 🍇🍷👍🏻 — 5 days ago
@Mike Smith, @Mark Carter, Great effort!
2012 Carter Weitz Oakville Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon; Same Vineyard as Maybach’s Materium.
PNP> Fabulous, gobs of glycerin, deep purple, integrated tannins, concentrated black/blue fruit profile. Nose like baked blackberry pie!
Wine is in a great place right now.
Pairing with Elk Jerky, per @Mark Carter You Tube interview suggestion from many years ago. Excellent! Cheers! 🍇🍷👍🏻
