Amateur aficionado and lover of fine wine from around the world, especially WA State, California, France, Spain and Italy.
Big and ripe blue fruits with a very nice finish. Would like to rate this higher, but it's just too over the top with ripeness, a lack of structure and 15.2% abv that's just too hot. Good flavors, but too much of everything else, except a supporting structure. — a month ago
2014 vintage. This wine's potential is hidden in a shroud of structure that needs a lot of cellar time and/or an extended decant. Intense red and blue fruits bursting with energy and depth. Rating reflects current time, but with significant upside potential. Should be great in 2+ years. — 2 months ago
