Quaffable for the masses. The Bordeaux blend adds a little bit more structure to the Cabernet. More herbal than the Ivory Label Cabernet. Verging on being an oak bomb, however. Currently, the wine is holding off the attack of vanilla extract. — 18 days ago
Small production; 170 cases made. Crazy good nose engulfed with dark, sour cherries, dark mulch, wet leaves, and crushed herbs. The color is almost black; stains the glass like I’ve never seen before. Unfortunately, the acidity is landing very, very tart. The sourness overpowers absolutely everything. Cool tasting, though! Amazing people that run the vineyard and winery. Make you feel like you’re at home. — a month ago
Sour bing cherry, inky raspberry sauce, dried leaves, dill, pencil lead, and dirty tobacco. Strong mid-palate that doesn’t get overpowered by oak or heat. Wise choice to age this in a blend of large French casks and new American oak. Develops restrain and youthfulness. Drinking a baby here.

Sour black plums, blueberries, bergamot, wild mint leaves, cocoa, nutmeg, charred hamburger, granite dust, and lithium grease. The acidity is bright enough to cut down the aggressiveness of the tannins. Balanced but displays character throughout the finish. Everything seems to fall in place on the palate. Strong fruit and solid winemaking. — a month ago
