Wine lover and collector on the east coast.
Gorgeous nose of warm berry bramble. Big mountain berries palate with vanilla and an amazing mineral finish that ends with a kiss of chocolate covered cherry. This is really great juice. Will get better with age although the formidable tannins are approachable now. Nice hidden gem. — 9 months ago
All the components are here. Lucious nose of dark berries, espresso and violets. Well integrated palate with similar notes as well as a kiss of cocoa at the end from the merlot heavy blend. Finish goes on with an attractive drag of minerality — 10 months ago
Fun day of tasting with a master som and some others from the wine and restaurant industry. So went deep into my cellar. This was the star. Beat out a haut brion and some other beasts. This was very much alive with plenty of cherries and red fruit. Yet it was delicate with beautifully aged tannins and a kiss of sugar plum at the end. Not dried out or herbal at all. Some notes of saddle leather but they were secondary to the fruit. — 9 months ago
