Decant for sediment and pour (lots of chunky/fine sediment). A remarkable murky garnet with bricking. On the nose: Intoxicating notes of stewed dark fruit, green bell pepper, sweet vanilla, menthol, worn leather, dried herbs. Taste: soft, smooth, delicate, balanced wine with prune, cedar, graphite, and a sweet spice tobacco medium plus finish. YUM!!! Still holding its own and fun to drink and discuss tonight.

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.
Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Showing black fruits with earth, oak, spices, coffee, dark chocolates, vegetables, light vanilla, herbs and peppercorn.
Starting to drink nicely now. Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature properly.
Good right out of the bottle, but very tight. Needs 3 hours to open up, but it finished too quickly.
Aged in (25% new) American oak barrels for 14 months.
14.4% alcohol by volume.

Starts off with cherries, plums and fig. Elegant, and after opening up for awhile a little brightness pokes through the dry tannins. Still very young to drink for this 2021 vintage. — 3 days ago
Sipping Fine Wine
Blend of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petite Verdot and 1% Merlot, deep Ruby with aromas of Napa Valley classic Cabernet Sauvignon's pronounced aromas of black cherry, cassis, and vanilla hits your glass. Flavors of ripe blackberry, baked black fruit, strawberry, and a touch of espresso, balanced acidity. Fine tannins, long finish ending with fruit, cedar and a touch of herb mint. Will benefit from some short aging. — 25 days ago
