Didn't disappoint. Incredibly well balanced wine. Berries with some earth and minerals on the palate — 8 days ago
Wine comes from a 17-acre portion of the Peyrabon estate in Pauillac. Contains a high proportion of Cab Sauv. Dark Ruby with aromas of black fruit and spice. On the palate flavors of black fruits, oak and vanilla spice. Firm rustic tannins, ending with oak and earthy notes on a medium finish, drinking well now. — 7 days ago

This wine was incredible - prefect in every way - soft silky - Cabernet Sauvignon Precious only made 100 case - 36-42 months in a barrel - amazing acidity structure balance and superb in the complexity category - deep plum/purple color with a soft edge for color - nose gave off a perfume of sweet kirsch, black currants and hints of licorice and cedar. This was complex, sexy, medium weight acidity and length was normal - opulent wine will drink now and I mean why wait it is prefect — 2 months ago
Well done Stephen!!! — 2 months ago
Intense ripe raspberry nose on open. Continued raspberry second nose, slight salinity, charcuterie and rain, complexity more pronounced as it opens up. Silky smooth, medium acid, light in the mouth, medium high alcohol. Clean finish. Gets better as it opens up, jammy fruit bomb on open. — a month ago
This is big, broad and bold. Hundred percent cab aged in seventy-five percent new French Oak. Limited production to just over two hundred cases.
Visibly the wine is a deep ruby color with a tight rim.
The nose is intense with dark fruit, cassis, coffee, dark chocolate, but also earthy humid forest aromas.
The mouthfeel is luxurious and enveloping with the perfectly ripe dark fruit, just a touch of dried spices, vanilla, oak, and a long savory earthy finish. The wine is dry, full bodied, ultra smooth with round but persistent tannings with medium plus alcohol and medium acidity.
It’s extremely surprising to me how approachable the wine is at release. Although, I may know the reason: the cave wine making and cellaring facilities at Porter; I can certainly feel the humidity of the caves in the wine. Praying I can keep my hands off my other couple of bottles for the next 5-10 years, just to see how much better the wine will be then. — a day ago
