The 15’ bottling sees Petit Verdot leading this Bordeaux blend at 32%, with 26% CS, 26% Merlot, 13% CF, and 3% Malbec.
Complex and deep nose of blackberry, cassis, fig, dry pine cone, dark soy source, butterscotch, thyme, black pepper, with hint of violet. The palate, while delicious and smooth, lacks the depth I expected. Finely grained tannins lead to a long peppery finish.

Reviewing this one way after the fact but I recall it being really good... this guy used to be one of the main guys at Verre Volé in Paris. Had a lock in with him once in his own wine shop where he was debuting his own stuff and it was fucken great then too from what I remember, which is very little indeed. — 6 months ago
A celebration of life.
Our life, our sons life, our lives together.
12 months ago on this night we hadn’t yet met our son.
Tomorrow he turns 1.
We survived, he survived and now we’re here.
Lock down, a pandemic, no gatherings, low to no visits with family members. It’s tough.
Life is golden regardless of isolation and wines like this help keep everything in perspective.
Brilliant, linear, generous.
Stay safe everyone. — 6 months ago

Pretty delicious 13 year old California Cab (with a touch of Cab Franc). Deep red color. Tobacco on the nose, dark fruits on the palate. Not too much alcohol on the nose or palate. Enjoyed at home on lock down with grass fed NY steak, couscous, sautéed mushrooms, and some broccoli rabe. — 5 months ago
