Not in love with like other vintages. I will let my 750 age a couple years and the magnum even longer if possible. — a month ago
Better on day two - living up to its Mt Veeder heritage. Bold, dark fruit abound, hint of vanilla and caramel, layers of flavor throughout. Sterling did a nice job with the bounty from Yates Vineyard. This can continue to evolve in the cellar for quite some time. — a month ago
To me, this wine is perfection. Beautiful dark fruits, incredible smoothness, in-check acidity, and not the slightest bit of heat. — 2 days ago
Right.on.the.nose. — 2 days ago
Nose has ripe blackberry, blackberry jam, fruit Roll-up, dried meats, iodine (?), wet leaves, toasted pistachio, fresh violet, wet leather and dark chocolate chunks.
Palate has raspberry jam, dried blackberry, black currant jam, wet leather, dehydrated black cherry, moist cigar and mild tannins persist.
A great showing on this bottle tonight, proof positive on the pedigree of the vineyard. This should age gracefully for the next 8-10Y without concern.
Paired to mesquite smoked pork chops from a 1/2 pig purchase from our dear farmer friend Courtney at Highland Farm (Old Chatham, NY). Please support your local resources. — a month ago
