Found another straggler and it was delicious...vivid, dark black cherry color.. smoke, goose fat, rich forest floor mushrooms. The 14.99 ABV largely resolved with little heat left. Every time I’m tempted to cut back I open one at 10-12 years... not gonna do it. Glorious new world Syrah! — 19 days ago
More like a fine Napa cab. Plum, blackberry, licorice, fresh herbs, light pepper spices, cigar box, and vanilla. On the palate it’s warm, gentle, and full of layered flavors, strung together by round but streaking acidity. Fine grained tannins.
Quite elegant, a word I don’t usually associate with Zin. Should continue to evolve over the next 5 years or so. — 5 days ago
Cold climate Pinot similar to Finger Lakes. Quite fruity initially, settles into a more even experience with lots of air. October 2020. — 5 days ago
