Very pleasant surprise from the first sip onward. This will be much had this year. — 3 months ago
Best white I’ve had in a while. Mineral, not too acidic, well-balanced with slightly floral notes — 4 months ago
More grip and acidity than remembered with 2018 (round fruity yum-yum), seems more stable for a larger distribution. Save for April 2021 onward, needs more bottle time, hold out for that first spring warm sun “Yeah” moment, and enjoy (lightly chilled) the peachy-side of life. — 5 months ago
Preposterous. Only word for this wine. Stunning nose. Pungent red and black fruits, lovely dusting of earth, floral, lipstick like intensity, so sappy and so pure. Wow what a nose. Just so so expansive. Really detailed, clear and pure. Really is a step up over the 18. Wow what a palate. Froooooooot! I am Froot. I am Froot. I am Froot. Anyway. Gorgeous, clearly defined red cherry fruit with a dash of blackberry and so so pure. Gorgeous earthy minerality. But the purity, decadence and also gamey (Gevrey?) quality of the fruit really are compelling. Wow, inner mouth florals and aromas. Beautiful, elegant and taught structure as well. So so pretty. Sappy, long and dissipating finish. This is an unreal wine. I can’t figure out if it’s a 9.3 or 9.4. The day will decide. Onward! I am Froot!
Palate is getting rounded and this has the elite fruit of Pierre’s higher end wines but doesn’t have the complexity or length. But man that froot and texture.
After 4 hours this has gotten silkier, sweeter and sexier. 9.3 to 9.4. Insane acids. Huge minerals. It dances in the palate. — 3 months ago
Thank you, George!!
Dont have a tech sheet, but will guess Zinfandel and Petit Sirah are percentages in the blend.
Wine still has baby fat. Needs 6+ months bottle time (July ‘21 earliest) fantastic late September onward. Bonkers right now. Love to see in 2024, at seven years. Good Mojo. — 6 months ago
Lots of cherry. Beautiful, easy drinking right out of the bottle. — 4 months ago

Delicious whole cluster nouveau — 5 months ago
41% Merlot, 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Syrah, 7% Petit Verdot, 1% Sauvignon Blanc.
Sheet of sediment in bottle, stood upright 24 hours, before decant. Filtered into decanter. Nicely aged. Strong bottle notes in decant. I recommend 3 hr. Decant. 4 hours onward, fruit notes waned.
In the tasting notes, Marijuana resin is noted. Yes, there is a taste of hash or cannabis resin in the dark notes of the wine. Pleasant, well integrated, savory, in the know.
Delicious, mature beauty. Dark bottle notes, with still bright cherry note. Cherry notes notable for estate, beautiful energy in wines.
Thank you for being present. — 6 months ago
