En Mag - this is my second time around and celebrated a deal closing - as in 2017 this wine delivered - amazingly it is getting better - this is from a single vineyard at 2000 feet on Howell - this is full bodied mid palette sweet tannins with a rich nose long legs black currant berries and and I think it is getting better - ten plus years left - dark purplish color - I LOVE It and made a nice splash last night — 8 days ago
Nose has over-ripe/sweet pineapple, lanolin, fresh pineapple, melted candle wax, clean cotton tee shirt and faint white pepper.
Palate has dried pineapple, dried lime peel, tangerine peel, spicy oak, waxy yellow apple peel, hint of (citrus) sweetness on the long/complex finish. Wow. Decanted 4H.
Bought at the winery in 2008, was looking to hold the bottle at least this long, maybe another 5Y would still be acceptable in proper storage. A perfect, clean cork pull, no seepage or saturation at all. — 12 days ago
Black cherry liquor, candied plum, cool blackberry, lavender pastille, olive caramel, bacon fat, cool herbs, woodsmoke, fine layers of hung meat and forest notes. Fruit is bouyant, juicy and offers immense pleasure while its wild side adds dimension. To me there is a perfect amount of richly layered fruit and palate weight with proper acid balance to cut it all back. Tannins are ripe, yet supportive. — 6 days ago
