Complex as the blend might suggest. Bright and dark fruits, some spice, hints of anise and cedar, a smooth but rich mouth feel. Pleasant drinking and a lot more interesting than many more pretentious varietal wines from the region. 2015 vintage — 4 years ago

From a very limited series of individual small lot Pinot clones, this one Dijon 115 grown on the central coast. Hazy. Supple texture that’s got a very focused, eager-to-please cherry fruit profile. A ripe basket combo of sour, black and sweet maraschino. Super enjoyable. — 2 years ago
63/37 Verdot/Sirah made by the Scheid family. This one is surprisingly drinkable right out of the bottle! But I'd still decant for 30 minutes+. It's an explosion of various berries, but also features tar, black licorice, and cocoa. Additionally, it comes in at a mere 14%. A refreshingly drinkable Petite/Petite! — 5 years ago

My impression is markedly different than when I last tried a bottle of this. Now I smell pleasant cedar. The taste is of black fruit, mocha, and clove with a nice spicy finish. Is it me or is there that much difference between bottles? Probably me. — 7 years ago
