Exquisite. Refined. The 2014 Estate Selection Is not as bold but balanced. Dark red fruit delicately balanced with slight smoke. Paired with grilled steak and Brussels sprouts. — 8 days ago
@Shay A inspired me to dig this out of the cellar. Turns out I had a bunch of the 2013, not the 2012. Read his review in concert with this. Bright and clear reddish purple in the glass. Similar to the 2012, this presented notes of bing cherry, plum and black tea but not any of the tobacco noted on the 2012. Good color with no oxidation whatsoever. Balanced acid and fruit on the palate. Little if any tannin. Finish was more cherry with a little herbal thing going on that I could not put my finger on . Overall very pleasant and can go for a few more years. — a month ago
Outstanding value. This is acidic and tropical. Huge amount of flavor with some stone fruit, tart apple, not much grass at all, but well balanced. Margerum’s wines were some of my first in exploring SB terroir and this one reminds me of the excellence he had at wine cask. — 18 days ago
Nose has jammy ripe raspberry & blackberry, spicy oak/cedar and warm plum.
Palate has ripe blackberry, plum, black cherry and dry soil.
Opened 3 days earlier, it was a tannic and jammy beast, not my style. Honestly the youngest bottle we've opened, so I wasn't terribly surprised by the showing. This wine has really settled with very extended air, quite pleased tonight.
2018 blend is 70% Syrah, 15% Grenache & 15% Sangiovese. We've been enjoying this wine randomly since about the 2009 vintage, embracing the culture behind the label. Look it up if you're not familiar. — 18 days ago
