I usually like to wait 5yrs or so on burgs before opening them (just a personal preference), but after having a number of 17s lately, I’ve been very impressed. Likely in part due to the winemaker’s style but I’ve found them fruit forward and open for business. Though this had some density and weight I. The background, it only took 10mins I. The glass to open up and unfurl a beautiful mix of bright red fruit. — 12 days ago
8.5 now because it’ll be a 9 later.
This is one of those that you say “SHIT I OPENED IT TOO EARLY” on a single year difference. I have regrets.
Wait a year at least—it’s going to be fantastic. A bit too sour and funky for most in its youth, it’ll clearly smooth out. Like the rebellious child in high school you know is going to be brilliant once they’re the master of their own domain. — 22 days ago
C-19 neighborhood gift. Ty, H.N. Bold dark fruit when it hits the tongue followed by med/dry tannin. Delightful — an hour ago
Really like this 2017 wine, especially at the $15 price point. Higher acidity balanced by light milk chocolate and apple/berry fruit notes. Not too tannic. — 3 days ago
Buy more! Derrick really likes this one; it has a very grapey, "smells like you're at the winery" nose. Dry but pleasant mouthfeel, a little bit of minerality. — 16 days ago
