I’m much higher than Josh Raynolds on this. Soaring nose. Stunning blend of game, flowers, and more flowers, like violet and pastille as well. Amazing purity. The nose is really what it is all about. Just stunning. True ZOMG nose. Granite as well. Palate is structured and very juicy with stunning freshness and purity. Wow. An amazing mouthfeel and such length and texture. Really coats the palate. Stunning richness and decadence. Amazing balance. This is absolutely outrageous. — 2 days ago

Charles Smith takes on Cayuse fruit. 80 Cab 20 Syrah. Pretty clean, with just a hint of rocks funk. Holding up fine, but not really evolving. — 10 days ago

Kuyen Valle Del Maipo Syrah Blend 2015

Big, lush, juicy. Ripe blueberry, dark cherry—bursting with fruit. A big dash of sweet spice and soft tannin. Feels indulgent like Christmas — 10 days ago

Nose of homemade cranberry sauce, full of berries, cloves and mandarin orange. This is light, bright acidic cranberry goodness. Yes. — 10 days ago

I really enjoy big fruity, inky wines. Bolder the better! And Daou continually makes a product I enjoy. I apologize for no bottle picture—airport travel. The picture description perfectly encapsulates this beauty — 3 days ago

Chester-Kidder Columbia Valley Red Blend 2014

This was ready to go the moment the cork was pulled. The juicy blue and black fruits just about leap from the glass and the palate, wow, just fabulous. Sweet, juicy tannins gush across it leading to a long, intoxicating finish. Love everything I’ve had from this producer. — 10 days ago
