whiplash tangerine streak at first.....the tropical/lychee/rosewater thing of course....it leans a little oily, which may be the years on its side speaking, and there’s the faintest bit of something that falls between rubber and mint. a fleeting rose perfume comes back, then some grapefruit rind. then this weird thing that’s like baby aspirin rubbed into wet wood. plucky. — 12 days ago

Sorrel, black Cherry, musty leather, currants, blackberry, opaque ruby, wet, almost flat but on the rim acid to tannin wise and it works, the fruit falls fast but starts with a high acid and at the finish there is a grassy, sweet, focused lump of wet body — 2 days ago

This had nice texture, thickness, was round & lush. Blackberries, black plum, black raspberries, plum, touch of very dark cherries/raspberries & shades of blue fruit round out the fruits. Expresso roast, sweet tarriness, black licorice, mid intensity back spices, tobacco, soft leather, mild volcanics & limestone, barrel shavings, dry crushed rocks, stones, rich dark earth with an array of fresh & slightly withering; dark, red, purple & blue florals. Nice round acidity. The finish is rich, lush, elegant, round, respectfully balanced and good but, uneventful finish/experience. Falls into the serviceable Napa Cabernets category. — 24 days ago
