Bold, powerful red Bordeaux style blend. Merlot 53%, Cab Sav 23%, Cab Franc 22%, Petit Verdot 4%. Dark cherries, blackberries, dark chocolate. There are strong notes of black pepper, peppercorn and tobacco mixed with old fine leather. Aged for 14 months in small French barrels and 15 months in bottle. 79 barrels produced. This definitely needs 2hrs to decant, and will continue to blossom as the night progresses. Had some early sips after an hour, and an hour and a half of decanting and the tannins still needed time to settle. — 20 days ago
Bold, not smooth enough to sip, but pairs well with grilled steak. — 15 days ago
Good. Compliments of Jared’s mom — 14 days ago
Tons of well-balanced flavour. Plum, blackberries, lavender, and mocha. Fantastic by itself but would probably pair very well with a stake or a roast. — a day ago
This rich but vibrant bone-dry blend of Roussanne and Viognier offers uncanny complexity and intensity for its gentle price. Aromas and flavors of citrus and stone fruits are accented by kiwi, mint and lime blossom, with firm acidity extending the fruit through a subtly long, lively finish. $16.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2020) — 19 days ago

Red hue color. Let it open up in the glass for 10 minutes. Juicy & ripe, this bursts open with a flavorful rich fruity cherry compote & red licorice spice. It's light bodied & ready for near-term drinking, and yet has the acid backing to age a couple more years. — 18 days ago
