Needs some air to blossom. But then it’s classic Rocks: smoky basaltic minerality (a/k/a “fire pit”), grilled asparagus, iodine, and cassis ooze. So concentrated and mouthfilling. Plushly-textured, filling every nook and cranny. Low acids, but the savoriness and minerality of the wines from this AVA actually negate that as an issue (it would be a different story if the wines from the Rocks more fruity rather than savory). Rhône varieties grown in this district are some of the most interesting wines in the world IMHO. — 2 days ago
David's Folly because the winemaker and his friends call each other David. His name is Tim. His friends have other names. Odd.
Cab and CF. Lovely rounded and high toned. Challenging being at a custom crush. Exciting future especially when they get their own space. #wbc18 — 10 days ago
Bought at winery, 300 cases made, my last bottle. I’ve loved this wine, I’ve struggled with this wine. Love the Syrah component, struggled with the 3% Viognier addition. Is this wine too floral? Final verdict: no. How good is this wine? Purple-red in color, medium extraction, very good clarity. Leather and cherry fruit leather notes in nose, buttery floral aftertaste; later white pepper flavor emerges. Medium seed bitterness, moderate skin astringency. Can still age this one, frankly, as the tannins and acids are there. A tasty but challenging flavor profile, and a well-made wine, but not for everyone — 3 days ago
