1 hour decant(some fine/cloudy sediment). An astonishing medium ruby red color. On the nose: dark brambly berries, wet soil, cigar box, smokey earth, mint. Taste: smooth, little creamy, structured, refined medium body wine with some black plum/cherry, cedar, licorice, crushed stone, green veggie, and a peppery milk chocolate medium plus dry finish. YUM! — 2 days ago
Could this be the best $14 I’ve ever spent in wine? If not it certainly is a contender. I loved these wines when they were first made and a couple of years ago I stumbled across a bunch of older wines being sold at BottleBarn and had to snap them up. They age beautifully. This one I think is perhaps just slightly past it’s peak, but is utterly delicious with aromas of leather, smoked meats, and dried flowers, with flavors of red apple skin, red miso, earth, and leather mixed with a touch of dried citrus peel and dried cherries. Still excellent acidity and billowy velvet-soft tannins. I think we have @Cathy Corison to thank for this one, along with Fritz Maytag. — 7 months ago
Light color, light bodied, but incredible flavor! A pale blush color, good legs and an incredibly balanced nose, with bright florals, stone fruits and undercurrent of something deep and compelling that I couldn’t put my finger on. It’s earthy and unique, like olive juice or mushroom soup? Something special. The flavor is much the same, tart at the start, with floral, nectar like notes, with white peach, plums, and a beautiful vegetal finish, like hay or fresh, dried cut grass. Really a fantastic and unique rose! — 5 months ago
I loved this interesting Cab. Not typically CA. Aging very well. Just the necessary tannin, no more. Just enough fruit, no more. Reminded me of the wine equivalent of Swedish design. — 10 months ago
Deliciously delicate soft nose and a wonderful feel on the tongue. Clearly made from East/West facing vines. — 2 months ago

This is a full bodied wine with a smooth supple mouthfeel medium + acidity and a medium + fine mouthcoating tannins and leaves you with a long dark fruit crushed stone finish. The weekend looks to be very nice and wish you all good health. Please stay safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — 6 months ago
