One of the original creations out of the category 12 lab. A surprisingly different IPA, pours like a stout and has a mild hoppiness. Toasted malt comes through for a smooth beer. — 9 months ago
Excellent value. Developed well for the second glass.

Nose has old tar, countless stems of red roses, dried cherry, library stacks and dried raspberry.
Palate has jammy and bright cherry preserves, fresh tart cherry, old leather, moist earthy notes (positive trait) and some neutral wood.
Mellow tannins after an extended decant, this bottle is really singing. I am lucky to have tasted older vintages to give an understanding of where this wine is going. Now, whether or not I have the patience to hold the remaining bottles another 20-years is a major question, very nice today.
Decanted ~3hrs, in a cool place. Not my kitchen today, which was quite warm as I preserved our first real harvest of 2019 tomatoes, converting them into pizza sauce. I beat our first processed batch from 2018 by an entire week...don't believe anyone telling you we're not living through climate change, or more appropriately 'climate disruption' to quote Ralph Nader. This is why the best Nebbiolo is now coming from northern Italy, and the best Pinot will transition to Germany. OK, enough politics, this is a forum for wine, mostly. Cat photo-bombs appreciated in your bottle pics (sorry none from me today). — a year ago
From Andrew Latta, the guy behind the guy at K Vintners for the last decade. 60% Cab/40% Malbec. Blows the doors off of the Charles & Charles Post 35. This is fresh and vivid, with flowers, tobacco and dark fruit, but light on it's feet. Very easy drinker. — 4 years ago

Smokey-ness came through and was actually good tasting. Did not have “drying effect” on my mouth. I’d love to try it again — 2 years ago
