Big fruit. Big tannins. Big balance. — 9 months ago
Really good bright fruit. Raspberry. Drank with christmas eve dinner at summit club. Great with the turkey and roast beef. — 2 years ago
Nose has light wood smoke, dried pineapple, crushed sandstone and light squeeze of tangerine.
Palate has dried pineapple, dried lemon zest and a light touch on the new oak treatment.
With a slight chill to the wine, it's mildly reminiscent of a Meursault, quite an intriguing bottle. — 2 years ago
Medium purple with an explosive nose of black currant, black berries, raisins, roasted meats, green peppercorn, and tar/motor oil. Dry, but brings fruit across the palate. This medium bodied wine has well-integrated tannins and strikes me as being more similar to an old world style syrah from Rhone though produced in Sonoma county. Finish lingers nicely. — 7 months ago
