Just a few pics of the wines from last night’s monthly 4th Friday. Too many bottles to try!
Another example of a delicious 2011 vintage. I think this vintage is drinking really well right now in regards to integration. Dark in the glass, but lighter in aromatics and palate. Baked mixed berry pie, rhubarb tart, cedar and sweet vanilla tobacco on the nose and palate. Good structure and still showing some tannin. The finish had potpourri, cassis and even some graphite. Drinking really well but think this could hold in this window for another few years. — 18 days ago
Texture, finish. Glad I have more. Lots more years left. — 5 days ago

Even at 2 hrs after cork pop and a lazy man's bottle decant, quite a bit of this wine still taste like a barrel sample. The nose is youthful blackberry, blueberry, pencil shavings. Entry is a ton of youthful and herbal blackberry cassis. Graphite. The middle has a hint of dark baking chocolate and spice. Toasted youthful berries. Finishes with a lot of toasty oak tannin. Probably one of those integrated wines I have had from Pott. Just delicious. — 23 days ago
Just arrived on the FedEx truck yesterday, and I couldn’t resist opening a bottle right away. Delicious and full of black and blue fruit. Very youthful and will benefit from a bit of rest before opening more. Don’t let the 2017 vintage scare you, Aaron Pott did a beautiful job with this wine. Tremendous value for the money as well. — 2 months ago
