Returned to excellence this year. Bright fruity nose, deep burgundy color, juicy mouthwatering on the palate - slight effervescence - lots of layers of well balanced Zinfandel, Merlot, Syrah, Cab Franc, and Cab Sauvignon. Mild lingering finish with effervescence returning. Slightly sweet but the balance and complexity make it a pleasant experience. — 17 hours ago
Best Martha to date. Her wines get interesting at this level, beyond Post Flirtation. Here she channels Sicily and projects Cali through two grapes she adores - Nero D’Avola and Zin.Dark brew of juicy fruits and toasted spice. Plums, Driscoll’s blackberries, ripe raspberries. Cinnamon and cardamom. — 6 days ago
Great blend. Nice finish. A little buttery hint. — 8 days ago
More than 5 years since my last btl, and this is absolutely singing. I don't get the VM score (86) at all. Just a fantastically pure grenache, starting to whsiper about secondary aromas. On the nose: red raapberry, a touch of imcense, soft sandalwood and leather...wow. On the palate, excellent acidity, a touch of savory cured meat with the black raspberry...light on its feet, but great density, attenuated and soft tannin on the juicy and tangy finish. — 2 days ago
This Cabernet Sauvignon blend from California is drinking very nicely now, as a 4 year old. I had this vintage a year ago, and it is better now.
Showing red and black fruits with wood, earth, vanilla, licorice, peppercorn, pencil lead, tobacco, chocolates and coffee.
Full bodied with medium acidity. Spicy with nice complexity.
Nice length on the finish with round tannins.
Good right out of the bottle, fruit forward and good by itself or with food. Nice, enjoyable and a good quality wine.
I gave it a light chill and had by the pool.
A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Petit verdot. Kosher non mevushal
Only 13.7% ABV, which I loved.

New vintage for me, no new wood in this, according to their website. Yellow in color, excellent clarity. Apple notes in nose. Peach, apple and lemon flavors with hints of mineral and malolactic on the finish. Lingering malic-apple aftertaste, ever so slightly tart throughout. A superior Chardonnay, blessedly free of new oak, and all the more refreshing and delightful because of it. Well made, and almost convinced me that my avoidance of Chardonnays is all about their high price, but not, in this case, because of a lack of quality. Good stuff — 12 days ago
Deep, wooden cherry notes flourish both before and after the first taste. The flavor is sophisticated, yet simple. Nothing of note to end, but nothing negative to say about the beginning and middle. A very solid experience. — 21 days ago
