This wine is inky dark. The nose is full of plums, blackberries and cherries, with a touch of bacon grease and earth. More than a touch, actually. The palate hits a sweet note amid the dark fruit and oak spice, although the latter stays in the background. The tannic structure is young and firm, but not overpowering. Tasted blind, I probably would have guessed Syrah instead of Cab.

Barrel tasting of 2018 vintage; deep ruby with magenta hues; medium plus intensity aromas of ripe black fruit, blackberry, black plum, plum jam, dried blackberry, intense vanilla; dry, medium acid, medium plus tannins, high alcohol, full body, pronounced intensity flavors consistent with aromas; long finish, a very intensely flavored and concentrated wine, balanced structure; this winery loves to make BIG wines — 13 days ago
A mix of two of my favorite wines. I loved this at first taste! — a month ago
Interesting with a medium copper-y orange color. Nose combines lychee/tropical note and the slightly musky scent of steeped oolong tea. Not as tannic/astringent as I expected (hoped?) with Thanksgiving feast. Felt a bit soft, but on day two plenty of acid present...
Unique and original American wine. Worth a taste. — 11 days ago
