An ample dose of (very ripe + very evocative) Anderson Valley fruit & flora: cherry, raspberry, pennyroyal tea, dank forest floor, still vibrant and youthful. This wine is just a bit too hot and heavy (nearly 15% alc) for my tastes. Really exquisite fruit here, but while I like this power and boisterousness in her Petite Sirah, I prefer the volume just a tad lower on my Pinots. Pardon any typos; I am a lightweight and no longer accustomed to these abvs on a Tuesday night!

Has likely peaked a bit since having enjoyed this three years ago, we forgot about it in the cellar to be honest and after corresponding with the wine maker, he recommended we open it soon so we pulled it out to enjoy with some braised chicken thighs tonight. Still has plenty of zingy acidity but the nose and flavour profile have softened a wee bit. Citrus and stone fruit notes characterize a much better glass than most conventional whites. I’m sad that was my last bottle but grateful to have enjoyed it 2x — 20 days ago
Super earthy, musky, soil, leather. Reminds me of my grandfather. He owned 100+ suits. And even more cologne. Miss him.
The grippy tannins and balance with acidity shines here. Great fruit and slight baking spices as well.
Great overall balance here. Straight kool-aid. Juice.
Love the story and resilience of the producer as well. — 2 days ago
Color of ruby and grapefruit, with a mix in of purple. Nose is nice, with oak, plum, spices, a bit tobacco leaves, aldehyde, mint, sweet corn syrup, and cherry jam. Nose keeps coming. Taste follows the nose with addition of grassy more obvious tobacco leaves, just a bit sweetness, minty again, oaky, pine needles taste from gin, a bit peppery, very smooth and low tannins. Aftertaste of is long and savory. Good one. — 15 days ago
Totally delicious. Honey, lilacs, apricot, green apple sweet and a balanced acidity, medium body — 13 days ago
This dark wine - opaque, in fact - has a powerful nose. It packs a perfumed aroma package consisting of dark fruit - like blackberries - and only a limited supply of the earthiness which I often find in a Paso Robles Cab. There is a savory streak, to be sure, and it throws leather, tar and a pine forest into the nose. The chalky aspect of the Paso dirt comes through on the palate, which is heavily influenced by the earth and the two years spent in barrels. — 18 days ago
Didn't get a chance to drink it. Was gone before I could get to it. The little that I drank was good. Medium bodied with fruit and oak. Need to try it again. Bought from Scott wines — 15 days ago
