So much potential! After an hour in the glass just begins to open up. Precise, layers of depth and elegant. Nice!

Probably the best wine I have ever had. Christmas Day with everyone in Austin, alongside a phenomenal Bordeaux and others, but this was my favorite.

Super drinking blend but definitely give it time to open up. Smooth with plenty of flavors that dance around in your mouth and linger nicely.

Doesn't get much better. Super long finish. Round and full bodied. Stands alone. No need for food.
