Decanted the heck out of this and it has many years to go but with enough air it is drinking brilliantly! Vibrant, balanced, and beautiful.

Arietta Wines lunch with owner Fritz. We were able to taste through some current releases as well as some reserve wines Fritz brought with him personally. A treat to enjoy these Andy Erickson wines!

Lots of potential here but crazy youthful. H Block is CabFranc and merlot co-fermented. At this age, it was really fuzzy and nervy. Bouquet of violets and mulberry but also pepper spice and chalky tannins. This will get more floral but some dark cocoa notes started to show toward the end.

Hi there, shall we light incense and put flowers in our hair and think deep thoughts while eating various herbal pastes upon roasting meat? I don’t actually quite remember what roasting meat tastes like but I’ve smelled it and this steak has a good deal of pepper and aforementioned herbal paste. Licorice for dessert. This wine is sensual and a little mysterious much like my soul aspires to be. Excuse me. I’m going to go light a candle.
