2h decant. Very old world. Nose of tobacco, leather, habanero, cinnamon, ripe bramble. Not clearly Cali until the palette, when more (though modest) fruit appears. Decades of life remain.

Mint and dried herbs. Takes time to open. Beautiful wine.

Holy smokes. While this is really lean, there is pronounced blackberry juice here, even Cumberland sauce and venison. It's both rich and lean at the same time. The finish is extraordinarily long.

Wow. What an explosive wine. Young but very approachable, with lots of room to grow. On the nose, dark fruits, violets, a slight herbal tinge. In the mouth a huge rush of dark fruits, rose petals, violets, tobacco, fine tannins and bright acidity. Long, long finish. IMO- an equal to some Ridge Montebellos...
