Holy tannins Batman! Grip, strength and depth. Bacon that is cut through with razor sharp tannins. This wine definitely has not peaked at all. Wish I had a couple more bottles.

Think it's a new release, Incredible texture, teeth staining, inky purple, planted in 2000 on a west facing hill over the San Pablo Bay, Southern Petaluma Gap, constant afternoon wind. Intense, amazing structure, violets, raspberries, pepper, meat, funk. 50% WC, Viognier co-fermented, Feels like it's going to age for a long time, has everything, alcohol, acid and tannin, probably coming back to the next bottle in 2024. Ridiculous wine.

Creamy boysenberry. Beautiful brightness with the co-fermentation of 3% viognier

2014 Vintage. 14.2% Alcohol. Good fruit and acidity but still some tannins to resolve to fully shine. Whole cluster stems no doubt. Nice to see others have access to this fruit.

Needs years. But after a decant the nose was a savory beast. Tannins still locked down after hours open.

Fiercely tannic and beautifully extracted. Smoked meat tones and herbs balance the fruit. Needs YEARS or a LONG decant

Flowers and exotic spices on the nose, cured meat, crushed rock, very tannic. Give this a long decant or (preferably) several years.
