Tried this about year ago! Deep Ruby with aromas of ripe dark fruits, pepper spice and cedar notes. A Far Niente offering aged for 16 months in 60% new French oak. On the palate flavors of black cherry, ripe plum and blackberry with notes of cacao and espresso. Fine structured tannins with good acidity on long finish ending with integrated fruit, spice and toasty oak character. Aged well!

Good vintage. Well made wine. Pure, laser-focused. Displays weight, texture, sweetness, and a sense of place, driven by its minerality.

Oak nose. Full body, dry, mild tannins. Smoky palate with lots of plum and blackberries.

Great value from the makers of Far Niente and N&N. Very dark, black cherry, strawberry, oak. Not super ripe fruit which is nice. Minimal earth and spice. Opens up nicely.

Reminiscent of Caymus but a bit less spice. 2018 Christmas at Parmelee’s.
