Wow. Tremendous wine. Half merlot and half cab franc. Great balance of acidity, alcohol, tannin, fruit....just wow.

A bit of a smoky, roasted chile flavor. Yum! Wow this one just keeps getting better.

Day 3 in Napa in the books! Running a day behind on notes...Napa time runs slow AND fast!

First wine of the day. 100pts. Big and structured but Russell’s plush style at 7yrs old has mellowed and become very integrated. Strawberry and mixed berry pie with more herbal notes. Dark chocolate and cedar.

This is starting to settle down a little, but still young. Sweet dark fruits on the nose with apricots, leather, and cedar notes. Palate revisits these themes, though the alcohol feels higher for the flavors in the glass. While not overly complex, there is nice concentration and silkiness.
