This was showing magnificently! Big, bold, fruit, stunning texture and the front, mid and finish (oh my God, the finish!) were spectacular! Just an incredible wine. Note: no, the fact that our winemaker makes this wine had no baring on my notes or rating.

Big, Fruity, floral, silky smooth with years to go. Almost a crime to drink this so early but I couldn't help it. One of my all time favorites.

Still a super wine but this one a little young to fully shine. Acidity and tannins front and center now but the future is bright. Needs another 2-3 years to mature.

3-hour decant. Dark fruit, blackberry, raspberry, black cherry, tobacco and a touch of cedar. Long finish.

Been 18 months since my last bottle, and time has softened the tannins slightly. But I believe this bottle is in for the long haul. It could easily use another 5 years. Dark fruit, Asian spice, cedar, graphite. I wouldn’t waste this on food.

Rich, silky and powerful. The nose offers big notes of dark blue fruits. The palate is all about cassis, blueberry and vanilla with hints of spice. It coats the mouth. There’s acidity but right now it’s overpowered by the tannins. This is a baby but still delicious.
