Awesome dark berries with nice minerality. Howell mountain fruit at its best. Finish lasts forever. Decant and enjoy. No need to stash this away. She shows beautifully with air

Lots of dark red currant and plum with a good bit of structure. Always enjoy this bottling!

Dancing with bears tonight. It took me more than an hour to teach this bear the Texas Two Step, but after that we were cutting a rug. The initial bright red fruit notes eventually slide into a darker, richer profile of blackberry, charcoal, currant, cassis, and a mix of dark and milk chocolate. What really takes this from good to great is the constant background of baking bread infused with rosemary. For the hedonist, this is a pure pleasurefest, with more than enough complexity and nuance to satisfy the intellectual, but like a soaring ballad, the real appeal here is to the romantic.
