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!

Super rich and smooth. Still great fruit for a wine this old. Dark purple color and lingers on the palate.

Nose of caramel, Forrest, pepper, jam, and raspberries. Mouth is gorgeous. Cocoa, pepper, vanilla, berry jam, but a great acidity and tannin in amazing balance. Drinking fantastic after about an hour of air.
