Slow ox’d this for 9 hours (I.e., I opened it at 6:30am and pried myself away) then decanted for 30m. Massive and inky, in a way that could stain Teflon. Black currant, fruit cake, grass, jalapeño. Fleshy and round with velvety tannins. Very primary, as expected. There is a ton of complexity all wound up on the back end. Wish I could try again in a decade.

Wow. A powerhouse with finesse. A nose of freshly picked blackberries and chocolate pie. Glides along the palate effortlessly revealing blackberry, chocolate ganache, and pepper flavors. Lush and full-bodied. Super silky tannins with a long, loamy finish. Really impressive effort. I love this winery and this is a perfect example why.

Baking spices, candied black fruit on the nose. Jam packed with fruit and not as tight as I would have thought. Gobs of blueberry and blackberry, brown sugar and a touch of herbs, cardamom and vanilla. Delicious but my knock would be that it is a little one dimensional and I would like a little more acidity.
