Staining red ink. Doesn't leap out of the glass, but what is apparent on the nose gives confidence for what's to come. Explosive on the palate, with blackberry, blackberry, blackberry, blackcurrant, licorice, cedar, pencil shavings, and mocha. Silky and polished, this glides on and on. This would easily be $100+ in Napa... Thank God for Sonoma.

This is quite nice. It hits all the notes but isn’t overly memorable.

Wonderful compliment to my nicely seasoned steak! Rich tannins, cherry undertones and a perfectly subtle spicy finish. Sunday dinner perfection. Thanks Grant Nieland. 😘

Dark fruits, green asparagus, pepper, black tea. Medium body, balanced alcohol and acidity, long spicy finish. Everything done right, but it somehow underwhelmed.

Opened a bit early, but after a little breathing, perfection.

2013 Cabernet Sauvignon & Malbec heavy-Deep, dark berries...black currants, black cherries- flesh of empress plum, savory herbs & wet tobacco leaf...touches of white pepper in front of palate... too many descriptors to add...
Ectremely deep with tons of structure... an incredible taste now; with time - unbelievable! Definitely Decant- or allow the aromas to invite you for its' immediate sip...
