Tasted blind. Awesome deep old reddish scarlet color. Bright fruit in the nose. Notes of raspberry, dark cherry, worn shoe leather. With air some brown sugar and molasses pop up (in a good way). Very nice in the mouth. Velvet glove finish. Grew more complex and was a roller coaster of fun over a couple of hours. Big surprise here. No history with this producer but loved it. Guessed 70s Bordeaux.

Excellent bottle, tight upon opening, needed 2hrs to open. But when it did was fantastic, austere and bold, still has fruit and depth.

To bad most Napa producers don't make wines like this anymore.

Boy does this have wings. Big and bold. Kept getting more body with air over dinner. Rustic, mountain cab with plenty of time left. #greatbottles My WOTN
