Monday night celebration wine. Rich chocolate covered cherries stored in a cedar cigar box. Wish I had a cigar to go with!

Last opened one of these 2012 vintages nearly three years ago. Spectacular! Hard to find a better American Bordeaux-style blend, especially at this price. Lush, smooth, outstanding!

As expected from this vineyard, a touch pricey for the experience.

One of my favorite wines of all of Sonoma County, poured to celebrate the upcoming nuptials of Ryan and Steph, and the visit of Fi!

We decanted this bottle after opening it shortly before serving.

Rich, dense, dark fruits, tar, tobacco, full bodied red wine.

80 degrees in Denver yesterday and snow today.

Since drinking 1997 vintage , I had soft spot for wine . This vintage definitely not the '97 but is very nice. Aroma jumps out of the glass while pouring. Good mouth feel,smooth tannins. Typical Sonoma tastes only a very very small hint of green herbs . Not great with Manchego cheese.

Lovely current, blackberry and cassis on the nose. Flavors of dark chocolate, boysenberry and black tea. Much softer than I anticipated but could easily lay down for 10 years.

Debonair, even a bit sexy. Masculine. Needs 10 years to work itself out but the cocoa, graphite, vanilla and oaky tannins will resolve to an even higher score.
