medium reddish purple; black cherry, plum, licorice, baking spices; sappy, dark berry compote; full bodied, fine tannins, 14.5% ABV; aged in 55% new French oak , small amount in concrete egg, inaugural vintage from the vineyard; project of Michael Browne of Kosta Browne, style typical of Russian River Valley and Kosta Browne, bigger and darker than the Treehouse bottling

Classy and balanced with a solid, sexy red fruit core. Will continue to evolve in the bottle I’m sure but it’s so good right now.

I’ve had this bottle twice before and this is the strongest showing. It seems at or near peak. Quite nice.
