Kimchi pencils dipped in Nutella. Drinking perfectly. Love it.

Still too young, but this is so good right now. Every Roogie I've ever had has been infanticide, but they are tasty

Always a save bet, unfortunately so hard to get. In a great spot at the moment. Cherry, herbs and just a hint of green pepper on the cool & elegant nose. Nicely integrated tannins & acidity. Medium+ finish.

A little more pyrazine driven than the two vintages from last week. Pretty, but a little muddled on the palate. #Napaearthquakelabels

Pretty tight upon opening, but it opened up beautifully. Dark fruit, vibrant acidity and minerality.

Why did I pass on '07s? Big mistake on my part. This is really good, and it just goes to show: buy great producers in every vintage.
