A touch musky upon opening with old potpourri, charred black cherries and cranberry. Some black pepper and herbs also showed up on the nose. Dark red with translucence around the rim. Dusty/earthy red and black fruits on the palate (slightly tart)...fairly light bodied, but gained depth as it opened. Violets, red currant, crunchy cranberry, cedar and herbal sage driven toward the finish. Solid structure.

As a side note, this is best slightly below cellar temp. At cellar and when warming in the glass it loses focus. Enjoyed it quite a bit when cooled back down.

Starters on a glorious Christmas Eve - hope everyone’s stocking is filled with gifts from wine gods, the families are together at least in spirits and we all have joy and peace today tomorrow and everyday

All smiles Dilly dilly and this wine is starting to open up but peak for this wine is about two to three years - I tried in Napa at winery and this has promise and so different than the Larry Hyde PN- it is less finesse and balance than LH but is a semi fruit bomb for PN

Merry Christmas

Delectable you need to add the correct wine - loved it but hearty PN - almost a cab but light color
