Great bottle. Fresh, fruit, stunning color, just a few ticks away from being a perfect bottle.

Probably the best domestic wine I’ve had. Still so youthful. No signs of fatigue. Beautiful and still evolving.

Beautiful, beautiful palate filling dark fruit, plum soft tannins on the tongue.

surprising amounts of red fruit. juicy but with tannin to shed. wish more transparent but a memorable experience nonetheless.

This is the most fruit I've ever tasted in such a young D.C. Wow. Stylistic change? Phil has been making these wines for 30 years so just curious as to the thought here. However, it's irresistible.

Sous bois, mushroom, balsamic. Not elegant by any means but a grainy, gnarled, powerful and still tannic treat.
