Such a baby. Huge wall of tannins. Loads of dark fruit and leather. Big potential here.

Thanks Naveen! Spectacular Howell Mountain favorite from Dunn. Rich, complex with serious depth. One sip and you turn into an philosopher!

The longer you can decant the better. Really opens up after couple hours. Dark black cherry, blueberry, great balance with earthiness. Powerful tannins mellow up over time. Hints of green pepper. Drank wonderfully tonight with friends at Rendezvous.

Right place at the right time and I was able to try this beauty. Classic Napa Cab.

Really came into its own after about 2.5 hours opened up. Great wine. Really earthy and tannic at the open but let it sit a couple hours and you’ll be rewarded with great structure of fruit, earthiness, and smooth tannins.

Nose: black fruit, cassis, spice, vanilla spice, currant, more old world styled. Intensity is huge but needs lots of time to open. Second day it hits you with concentrated blackberry jam, black cherry cobbler, mocha. Tannins are nice now full body, sweet spice, concentrated black fruit with clove and all spice integration. Fine but intense tannins. Long finish. Made for the medium to long haul. Give it another 3-5 years and see it open up a lot more.
