Pretty bad ass. Candied fruit, cinnamon, and savory spices on the nose. Palate is incredibly balanced with dark cherries, vanilla, tobacco, minerals and blood. Decanted for 4 hours and has continued to evolve since then. First, but won't be my last. The first label has to be sick. Restores my faith in 2011.

Herbaceous nose, very nice wine just can't tell how it would age. Bordeaux'esque nose but rich fruit. Has potential, just not sure.

Best 2011 I have tasted to date. Espresso, mocha and tobacco. 3 of my favorite things. Half cab franc and a finish I just can't describe. This is special.

An excellent wine in a less than perfect year. The wine has a pleasing sophistication and even luxuriousness.
