Ok, this one has been tucked away long enough to try another bottle. It’s the wife’s 21st annual 29th birthday, so let’s be bold! We went to this vineyard in 2014 and picked up several of these bottles, even though our palette was already toast for the day. You could still taste something good to come. Some smokiness and earthiness at first. Then the black cherry and mocha dryness came next. Nice finish. I still think there is a good 10 years to go on this vintage, so I will be back in 5 years for the next opening.

Booooooozy but we just did a lineup of 7% Rieslings so I guess that makes sense.

Never had a wine smell so BLACK. Blackberries blueberries sweet spices with just insane concentration.

2012 Pritchard hill cab boom. Why does this taste so good and balanced?

Coco and to me, a little licorice, with some tannin structure. This one needs time to release its full potential.
