A quick pick up pre trick or treating with the kids. And this was a surprisingly serious and good wine to complement baby Ruth, kit cat, and Hershey. For $20ish, I highly recommend.

Blackberry, cherry cola, mocha, vanilla, eucalyptus, raspberry, oak and currant. Great structure and big, chewy tannins.

a strong showing from Nick Goldschmidt, and the Alexander Valley at a nice sub $20 price! Aromas of dark cherry fruits, and balanced oak peek through Velvety, fruit forward and balanced mouthfeel with nice tannins and acidity. Decant for a min of 50 min!

Decant for minimum 1 hour and this young wine become very expressive and balanced.

This is a well made enjoyable wine hitting lots of positive notes. Very strong on the attack with lot's of bright Cherry fruit supported by medium/strong tannin and acid. The one big weakness is the lack of a mid-palate. There is a distinct lack of depth on the mid-palate with almost no flavor whatsoever. Think of a watery sensation mid-way through the taste. Attack is solid and the finish lingers but it is not supported with a mid-palate. I see why this is priced in the $20 price range. Still a buy for those who can live without the mid-palate.
