After all day being a tannic monster...
Roast coffee on the nose, dry earth, extraordinary concentration.

Classic Cali cab. But just too hot. Liked first glass. I’d like a Côtes du Rhône for 2nd glass please.

Very beautifully composed. Last I had it, the wine was open for 8 hours or so before serving. Had it right out of the bottle this time and it was a noticeable richer showing. New oak, vanilla tinged with herbs and mint, tannic backbone. Towards the end of it's short decant it became the wine I remember, with subdued fruit and new oak for a more round, beneath the ground approach.

Great structure. Violet, bright juicy cherry. Vinilla note on the finish.

Amazing wine. Starting to show secondary flavors of truffles and stewed fruit, yet still retains bright, tart youthful red fruits too. Getting so many layers of flavors - maple syrup, cherry jolly ranchers, red currants, on and on.

So at first I was like, what is this? It was thin and weird, nothing like Groth. But ya gotta wait! Give this young pup 2-3 hours before you even taste it. The Oakville comes out in force, but it's gotta break free! It's so deep, and so structured, it's amazing.. But it's buried under a mountain of phenols and tannins right now. In fact, save this until 2020. It'll be ahhmazing!
