I didn't know much about this wine, but it was dense yet filled with rich, dark fruit and just enough grip to keep it lifted. I really liked it.

Funky nose, stewed plum attack. Truffle, mushroom finish.

Cheers to our friends, the Greene's, for bringing this lovely wine. We've heard of their affinity for this winery before and were glad to finally get to experience it ourselves. Nice expression of Alexander Valley. Great lengthy legs and stain your teeth purple color. Tannins were gripping until an hour+ later and this became velvety blueberries on the palate.

This blend is normally pretty good but this 2016 drank exceptional well. Firm tannins but a smooth enough mouthfeel to make it very approachable. Dry but with great fruit flavor.

The flavors of black currant, black pepper and vanilla are what I smell first. The wine is smooth and velvety with slightly bitter ending.
