Exceptional! This was a half bottle vintage 2011 and I think it was the perfect age. Half bottles age quicker, so I would give a normal sized bottle about 10 years from vintage. Busting with wonderful fruit and mellow oak. Happy new year!

Brett and barnyard aromas punch you in the nose upon first whiff, grape juice underbelly becomes apparent with a second whiff. Increased barrel aging and the inclusion of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon imparts a touch more complexity, acidity, and astringency than its baby brother Cabernet Franc/Merlot blend "Justification".

Ripe black Fruit, full body and some green bell pepper jam, a bit of VA in the back, old school Cali Cab with fresh acidity, still young, 2011.

Very special 2011 half bottle opened mid 2019. You can tell it continued to age in the bottle with the fruit becoming more mellow, the wine taking on a more orange-red hue and a bit leathery to the nose and taste. I ended up going back and emptying the shelf at the local grocery store. Half bottles are so much easier to open and finish.

This wine’s reputation is basically justified. But I am still peeved that only two of the four triangles in the logo are in fact isosceles.
