Juicy and very Napa like. Tons of color, richness and new oak. There was a philosophy shift here around 2007 and since then it the wine seems very 'made'. It still very good stuff with the right food. Massive wine for sure but very soft and round

Rich young and tannic with plush red fruit a solid peppery core with some heat (16%) finishing racy but will settle down over the next decade or so

Creamy nose. Flavors include mocha or hints of chocolate, vanilla, fruits that really overshadowed by the heavier flavors. Creamy texture. Medium bodied, but has a great tannin structure. Excellent flavors. Very enjoyable and recommended.

Black cherries, candied apple, blueberries and clove. So very smooth (@ 16% abv wine.!)
Perfect balance in structure, with quite supple and subtle tannins. This libation will assuredly leave not even the most discerning of oenologically inclined palates or/and captains of industry crestfallen.

This showed far better than I was expecting. My new associate brought it and it paired well with my surf and turf 🐮🦂 tannic but not overly so. Dark blue/black fruits. Tar, cherry, oak shavings. It paled in comparison to the magnificent Nine Suns but it impressed vs expectations.

We had the 2013 Vintage On 7/30-31/19. Big bold full bodied wine. Tastes of blackberry, black cherry, oak and vanilla. Full bodied wine that was better on the second night. Just heavier than a Napa Cab.

Wow. Decided it was a beautiful evening, with marinated Colony sauce fillets headed for the grill, that I needed a wine to match. Wasn't disappointed at all! Well integrated with full flavors of cherries, darker fruits, a hint of charcoal, and simply a wonderful, lucious wine. With me bride, and Deano crooning Italian music, el fresco.....doesn't get any better for me.

Again over delivers for the price. Still primary fruit, spicy oak, moderate tannins and able to age.
