Nice acidity, tannins still tight, red fruit a lot of red/sour cherry/black raspberry. medium finish. Hope it softens upon aging

A little astringent at first almost like UN ripened fruit but opens up nicely

Bright in color and taste, light fruits, wild pink flowers, cinnamon maybe! wonderful finish.

Nice for 2011 year. This merlot dominated right bank blend is very approachable now. It has a nice backbone of sweet berry and oak with a hint of cinnamon sugar on the finish.

Celebrating 6 years of wonderful marriage with my beautiful bride, @Krystal Vento

Corked, so no rating 😏 This was actually the first red we opened and after one brief smell in the glass I knew it was toast. So sad because I was really looking forward to trying this producer for the first time, and this bottle specifically.
