I guess if you screwed up CDP in 2012 you should probably consider a career change 😃. Delicious, and drinking well too. Cellar some of this for another 7-10 if you can.

Bit of funk, blew off. Almost tarry underbrush, deep red fruit. Beautiful silky texture that finishes long. Keeps opening up to reveal more dark black cherry fruit

Solid. Reliable. Delicious. Smoke and pepper and dark cherry fruit. After lean, steely Barbarescos this was like warm chocolate cake
