12’ Mark Herold White Label. Had this cab a year ago. It never truly opened up like it did in 2015/16/17. Still slightly shut down (Need to revisit in a year)Truly coming to life with a bit more air.
Color- Dark purple. You can smell it from two feet away, as you pour it into the decanter.
Dark-ripe strawberries, blueberries , black currant, spicy tobacco, black licorice.
Drinkable(now)age-worthy potential of this wine is there. 10+ great years left in this beautiful Cab.

Needs air then opens to an opulent wonder, stupid good.

Second Wine for thanksgiving dinner. Deep ruby red. Better the second day with some stinky notes, forest floor, dark berries, and some herbal notes. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium to medium plus bodied. Dark berries and herbal notes on the palate. Some light greenery too. Overall a very impressive 2011 bottling. Drink till 2022.

Complex and not easy but worth it. Kept it around for two days and it was worth it.

Concentrated fruit, blackberry compote, great balance of acidity and tannin. Needs some time to develop, but amazing wine overall

13' Mark Herold White Label. I thought we grabbed a 2012😬. Just a tremendous bottle of wine after a two hour + decanting! In 3/4 years 👍 96+ it's that good!
