Tried alongside the Sullenger, and in comparison, this needs time away. Excellent structure with the heavy cherries and oak, but will absolutely benefit from at least 5 years in the bottle.

Drinking the 2013 in late 2019.! Deep dark ruby color. Thick long lasting legs. Rich bouquet loaded with dark berries and oak. Flavor bursting with dark berry, oak and cherry. Smooth finish with very low tannins. Love this wine

Had several bottles with a group of colleagues- all were decanted for over an hour. I am a fan of heavy cabs and was impressed with the depth and body of this wine and the smooth finish with very little tanins. Highly recommended with a filet minion!

Deep purple coloration. On the nose, cherry, vanilla, sweet anise and strawberry. On the palate, black cherry, smokey Earth (Rutherford dust) and vanilla. A medium- long finish. Balanced tannins. Very nice.
