Lower alcohol at %13.5 but not green at all. Nice high toned red fruit.

So it can be done in Napa!

Grateful to have known/worked with Denis on several projects his gifted implementation of various French oak coopers leaves me very impressed.

A toast to a dear friend who left us way to young 🍷🍷.

Surprisingly (over-) ripe for being Denis' style and labeled at only 13.8% alc.
I would think "hedonistic critics" (you know who I mean) would have rated this 98+.

Very young but showing great potential. Good balance. Needs years.
