Yup. Plush Blue/black fruit, eucalyptus, and a violet nuance. Mouth staining with a rich and dark fruited smack to the palate with firm depth and balanced acidity rounds it out. Yup.

A mere baby. Luscious dark fruit begs you to take another sip.

The nose on this...ripe and sweet blackberry and raspberry, like that in the middle of a jelly roll, lavender and flowers; palate is rich, dark fruit, full mouthfeel; this is deeper and darker than the Quivet Kenefick but still very approachable; a bit of heat on the initial entry but time in the glass helps.

Lacking any structure. Sort of surprised. Love mike's wines otherwise.

Decanted for an hour. Dark purple color. Intense nose of red fruit, vanilla and cedar. Full body, smooth with the typical opulence of the 2012, with hints of spice. Great balance. Long finish. I love this vineyard. Drinks great right now.

Not the best showing for this Quivet tonight. Lacking in the mid-palate.
