Left bank style with some serious sagebrush and rosemary notes. Real powerhouse with new world concentration and old world nuance. Love this wine.

Very nice wine, but the oak is coming through a bit, as are the tannins. Delicious with a beautiful roast prime strip loin for Christmas Eve. Fun to try the 2013 next to the 2010 - 2010 definitely more ready for prime time. Decanted 1.5 hours, better with air - should have tried 2.5-3 hrs.

Held onto this one for awhile. Dark fruit flavors, high tannins. Berry lingers.

Oooph, like licking a barrel. Needed more time to open up. Had at Annie Gunn’s.
