Holding up nicely! Great acid, structure and texture... wonderfully tarry. And also nostalgic; it’s the year I started at RMW... what fun.

I don't know about y'all but buying winery direct has a positive impact on everyday drinkers like these. It has a wonderful nose of dark fruit, oak and a bit of char. Full bodied.

Must have been a brawny lad, but has mellowed into old age. Drinking well now after 20+ yrs

2011 Vintage. Garnet color with promising cassis, tobacco, cherry and dried herb aromas. On the palate, it's energetic, and juicy with a pleasing texture and easy going cassis, black cherry, and black and red currant flavors. Medium finish. Nice value @ $28

Blackberry, cassis, licorice, eucalyptus, vanilla, mossy earth, pepper and oak. Great structure and quite tannic.

Classic Napa cab aromas, nice balance of ripe fruit and oak with good follow through, acidity and sweet tannins. The wine checks in at 14.5 ABV on the label, but drinks like it's at least 15 to 15.5 and is quite hot on the nose and palate.
