In a really good spot right now. Drinking with a lot of black cherry and cola on the nose and palate. Goes kind of brambly and noticeably darker in the middle. The finish is remarkably tannic. Stiff, lots of new oak. This wine has a long life ahead of it. The 06 when tried over a year ago was really just starting to integrate. I have zero willpower to keep these as long as they need to be kept, but they are certainly good young and will show well for a while.

Amazing wine. Aptly named since they were the true Scions of Cab in Alexander Valley (planted in 1963!). This Cab, Cab Franc, Merlot, PV blend is DELICIOUS. Nose of black fruit, chocolate. Entry has acidity, blackberry, leather, smoke, toasty and full bodied. The middle is darker, with fig jam...Herbal. the finish is shorter, acidic, stiff young oak tannin. This will lay down for a LONG TIME. Best Scion I've had, and either the best or number 2 RYEW wine I've ever had.
