Disgracefully strong showing. A lovely gift from our close bud @David L.
In an ethereal place right now. Nose presents with spice box, cinnamon and earth notes. Palette is perfectly balanced with tertiary notes of sage and brown sugar. Always a bitter sweet moment when you taste a brilliant example, of which you only have one. Thanks again, David. Happy new year to you and family. 🥂

Planted at the same time as Kacpsandy by the same winemaker (Helen Turley) and vineyard management company (Piña). Exceptional wine w/ great balance and elegance!

It's about time for this wine. But it will be about time for a long time.

Wow! Fantastic with the Christmas Italian Brijole. Rich yet balanced. Did not over power the dish. Over ripe fruit, velvet mouth. Under stated oak. Simply sublime.

05' Roy Proprietary Red. I always enjoy drinking this wine. I haven't had this wine in a year. Even better than it was the year ago… If you can imagine that. Sweet dark chocolate, black raspberry, soft elegant tannins. A moderate finish. @Mike Rowe all smiles!

Opened up after two hours . Medium to full-bodied. Dark ruby red. The middle and back of the palate opened up nicely . Funky nose, black raspberry, blackcurrant & dark chocolate. The acidity had softened & dissipated nicely.
