'13. A little bit more tannic than the Booker vnyrd. Can you taste 7% rousanne and tempranillo? Maybe in secondary development in a decade. Easier to see where this one will go long term, still easy to drink now.

It was not good. Nearly sweet on the palate. Just remakes of over ripe fruit with no structure. Major disappointment

Another absolute beast. The fruit and the winemaking here are world class, impressive blend of mismatching varietals that come together to create something greater than the sum of its parts. Had high 90pt potential, but a little detectable heat on the finish dampened things a tiny bit. It will last a very long time, but I would love to revisit in 5-6yrs.

Deep ruby and purplish red. Layered nose with black olives, dark fruits, anise, and a little woody. Love the complexity and layers in the nose. A touch of floral too. Full bodied and heavy tannins (8/10). Savory attack with olives and then layers of dark fruits. Great iron notes and a touch of gravel. Long and never ending finish. Drink till 2032.

Showed ripe at first but opened beautifully. Good stuff.

This rocks. Rich, dark fruit, hint of anise, earth and iron... plush texture.

Initially the nose presents huge amounts of white and black pepper, but with air it reveals jammy red and dark fruits, licorice and game. Fair amount of pepper and spice on the palate, ends with a good finish.

PNP and What a beautiful wine. Beautiful fruit concentration without being over extracted or sappy. Unbelievable complexity. Something new almost every sip. Gonna be tough to keep my hands off this one, but it still has many years ahead of it:)
