Nice to taste this with at least a little age on it, usually goes so fast there's no time. Fruit is still prevalent, but giving way to subtle loaminess, Christmas spices and potpourri.

Sea Smoke is a little bit culty, and it's my favorite. In honor of the #SFGiants in game 7 of the World Series. :)

Good but was hoping for more. Nicely resolved dark cherries, dry cranberry, strawberries, soft smooth earth.

Nice. Raspberry, cola and mushrooms. Rich body and complex fruit. Great acidity. Age would definitely improve it.
