A wine of many great parts but not quite satisfying the part of my palate craving balance. A good example of a wine that really needs a rib-eye to enjoy with

We offer this wine at $48, which is an insanely cheap price for a Spring Mountain cab that Galloni gave 94 points. Dry farmed from 40 year old wines all the way up Spring Mountain next to Pride and Barnett. Family owned, small producer

Christmas line up winner right here. Knocked every other bottle flat. So much going on here and very rustic and surprisingly clean and light at the same time. Value is a ridiculous understatement.

On the menu at Octavia in SF. Excellent full-bodied red with a hint of smoke. Perfect with filet.

Rich and peppery aroma and then flavors of cherries, oranges and blackberries. Moderate tannins and a light acidity carry a very nice finish.

Wonderfully balanced bottle. Dark berry fruits with some herbs, leather, and vegetal notes. Grippy tannins counterbalanced by excellent acidity. Just right. Could not stop drinking.
