Great provenance and structure in this gem. Earthy and soulful with Classic tea leaf and impressive acidity will keep this drinking well for some time.

First Sterling Reserve - mostly Diamond Mountain - still a bit of a brut - but long and tasty.

Killer wine by Ric Forman. So complex and still so fresh. Insanely silky texture. Black cherries, button mushroom, chalk, mint, mulch, fresh prune. Yum.

Fine example of old style Cal Cab. 12pct alcohol and nice acidity. Held up really well.
