Sweet, Rich, blueberry nose, like a fresh can of pie filling

Supe easy drinking, this is a medium to heavy bodied, well extracted blend of Rhône varietals, total Cali style.
Blueberry with blackberry bramble, twigs and all, silky smooth, yet a little more going on in here. The Tension (Ha!) of the wine needs air to really escape, so at least a couple of hours.
Plump, plump, plump fruit.
With just a bit o’ heat on the back, this can be an easy wine to Netflix up with, or like me - binging “Atlanta”..

Reminiscent of some Orin Swift wines. Fruit forward-a little effervescent( which is a fun surprise) light, zingy finish. Great value

Full bodied wine. Fruit forward and full bodied. Great wine for the price! Drinks great with steak any night of the week.

I've had older vintages that drank very good. This one is still young and would've benefited from some decanting or more aging. Tons of graphite, leather and tannin.

Feels like a classic California cab. Lots of fruit, slight spice on the finish
