With my boys here in Detroit. It’s 5p somewhere...
Nice tobacco notes on the nose. Black cherries on the palate with, earth and a meaty dimension. Pure silk and crushed velvet on the mid-palate. Finishes with hints of truffle - outstanding.

A classic from @Shay A showing lots of power and purple fruit, some cedar/wood notes, very polished but still a baby at age 12. It should age and evolve gracefully.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Dark! This is Napa-esque. Extraction city with black and red fruit...cassis and clove on the nose. Fresh squeezed blackberries and charred grilled cherry. Tannic and in need of a few years to enter a prime drinking window. This was one of my bottles with the help of

Drinking better overall than the last time. Still a little acidic and the tannins are rough but I think this one is going to improve with more time.

Starting to show secondary characteristics, though still plenty young.
