Just concluded our annual Fall seclusion into the Rangeley lakes region of Maine, mobile service up there is mostly non-existent, after several days I am posting again.

8hr decant. Nose of oak/cedar/cherry, spicy raspberry. Palate has raspberry/cedar jam, mocha dust, many years to go... Next bottles should be 2026+

I thought this might be a good partner to a simple homemade bolognese and it proved so. 4 hr decant and this is a silky beast. @Severn Goodwin‘s notes from 2018 apply. Lots of cedar, oak, and Napa mountain notes. Red fruits play third fiddle. Burley and beautiful.

97 degrees in the Sacramento valley (hey, they say it's a dry heat, but damn it's still hot)!!....time for some pool, pizza, and Zin! Pop and pour. A mystical dark ruby red. On the nose: cherry, vanilla, spice. Taste: dark cherry, blackberry, pepper, some currents and chocolate on the end.

Deep, rich nose - raspberry purée and baking spices stand out. Red forest berries with secondary cedar, bark, and tobacco flavors. A slight hint of alcohol on the finish, but impressively well integrated. Feels like a fireside, winter wine.
