Surprised by the generosity, drinking quite well for how young it is. Open-knit, true to place, moderately framed with some true charm to it. Really enjoyed over a few days. Deep red fruit, almost succulent, soaked cherries and lots of licorice root, cedar, cinnamon, flowers and tar. There’s a undertone of earth. From a tannin perspective these appear ripe, with moderate intensity relatively speaking.

Tuolumne Meadows lodge, as Rose is just about to finish the John Muir Trail, solo (!). Soft and balance, intense cherries, correct bitter balance.

A good hour decant did wonders. Really opened up aromatically to reveal its previous shy self. Dark raspberries, strawberries, mint/herbal notes superimposed over some earthy notes and nicely framed by soft tannin to add mouth coating structure. Perfect complement to tonight’s beef tartare and bolognese pasta.

Looking so good today; vivid aromatics of rose petal, leather, anise, almond skin and tart red fruit. Tannins are approachable, acidity well integrated & length is okay but perhaps what holds it back but super enjoyable to drink.

Needs substantial time and/or air but shaping up to be a classic. Naturally the last sip (on day 2) was the best. Gorgeous red fruit, spice, florals and a bit of orange oil. Elegant given time to open up.

Pepper, game, licorice, red cherry, thyme, stem... High acid and elevated to high tannins. 13.5% abv.

Surrounded by ripping vintages the 14 is often overlooked but this is a ripper. So lithe and pure. Florality, raw almond, red fruits, slight leather and anise. Lacey tannins and watery acidity. Ripper
