Surprisingly, this has become more saccharine with age. Not as good as previously.

Wow. I don't know what happened in the interim since I last had this, but it really turned the corner. The winemaker is Adam Henkel, formerly of Harlan, who seems to have really crafted a sleeper. Wonderfully integrated tannins! Dark cherry and some other red fruits on the palate. Excellent finish.

My taste buds were a bit fried from the earlier events. As always, this is a pleasant wine.

Vanilla, plum and baking spice on nose. Big juicy berries on palate that are well balanced and grounded. @Ed Dickey it's a steal

Happy Canyon is a great AVA for Bordeaux varietals and this is a good example. Right balance between fruit and tannins.
