1 hour decant(decent chunky/fine sediment). A majestic dark purplish magenta color. On the nose: black cherry/plum, nutmeg, oak, smokey earth, cedar. Taste: soft, smooth, juicy wine with blackberry, dark cherry, cedar, earth and a medium plus dry potting soil/cocoa finish. YUM!
Purchased on a recent visit...beautiful indoor/outdoor tasting room featuring their small production wines. If you want to throw down some serious change they offer a terrific multi course food and wine pairing in the underground cellar. — 11 days ago
Needs a bit to open up and show the exotic nose with pineapple, ripe quince, some freshly grated ginger, a whiff of cardamon, a touch of toasted almonds, a hint of dried herbs countering the exotic sweetness. So complex and so enticing.
Gorgeous mouthfeel, full bodied yet so fresh. Very, very elegant with ripe soft yellow orchard apples & white peach, fresh bright acidity and spicy minerality. With time this loses the initial sweet, fruity touch and turns more savoury, mineral, the salty kick in the finish becoming more pronounced. Impeccably poised & balanced. There’s nice energy here and great depth. Elegant yet vibrant.

2020 drinking very well after a short decant - beautiful full body with a very persistent finish. Dark fruits, cassis, smoke and mineral / iron accents - great quality relative to the price — 4 days ago

This was really nice. Not too oaky — 19 days ago
Phenomenal! Dark plum base but layers of exhiberant and concentrated small dark berries and red fruit jump from the glass, but all enveloped in deep, complex earthy tones. Palate is insane, minerality and acidity are tingling, almost sparking on the sides of the mouth, mingling with the very fine lively tannins. So much pleasure without sacrificing any seriousness — 11 days ago
Wednesday random cellar pick. Good. Was expecting some sharpness but there was none. Super smooth and enjoyable. This is the easy drinking kind of wine I like to pair with Italian food. — 21 days ago
