Had this wine for my birthday dinner at Ruth’s Chris. Amazing wine!! Deep garnet colored, floral nose with blueberry and oak. Perfectly ripe blue/dark fruit, tannins smoothing out, perfectly balanced and structured. This wine drank great through a 2 hour meal. I need to pick up some these ‘16s as they are drinking great now and will certainly age for a long time. — 17 days ago
Gentle nose of plum, cassis, cedar, leather and lovely subtle purple flowers. Medium to full body. The palate is supple and seamless. Good fruit concentration sprinkling with black pepper and fresh herbs. Fresh acidity and well constructed mellow tannins.
Will enjoyable now, patience will be rewarded.

My second bottle of this, and a few more months of bottle age have helped. It’s got a little grassy thing, but it’s very subdued and more sweet than sharp. Some nice ripe fruit, and a hint of vanilla. In the mouth it’s rounded and soft, very polite for an SB. Nice wine to help the cooking along. — 17 days ago
