PnP. Dark red color with purple tones. Baking spices and cedar dominate with dark fruit. Refined and high quality. Medium plus depth and a big wine. Seems to have some Spanish/South American influence. Was really impressed.

Sigh. Such a lovely experience: a treat for the senses. 2013 was a magnificent year, and after 9 years this one was really coming together. (Fortunately I have two more of this vintage; I will try to wait because this wine has years of string drinking ahead.)

This is an estate wine, and Steve Burgess manages his property with goats to keep the underbrush cleared. I don’t know if that makes a difference in the taste but I do envy those goats who get to spend their days on that lovely Mount Howell slope.

Lots of people talk about the flavors, and the finesse, and the balance, and the succulence of this wine. It is lush and beautiful but built with a restraint and depth that will make your meal sing: even if, like us, you are serving burgers off the grill. With this wine, it will be a memorable experience.

A lush fruit bomb. Don’t think this is a long cellaring wine. Time to enjoy.! Nice wine for everyday drinking.
