2014, in its youth you can smell the petite verdot and it isn't shy on the oak

Minty fresh, much more balanced than I was anticipating. Probably my favorite pairing with the BBQ we had

Right after opening the wine it was awesome. We thought it would get even better with opening up. It lost the mid and finish after about 45 minutes. Our fault. Next time we will drink faster.

Roasted coffee dominates nose, with nutmeg and cedar, bit of cassis popping through, some coffee soaked herbs....man! Way too oaky on palate, nothing to be tasted! Total $250 crap. 2011 vintage.

Beautiful! Fabulous bouquet. Blueberries, blackberries, cherries, chocolate, and coffee. Full-bodied with a lingering finish. Outstanding now, but will no doubt improve with age.
