I was very pleasantly surprised by this wine, only because I picked it up in a friends and family sales so my expectations weren't super high. Lush body, well integrated oak, quality mountain fruit, it probably deserved a better occasion than my Wednesday night pasta and meatballs!

Strong tobacco on the nose and a bit on the palette. Very smooth. Ripe cherries lingering. Thanks Mike Campbell!

Nice fruit. Could still sit a while. Tannins still prominent but not overpowering.

Wonderful blend that keeps you guessing into a labyrinth of taste from the different grape varietals
