Very nice bottling.

Very dark purple, clean. On the nose, it is Californian but subdued. Taste was a nice dark berry with good acidity, nice balance, and enough complexity (cedar, minerals, etc) to be interesting. Good long finish. $37 per bottle purchase recently.

One of the last of the old family owned vineyards. Have made loads of posts on their super juice in the past. WW

I think I understand catching things at their peak now. This bottle appears now to be fully opened and showing off. Tannins fully resolved so from front to back, just great juice, still very clean. Dense dark fruits, berries, some hints of mint(?), but still not heavy and good mouthfeel, sexy, and long finish. Half a bottle went wayyyy to quickly...kept the other half for tomorrow.

Always two steps behind and two steps to the left of the master [img][/img]

Just looked in me rear-view and see som-un tail-gating! Just jesting ... you were probably on the 3rd bottle. WW [img][/img]
