Fairly marked by oak exhibiting aromas that are a little toasty and creamy with dark slightly jammy and very wild black fruit that shows some, dark mineral and root beer float top notes. Mouth filling, seamless and a bit dense, this is packed with RC cola inflected candied black cherry and blackberry fruit. Big and polished, this finishes with lightly spicy vanilla cream draped fruit. This is a bit of a bruiser and while it’s intense and rich I can’t say that I prefer it to the single vineyard wines. 91pts

This is decidedly oaky on the nose with notes of dried mushroom, caramel, white pepper and allspice accenting the reticent core of blackberry fruit. This is large-scaled in the mouth, though it is quite soft and creamy. There's some attractive fruit here but it lacks a middle, with the wine fairly dropping off the palate. The fruit perks up on the back end, aided by some wood spice and showing a nice wild red cherry note before fading quickly on the modest finish. It seems like there is a lot here, but the wine feels fairly closed at this point. It’s big, that’s for sure, and the finish shows some nice potential, but today this is a bit simple and dull. 86pts
