Nice fruit, very extracted but very light in color (bright red rim with darker core). Oak dominant now but may show well in a few years.

Rock pile zin on the nose and Russian river Pinot on the nose. I don't understand this wine. For me it has no cabernetness going on

Absolutely spectacular bottle. Incredibly elegant packed full of black jammy fruit and a gorgeous finish.

2011 was an issue? Not for this vineyard.

Every now and then you get a wine that grabs your attention. This bottle does just that. Can smell it four foot away from the decanter-tar and exotic spice whiff of asphalt, hint of green that blows off. So balanced nothing jumps out on the palate. Fresh and bright on the palate-Currant, licorice, graphite and loamy earth envelope the palate. Finish gives hints of French oak then tames with soft creasing tannins. Wonderful!

Very nice, smooth drinking wine. With age will be a real spectacular. At least a 93. Enjoy it if you can find it.

This is a really cool wine. Red fruit with a cherry and some sweetness. I really like it. It is full of flavored and spices.

This is really fantastic. Gorgeous, deep Cabernet flavors. I've been really impressed by 2011s from Pritchard Hill.
