A few wines from last week’s 4th Friday event! In line with their typical style, this was rich and decadent but had an incredibly long finish to it. Dark chocolate, blue and black fruits and baking spices on the nose. Dense on the palate with some added licorice, baked plum and a nice balance of oak without being overwhelming. Fine grain tannins. Nice.

Deep and dark ruby red. Very young but powerful nose. Pencil shavings, cassis, sweet spices, cinnamon, dark cocoa, blackberries and dark gravel. Heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Seems like a touch of chalk with lots of black fruits, spices, and bit of minerality. Long and lingering finish. Drink from 2018 till 2038. (93+)

This is a full octane wine. Needed 45-60 minutes to open up. Quite delicious! Great start to the annual Deer Valley Ski trip!
