Head out to Napa on Thursday morning for our annual trip, so it’s time to limber up and get ready for some amazing views, food, and wines! I think I bought this a year ago for around $45. Wanted to give it a test drive since we are visiting Hourglass during our trip. Undeniably a fantastic value. Blackberry-compote, sweet graham cracker and raspberries dominate the nose. Balanced texture. Not quite pop and pour, but open for business after 30-45mins. Mexican vanilla, fig, and milk chocolate covered dates on the finish. Definitely a wine to get me excited for the trip! Well done @Anthony Biagi

Imagine taking a deep breadth in the middle of an oak forest on a humid day.

As recommended by @Shay A, I think his notes on the 14 are correct. Definitely blueberry compote. There was still a fairly prominent background of tannins that were a touch more coarse than I otherwise like. Good food wine.

My first time trying this, and it is really terrific and a great value at the price point. Very full and complete on the palate. Lovely blueberry and blackberry fruit on the palate with a hint of baking spices and vanilla. I would definitely buy this again. Kudos @Anthony Biagi !

Ordered 2013 but had to settle for the '14... Still worth the buy though!

This beauty starts with a cocoa powder and has a long voluptuous vanilla finish. Although still a baby, this elegant wine surely delivers
