This has developed magnificently over the past two years or so, and now resembles a top-notch Cote de Nuits Burgundy. Gorgeous, cool-climate personality, originating from grapes in the "true" Sonoma Coast area in far northwest Sonoma County. Envelops the nose in complex savory, spicy, and earthy sandalwood notes on top of a deep dark charcoal/black fruit core. Round and beautifully textured and lingering in the mouth and finish. Muscular yet smooth and mouth-coating, drinking really well at age 5. - HK 2017-10-01
