Don’t go near this for at least five years, when it’s likely to add a point or two to its resumé. A Gold Award winner at the 2021 Critics Challenge International Wine & Spirits Competition.

Dark in the glass, this gorgeous Cabernet offers up a beautiful halo of ripe acacia blossom, pretty cassis and cocoa-powdered blackberries lifted on a red-fruit scented minerality - you can taste the volcanic soils of Diamond Mountain. With just a bit of air it turns cologne-like, a beguiling and complex array of fruit, earth and oak. Its chiseled and precise on the palate with a panoply of red and black fruits riding a beam of dusty, bramble-coated minerality on a wave of chewy tannins. Gout de terroir Spectacular!

Check-in tasting 6.23.21 - Like 50 and 82, this wine is just pure oak at this point and a total waste of time to open. I wouldn't touch these for another year or so.
