Picked this one because it was on a serious sale and the age of the wine was intriguing. Incredibly happy with this pick. It's Cali in the glass, with the big, ripe tropical (papaya and mango) notes, caramel, honey, and hazelnut notes. It's full-bodied with surprising acidity, keeping it well balanced and much lower alcohol than one would expect with a wine of this style. Very long finish, there's a ton of complexity on this one. I haven't been happier in a long time with an unknown wine purchase in a long time. Tasted August 2014.
