My Rating 91 Points. 
Price $13.

 

Dark inky in color with a purplish rim.

Intense Californian nose of vanilla, oak blackberries, figs, cooked raisins, blueberries, dried plums, dark chocolate, coffee, licorice and peppercorn.

Dry on the palate, and fruit forward, with blackberries, American oak, blueberries, sweet plums, peppercorn, cloves, vanilla, coffee, caramel and spices.

Full bodied with long thick legs and medium+ acidity which will take it to the next level in a few years.

Long finish with slightly bitter tannins and peppercorn.

Still young, but drinking well now. Will be Great in 3 to 5 years.

Loved it by itself( but Didn’t like the screw top.)

13.9% alcohol by volume.
