Nice!

Has anyone opened an ‘11 Saitone lately? I want to do my last one justice.
Sorry for the late reply. Within a week or so we opened the 2011 Heritage, Dolinsek and Saitone. IMHO, drink up the Dolinsek soon and enjoy the other two now or over the next couple of years.

2013 Dolinsek - Seemed a bit out of balance to my palate, with strong peppery notes on the front end and a gush of acidity taking over on the back end. Not really in my wheelhouse, either alone or with food. Followed over almost 5 hours; it held up just fine but didn’t improve.

Thanks! No spritz on the Saitone?

No spritz.
I've had quite a few of the 2011 Saitone over the past 8+ years, never any spritz...and now that I'm thinking about it, only spritzy Bedrock I've ever encountered was the 2009 RRV Zin.

If they are like earlier released cabs, you’re going to want to give them time.

Purchased the Monte Rosso and the Sonoma Cabs as well. Definitely going to sit on the Monte Rosso but will probably have to pop one Sonoma and let the other one sleep.
