Elegant with acidic backbone. Black cherries/plums, dark, deep, vanilla oak, mocha tones developed in the glass. Youthful, showing great promise

Odd stinkiness ?sulphurous? confected nose. A touch acrid/bitter with a baked fruit quality - a bit like Amarone
Thick texture, creamier, rich with warm finish. "Classic" in the sense of Jaguar rather than BMW/Mercedes
A bit of taint on the nose - Brett?, but this grows on me and actually I rather warm to it. A rough leather sofa that doesn't look promising, but one can sink into in comfort.... ...and the dog likes sitting there too!
Ooh yes! Warm and spicy - like Stollen or fruitcake (tones of Liquer Muscat). I am seduced by this wine!
Very good, classic wine. Nothing much wrong with it, but it didn't bring anything special to the party in comparison with the other wines of the flight.
This is more like a Bordeaux with absolute classic tanin-backed structure and elegance with multi-layered palate (?Influence of Petit Syrah?)
A real character, this one. Hard to resist its rough charms - a Del Boy of a wine. I like it!
Relatively sharp/acrid -not so good
Warm and fruity. Seems alcoholic and youthfully exuberant yet very much in balance. Really lovely wine.
A bit stinky with nicely acidic well-defined fruit. Typical Geyserville.
A bit bretty. O.K. But well past-it
This is more like it. Very good indeed. Quite a simply fruity nature with spritzy rhubarb. A voluptuous palate and finish. Great body, but no supermodel
Remarkably vivid tasting, almost youthful. A tribute to the ageing potential of this wine.
Cloudy and soupy mush (or mushroom soup?). Packs a fair alcoholic kick, though! Well past sell-by date.
