good currant and graphite flavors, but a little green on the finish

2002 Penfolds Grange

South Australia Shiraz Blend, Syrah more

Just awesome. Bouquet of flower, blueberry, earth, and graphite. Flavors of blackberry, plum, coffee, licorice and mint are added when tasted. Light and graceful vs. expectations. Flavors go on and on. This should last for 20 more years.

2009 Kosta Browne Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

drank with Maria before heading to Fearing's in Dallas. Kosta Browne is my wife's favorite wine, and this bottle did not disappoint. A nose of raspberry and cherry, with hints of sage. Lush and full bodied, dark cherry, cola, mint swirl together and are supported by a touch of herb and graphite...tannins are firm but not obtrusive.

2005 Bodegas Muga Rioja Reserva Selección Especial

Tempranillo Blend, Tempranillo more

consistent with notes of 6-14-2012. However, on this occasion, this was a smooth pop and pour with all the positives of the last bottle and none of the overwhelming acidity. Great nose of plum, vanilla, and tar. the plum, peppercorn, asian spice and earth comes through in a lovely swirl.

    For Harley1199 - I'd love to hold, looking for more as this was my last bottle.

A good peppery syrah, plum and black olive. Has solid depth and length.
