Rubber and tar nose; opulent blackberry and raspberry; coarse, textured and nicely balanced; nice concentration on the finish; great QPR here.

1994 Château Pontet-Canet

Pauillac Red Bordeaux Blend more

Rubber earthy nose; blackberry; smooth; tannins a bit tart. Hoping it will improve. There is a tart and rather dry streak in the finish although the soft blackberry does come through.

2010 Kutch Pinot Noir McDougall Ranch

Sonoma Coast more

1/31/2013 - paulst Likes this wine: 95 points

Flowered light black cherry nose; black cherry on palate with complex flavors of light raisen, blackberry and cherry with undertones of vegatables; light tannins that are already nicely integrated but show promse of a great future.
