Popped and poured. No complaints. Medium finish with dark fruit still showing through.

What to make of this? It displays agreeable, bright red fruit, cranberries, Hawaiian Punch, loam, and walnut shell on the nose. The palate is fleshy and flashes potential on entry but it abruptly falls off a cliff and into purgatory. I can't say it's bad, good, or meh. It just is.

Good example of a full-bodied Cali Cab at an excellent price (under 20). Not exactly my favorite style, but quite enjoyable. Probably will buy a few more.

This medium ruby wine offers moderately intense aromas of black cherries, smoke, cocoa and loamy earth. Medium-bodied, fresh, seamlessly alcoholic (14.0%) and with fine-grained tannins, it delivers flavors which mirror the nose. Unfortunately the middle palate thins and the back end is clipped. While not unpleasant, this wine lacks the depth, concentration and finish that would be found on higher-end Pinot Noir offerings. Drink now-2018.

Classic bordeaux profile. Medium bodied, deep red color. Sweet cherries, plum, smokey oak. Soft and elegant with a very dry (almost harsh) finish. This was definitely drank too young, or we needed to do a really long decant. This has the makings to be a great wine in 8-10 years.

Tasted old for a Rose. Some bubbles which were not expected. Fruit was light. Perhaps should be drunk a little younger. That all said, I did by the next vintage.

Unless this was bottle variation, this has changed a lot since our last bottle late last year. Less fruit, more muted, earthiness starting to show. No reason to wait any longer on these.

A big, deep dark blend. Lots of fruit in the nose and on the palate. Love all the Cyrus vintages, this one is another good one.

Old school, wet earth nose reminiscent of a Left Bank Bordeaux. It's like standing on top of a hill with wafts of petrichor in the air. The earthy goodness is countered by cherries, raspberries, and an edge of berry-flavored hard candy. Mid-to-full bodied, with a tasty medicinal finish that is laced with warm, chile de arbol. Underrated and lots of bang for the buck.

I was poured this double blind and had no idea it was so old- not showing any bricking and definitely not over the hill. Only initial give away was the precipitation.

PnP was initially muted, took a couple hours to open up. Gentle tannins and high acidity, touch of raisins. After a couple of hours, clear cab nose and no signs of falling off. Impressive wine.

A Bordeaux blend, with minor amounts of Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec, and Petit Verdot. From the half bottle, slightly tart aroma. The flavour is also slightly tart. I get black currant and black licorice. A good wine but average compared to the field.

Pretty dark purple color. Nose of dark fruit. Black berries, black cherries. Very pure palate. I don't detect any oak at all on the nose or palate. Moderately tannic. Medium to long finish. Palate similar to nose with dark fruits. I think this wine needs some age to open up. Lots of potential. Aerated, then double aerated, the first few glasses with only moderate success in coaxing out more aromas and flavors. More to come...
