Right in my wheelhouse for early drinking. Nicely balanced, good everything. Drink up - not a long timer.

Popped and poured before dinner. Great nose. Red fruit, cola and spice on the palate. This wine has plenty of life left. Very enjoyable.

I have to backpedal on my previous review. The sharpness that dominated my previous tasting is still there but is integrated with the fruit and tannin, making the wine a good experience. It might even better in a couple of years as the different components integrate further.

A bit stemmy, but good finish, nice mouthfeel, fruit still primary, the longer it's open the better it gets. The green from the stems seems to dissipate. Dont notice the alcohol.

Nice, smooth, a little acidity on the aftertaste. Wife didn't like it, I did.

Initially this was all stems and bad green stuff, but after half an hour, that all disappeared and a subtle dark red fruit note was dominant. Decent finish and mouthfeel, so a good wine all around…just give it some time to open.

Agree with some notes from others. Good cherry and raspberry fruit, a little peppery, with modest acid and tannin (and alcohol - a welcome change from the usual Zin). Drinks well now.

4th Saturday Brown Bagger (R&D's): Licorice, green herbs and black fruit. Has a nice meaty quality on the palate. Decent finish, if a bit on the short side of medium.

Light golden yellow, fresh subtle nose of biscuits, citrus and hints of toastiness.
Round and buttery mouth-feel, showing butterscotch, citrus and pear. Smooth and mellow with some complex notes. Medium finish.

Opened by R&C to kick off the evening at our favorite local BYO place. This has a pale copper/pink color and a soft mousse. Aromas of mineral, strawberry and rose petals. It has a fairly coarse texture and flavors of berry, melon and vanilla cream with nice underlying acidity. Could add a point or two if the texture softens.

Opened and poured into humongous (Davis Family) Burgundy glasses about 30 to 45 minutes before tasting. Opened up VERY slowly over the course of the next two or three hours. Somewhat reticent nose, even after a couple hours. Dark cherries on the palate and (thank God) no cola notes. Medium weight and somewhat austere. Aside from the cherries, not a whole lot of varietal characteristics. Nice wine and quite elegant. Still fairly tannic.

The fact this was a small format 375ml bottle may have contributed to its aging to the point of being in the last stage of its drinking window for this twelve year old. Lasting that long speaks well for this label, indicates a pretty robust and stable wine, and appropriate cellar conditions. Glad I pulled this from the cellar and caught it in time, appropriately for a weeknight wine and pizza experience.

Dark inky purple colored, medium bodied, at twelve years of age the fruit has turned to bramble black berry accented raisin tones with a layer of leather and tobacco.
