The body is medium. The wine has bright texture and was simply delightful.

Nice
Dark fruit and smoke on nose.
Front fruit and mid palate fruit - well balanced
Oak provides a good finish, strong w/out astringent or overpowering.
Glad I have 1 more in the cellar

Seems somewhat disjointed. Pear and peach notes are attractive, but there is bitterness and a little heat. Could still come together.

If I knew that these would age so effortlessly and become better with each bottle I had, this would have been a case purchase. Really a crowd pleaser with Italian sausages baked with chenin blanc and peppers, onions, artichokes, and mushrooms. The nice acidic and mineral backbone that hold this wine together and the subdued waxy orchard fruit, green pears and passionfruit, but with that ruby red grapefruit, to keep this fresh with such a diverse set of food. We also had an olive and feta salad and the mozzarella, basil and tomatoes going, and this was great and even the people that usually stick to the cheaper, mass public brands loved this wine. Too bad its my last bottle.

Bright fruit, good acidity and mouthfeel, oak is extremely dominant and got worse the longer it was opened to the point of undrinkable.

Bouquet is mild.
Cherry and plums and some spice like cinnamon. There is a little piquante to it. We like it. Had with good steaks grilled outside tonight.

Has a nice roundness and lingering finish. More personality closer to cellar temperature. An interesting wine, but not to my personal preference ultimately

Very similar to the prior bottle, does not have any sweetness but is certainly ripe and a little rich. Interesting and different.

Expressive nose of cherry, plum and just a great mouthfeel with fine tannins, a little earthy and a medium to long finish.

Pale straw yellow. Nose: Meyer lemon, honeysuckle, nutty, straw. No florals or herbs, the nose is all about the Semillon save some Sauvingnon Blanc stone. Palate: medium body, lush and well integrated mouthfeel. Noticeable but not bright (though not dull either) acidity. Seamless. Meyer lemon again along with honey, almond, and a touch of condensed milk. White pepper. Slight touch of violet. Finish: persists for quite some time showing a mirror image of the palate. The white pepper does step up on the back end. Overall this wine, which was my first introduction to great white wine, does not disappoint in a warm vintage. I know Buty says this wine can age a decade, but I doubt it has the heft to take on enough interesting dynamics to wait that long. This has another year to be enjoyed in its current vivacity before it starts to mellow into middle age. If it had greater weight and sweetness I'd suggest holding bottle for a few years, but as it sits I recommend drinking up.

Drank over a two hour period, the nose presents cinnamon, cloves, chocolate, dark fruit and a smattering of the characteristic blood tinge that comes from the Syrah in the blend. The palate is fantastic, filled with currant, cinnamon,caramel, blackberry and cherries. The backbone is solid with distinct, smooth tannins and fresh acidity. This is a full bodied blend with a well stated combination of Cab and Syrah and has plenty of life left in it, I will cellar more without hesitation.

Hazy notes from last night. Popped and poured, this drank very well again, similar notes to the last bottle. Very suave, polished and plush, but not too modern or too smooth, with some nice funky and earthy notes on a concentrated, nicely structured.long finish. Lovely now, but will last years (A-).

Very interesting right now. Pretty deep gold color. Has some oxidized aromas, with petrol. There is still very bracing acidity that lingers for a long time. Fun wine.

One of the finest wines we have experienced. Better the second day. Smooth taste with complex finish and structure.The combination of Syrah and cab in the right proportion makes the nose moderate with hints of plum and apple and the taste with raisins, plums and the flavor I call fig but my palate isn't that good to get more than one or two. Buy this wine and all you can get.

On opening, a pear bomb with a hint of minerality. The next day, and a little colder, smooth and rich, but not creamy with stone fruit. I thnk this could stand another year before peaking. But, a really good Chardonnay.

Abig malbec with little tannin. The best Malbec I have tasted in recent years. The price point is high compared to South Americans the taste is full bodied. Gorgeous color. and ripe with fruit, tastes of plum earth and maybe a hint of raisin. Highest recommendation. In a blind tasting with five others, 9 out of ten people in our group selected this as the best.
