Very dark crimson. Lots of blueberries, cardamom, and a hint of bacon on the nose. Medium to full bodied, blackberries, black pepper, well integrated tannins, good acid, dark chocolate, and a medium to long finish. Its in a very good place right now.

Very well balanced cab. Drinks better with food than alone

The cork was a little crumbly, but, fortunately, the wine was still quite fine. (And I know better than to NOT run a Wellington through a filter, even when I'm not concerned about cork crumbs!)
Mellow and soft, but not at all flabby. Definitely getting the tobacco and cedar and dark fruits others have mentioned. Magnificent with a mesquite-grilled strip steak for the holiday weekend.

Not seeing 'overwhelming' fruit @ PnP, but clearly still primary and lacking balance the first day. By day three/four in the fridge this settled down into a fine Wellington. Drink now, but not without a leisurely decant.

Popped the cork and immediately poured a glass. Initial nose is dominated by cherries. After a few minutes in the glass I still get cherries although not as dominant. First drink yields tart fruit, blackberries and raspberries. Enjoyed with grilled strip steak, roasted vegetables and peorgies paired well. A little spice came out when paired with the meal.

A bit less fruit, a bit more bottle bouquet than last time. Tannins are still present but sweeter. Nice long finish. Getting better with age, like a well made cab should. Drinks like a $40-50 bottle.

NV Wellington Vineyards The Duke 11

Sonoma County Red Blend more

5/20/2015 - merryberry Likes this wine: 87 points

In the light, a very pretty, clear ruby. Raspberry, vanilla, and gummy bear nose. Medium bodied, cranberries, bing cherries, more tannins than you'd expect at this price, pepper, cocoa, and a medium length, somewhat sappy finish. Easily over-delivers.

Took a few minutes to open up, but then was full of dark fruit with Asian long pepper, vanilla, and leather. Excellent after the first 15 minutes or so. Still mostly primary, but in a nice spot.

Excellent aromatics - blackberry jam, baking spices, and on the palate a nice freshness that just worked quite well. Great wine. Hid the 15% alcohol quite well also.

Opened almost an hour before dinner, poured through Vinturi. Wonderfully integrated, although peppery spice was a bit much at first. Probably could use at least a few more years to fully balance out. My other bottle will sit in the cellar for minimum 5-10 years more. I enjoy every one of Peter's wines that I have opened.

One of my favorite inexpensive Merlots. Great body and mouthfeel, robust fruit that stands up well to most foods.

This bottle had a bit of an acidic flavor to it, which I do not remember from my last bottle. Perhaps this is now past its prime age, or perhaps my bottle was flawed?

Last bottle, and the best one yet. Tobacco, leather, focused cherries, and a long finish. Under $15? Wow.

Really drinking well. I'll probably hold my last 06' until at least next year. Peter is a fantastic winemaker, his retirement makes me sad every time I open up one of his bottles. The victory is always a solid bottle!

Raspberry cream and blackberry compote with well integrated oak and soft tannins. Fruit forward, yet restrained and elegant. Smooth, balanced and delicious.

Deep garnet purple in the glass. Nose is shy at first. Cassis and coffee on the palate. Soft tannins and medium plus acidity. Holding its own thanks to limited malolactic. A great food wine.

Initially almost overwhelmingly fruity, but with a little bit of air the restraint started to show and it balanced out. Nice Wellington Cab, as expected. Drink now with a decant/air or sit on it for a year or three, doesn't matter.

Left to decant for about 90 minutes. The nose gives off aromas of cherries. In the mouth I got hints of oak. The finish is dry yet still leaves a taste of cherries, almost jam-like, minus the sweetness of jam. Looking forward to enjoying this with steak.

For the price this is a very good wine, but compared to the 07 its lacks intensity and seems flat. I hope it gets better since i have 4 more.

This wine is in a great place right now. Color is deep red, not yet bricking. Big nose of fresh ripe blackberries, mission figs, fennel, sarsaparilla, leather, and hints of white pepper. Palate says blackberry and pepper, with a slightly bitter, long leathery finish. Still has plenty of tannin and will likely continue to improve over the next few years. A nice balance of fresh and secondary flavors. I'm ecstatic that I still have a bottle remaining! Hoping I can find more of this at a decent price.
