Great wine hiding under some significant Brett taint, of smoky bacon/band aids.

Couldn't get past the acid in this wine - just too much, (and I like acidic wines) and out of balance. I doubt this wine will ever recover with time.

Red Rhone Blend more

Big, bold, intense, dark purple fruits, a little tannin and heat. This is a huge, intense wine that will go another 10 easily.

Plum preserves, a hint of licorice, jammy sweet fruit but not over the top. Soft and lush on the palate. Just a great wine. Drink now or over next ?5yrs.

This was surprisingly outstanding, but in a somewhat elegant style, Barnyard on the nose, charcoal, a hint of licorice, white pepper. Balanced, nice acidity.

Really good, but in an intense new world style. Unbelievable fruit and concentration, but some searing heat on the finish. Milk chocolate, coffee. this was a little over-the-top for me, but a great wine nonetheless. 93

Fairly ripe and rich in style, for an Italian wine. All components can be tasted here, although I wouldn't have guessed cab franc was this high 77%. Nicely done, 93+.

Honey, melon, a hint of smoke, less acid than expected. I am a novice with white burgundy, but this was unremarkable. I was expecting lots of secondaries, but I didn't get any.

Dark, brooding Pinot, rhubarb, unsweetened black cherry pie, bitterness (oak, stems?) just enough acid - no elegance here. Not a lot of secondaries, holding up but lacking anything special. I will say impressive for Cali Pinot, 10 yrs old.

Dark, dusty, tannic, adequate fruit but needs time for dominant tannins to resolve - hold for 2-3 years.
