Very concentrated and sweet. In some ways tasted like a mild or light port wine. Very enjoyable bottle,, but not what I expected.

Lately, I have been drinking the 09 Gigondas and it is probably unfair to compare this bottle to an 09. The fruit was there, but it was muted. The tannis were broken down and the wine was very smooth, but a bit bland.

I really was looking forward to enjoying this wine based on the fantastic bottle I had from a previous vintage. That bottle tasted like a chocolate malt with a bit of red fruit. This bottle was a bit astringent and lacked the malted milkshake taste and most of the red fruit. Overall, not a bad bottle for $15 - $20, but it that was nice price.....

Great wine. Cherry and raspberry flavors were strong that I expected. I would actually say the flavor that came through was more of a cherry pie. It was a nice pinot, but a bit different than anything I have experienced. I actually felt that this could have been a really good, really heavy Cru Beaujolais. Great wine

Really drinking well. This was my last of 6 bottles. It still had more youth than I expected. Red fruits, bit of spice, mellow tannins. Considerable sediment

This was a tough wine. I purchased 2 bottles in 2003. I recall the first one was pretty tough to drink. There was a tremendous amount of barnyard and dark undertones to the wine. When I tried the second bottle a few nights ago, the barnyard was not as strong as I recalled, but it was still there to extent that I struggled to get through a single glass

I was so looking forward to drinking this wine, but it paled in comparison to the Syrah from SLO - Susan's Hill that we opened prior to this bottle. It did not seem well integrated and gave the impression that the flavors were either muted or watered down.

Much better than previous bottle. It had a nice, deep dark red fruit flavor & I started to notice browning around the edge of the glass. If you have a bottle, probably should drink while it is at it's peak.

Fantastic bottle. Initially, the wine had a lot of oak, but the red fruit started to come through after 15 - 20 minutes of decanting. Beautiful wine that is drinking well.

This color was dark red / violet. As I decanted the wine, I noticed just a bit of brown.

I did fast a few faint red fruit note, but the astringency of this wine took over.

It was big.

Agree with comments from November 2011 - the wine is in a clumsy phase. I would wait a few more years.... This bottle did not taste like a CdP. Prune/raison was the primary flavor with some soft red fruit and leather in the background.

Remember drinking the bottle after a big Duckhorn and realizing the stark contrast. While this was a great bottle, I now have a better understanding of why a Cur Beaujolais should always be served before anything else!

I was a bit concerned about this bottle. In 2005, I purchased a number of Barolo's WS rating 94+ and have been sadly disappointed with each.

As I am trying to drink through the wines with the lowest Cellar Tracker rating, this wine was next on the list.

I was pleasantly surprised. It took about 2 hours to open-up and reveal the light red fruit. Some tannins were still evident in the wine and I could pick-up a bit of a stew plum, but overall - much better than expected. Will hold the remaining bottle to enjoy with friends.
