This has aged really well. Nutty, roasted almond aromas, fruits, somewhat muted, but more savory notes coming through. full and rich on the palate, with the nuttiness coming through. Love aged whites..

Bacon fat, stewed black cherries, sweet and savory on the palate. Smooth velvety tannins, finishes savory. find myself wanting a little more length, although it is not short and does not drop off...I would say this wine has reached its peak. Have a couple more bottles, I think this is the year to drink them...

Highly reductive. Stewed fruits lead me to believe it is a bad or cooked bottle. I hope that's the case. Have a couple more bottles. Will revisit later! Right now, not reccommended!

Smoke, leather dried earth on the nose. Leather, blackberries, black plum, raisens, almost a amarone character, with medium tannins, and a long carmelly finish. Drank this on our 10th Wedding Anniversary. Well worth the wait and it was appropriate! Awesome bottle of wine!

Game, roasted meat, mushroom, black plum, a bit of spice, make this an exceptional wine. Full and broad with medium tannins that persisted on the finish. Wish I had more.

Ahh Cabernet! Dark ruby in color, no change in color on the rim. Dusty earth, cedar, black cherry, cherry cola. Dry mouthfeel, subtle fruit up front, almost no tannins! Very, very soft tannins! I kind of expected a little more out of this wine. Maybe it's the vintage????!

Beautiful ruby red, clear, clean appearance, bing cherry, a hint of sour on the nose, along with spice, which carries over to the palate, a tart freshness in the mouth, which is full of bright red fruits. Tannins are silky smooth and lingering. Looking forward to trying this again with some age! I first tasted this wine at the Chateau cellar in Burgundy.

Classic purple syrah in color, black cherry, blackberries, with a hint of pepper on the nose. Pepper up front and the berry flavors carry over onto the palate. Smooth luscious tannins. This is really good bottle of wine.

spice, leather, burnt rubber on the nose. very tight upon opening and even decanting, but after about an hour, this was really good...My last bottle of this vintage, wish I had more...silky smooth tannins, a little astringent on the back palate, but not offensive. I wish the finish lingered a bit longer, but over all this is a really good of bottle wine.
