Inky dark with a cedar dominant nose. Dry and tart with puckering tannins on the PnP, 88 pts. Tight as can be with oak overpowering the fruit. Let's see how a day helps. Starting to evolve in the glass with purple fruits and some lemon. Tasted on day 2 and needs a lot of time.

Medium, dark ruby with light bramble nose. Bright fruit with a mineral note, acid focused, Marionberry with lemon notes. Not really AFWE, but the acid keeps the fruit under control, tannins is are well integrated.

Medium dark garnet with red fruit nose. Started out on the fruity side, but after a day, developed a nice tart red berry profile, very nice acid balance with the chewy tannins. Some earthy, forest floor mossy notes add complexity to the red currant fruit.

Medium garnet with cedar and red fruit nose. Lightly dry with light mineral, cedar and tart red fruit. Still a little young, but drinking well. nice acid, medium fruit and tannins with a little bitter on the finish. This should develop into a nicely integrated, more restrained than fruity, with more time in the bottle.

Medium garnet with ripe strawberry nose. Tart berry & cherry fruit, a bit too fruity the first couple nights for my tastes. Developing a more austere profile with some time, sour cherry with stone fruit bitter with chewy tannins on the finish.

6/27/2015 - dsgris wrote: flawed

Medium ruby with some cedar and ripe strawberry nose. it takes a few days to come good after a not too balanced beginning. Most of this vintage has a bright red berry profile, but this is more fruity, pie cherry filling and roast beef. Light acid and tannins with a little bitter on the finish. This one never improved like the others leading me to believe it suffered some heat damage.

Dark ruby with some cola on the nose. Drinking well after being open for several days. A bit of tart fruits initially, one has integrated into a very smoothly drinking wine, medium fruit with light acid and tannins.

Light garnet, dark salmon color with strawberry, tart cherry nose. Open an hour, tart mineral, tart strawberries & red currants. Medium body and fruit, definitely on the AFWE spectrum and drinking like a heavy rose, well balanced with an emphasis on the acid. Liking this a lot after another hour, a good lower 11.11% Alc. summer wine.

Dark garnet with cedar, purple fruit nose. On the PnP, tart red currants, medium fruit with cedar tannins. Quite fresh and lively with an acid focus, some lemon, tart strawberry and tobacco notes for complexity developing with air in the glass. Very nice on the first night, looking for better on night two. I love the acid which should keep this going for some time. open for an hour, the wine has integrated into a well balanced acid driven, light fruited with soft tannins wine. Drinking very well and quite enjoyable.

Dark ruby with ripe plum nose. Lightly dry with some mineral and bitter tannins. A little raw on the PnP, but after a night has smoothed out nicely, medium fruit and body, stemmy whole cluster tannins could use some more time to integrate. Drinks better with food at this time, I do not seem to appreciate WA Merlot that much at this time. Definitely better with food, ham & cheddar on olive ciabatta pops it up a couple of points.

Medium light ruby light red fruit nose. Tart, dry with light fruit of strawberries and red currants, light chewy tannins. Drinking like a Cab Franc Bourgueil with some mineral and restrained fruit. I'm liking these wine starting with the '10s. Still going strong after another couple of days, very soft and velvety mouthfeel with acid and tannins balancing the restrained fruit.

Dark ruby with Kirch nose. Off dry, some tart chewy tannins on the PnP. Bold fruit, ripe cherries. Would work with a nice steak or roast beef, lamb or duck. On night two this is showing some good acid with tart dark berry, cherry. Fuller body without being jammy because of the acid, some lightly bitter tannins on the finish which keeps the score lower. Drinking darn good tonight, cherries with a little iodine, well integrated and balanced, just good and well balanced on the lightly fruity side.
