Nothing incredibly wrong here, just a bit simple and watery on the finish. Dark fruit and licorice.

Still a baby, strong cherry and cola flavors...needed an hour to calm down. Full bodied, with a long finish, it will be interesting to see where this goes.

This wine came across with bright red fruits and sweet spice. Just a touch of leather and earthiness on the finish. Very solid QPR.

worse than the bottle of 6/30/2015, The cork had runs up to the top of the bottle, so this may have gotten oxidized a bit, but really not what I was expecting from FF.

while consistent with prior notes of 12/7/2012, the acidity was more prominent on this bottle - worried that this has peaked

Wow. Fig paste and blackberry with notes of forest floor. Full bodied, yet lively, the secondary flavors include pencil shaving, tobacco and sweet spice. Glad to have more of this.

2008 Dancing Hares Vineyard

Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend more

1/11/2016 - danielbleier Likes this wine: 94 points

Very much a new world wine, and a lovely example of fruit forward but balanced wine. Blueberry, blackberry, pine ,and solid minerality for a backbone. Lush, full bodied, this is quite decadent. Feels like it will survive quite a while, but why wait?

Really nice balance between new and old world style. Old world in that the flavors are more middle and bass tones, plum and strawberry mixed with grilled herb and licorice. New world in that this is a powerful broad wines with a huge presence. Really enjoyed this.

feels like a syrah from a cooler vintage, with plum and smoke being the primary aromas...when tasted, there is a subtle lift and balance to this wine...it is in no way a powerhouse.

Consistent with prior notes, but I waver on whether this wine is a touch overdone. Good, but deserving of a 90 rating? Depends on my mood.
