    June 14, 2017 - This wine is in prime time. Delicious Merlot with loads of fruit and secondary flavors.

    June 10, 2017 - A ripe and thick Merlot that should be drunk now. Dark red in color, full in body, nose of prunes, graphite, and menthol. Tastes of plum, leather, raisin, and rosemary, with a soft and somewhat brief finish. 15.2% alcohol. I preferred the 2005 far more at its 10-year mark, and the raisiny profile and lack of acidity make me suspect this is on the downward slope. Make sure to give it an hour or so of air, which freshens up the wine a bit. Blend of 89% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Sauvignon.

    March 4, 2017 - Tasted completely blind. Obviously Merlot, obviously New World. Guessed 10 year-old Californian. At first, this was very Concord-grapey which didn't leave me hugely enthusiastic. But get it into the glass, and it's a different beast; ripe, plummy Merlot, a touch of clay, a bit of flowers, not particularly hot in the mouth. I liked this and it went beautifully with the pork - certainly a wine for the table.

    March 3, 2017 - Provided as comparison to the troplong mondot. Although i see the pleasure bomb here for what it is, i worry about the long term development. Explosive black plum, fig, coffee bean and blackberry preserves. Chocolate shavings and milk shake density on the palate, and layers of fruit that dont stop.

    Not really my style any longer, but i respect the wine for what it is in the contect of 2007.

    February 9, 2017 - Great final night dinner with Kale and Ranko Anderson. Second of the reds:
    Super dark ruby red. Lovely nose with some crushed dark berries, dark floral notes and very light stones. Moderate tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Tons of layers in dark berries, both black and tight blue. Great depth and power. Decanted for two hours. Drink till 2026.
