January 15, 2016 - Alec's Blend was one of my first wine loves as I got into it several years ago. It was always really, really big, but this '07 seems to have mellowed. I'm in aggreeance (Southern term) with Cuellarstyle on all but that my bottle seems to have medium acidity, to my taste. I might not be getting as much fruit either, and I'm certainly not getting all the smoke and leather that I used to get with Alec's blend. It seems much more balanced now, and not as much of a punch in the face. To me, that's a bit of a disappointment. To others, the more refined status of this is probably welcomed. Still a great bottle, though. Cheers!

September 17, 2015 - A great bottle, and perfectly ready to drink.
The wine looks inky colored. The legs are medium. There is heavy sediment in the bottle. It smells like strawberry, blackberry and blueberry. It tastes like strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, cranberry and raspberry. The body is medium. The wine has silky texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.
