    November 26, 2013 - wow, saw ST notes that his was past its prime. Beautiful wine. I dont normally comment on flavors, but chocolate is exactly what this is. I recall this was WS Wine of the year in either 2003/04. Great wine

    February 25, 2012 - 4th Saturday Group brown bagger (Rich & Dana's): Aromas of dark fruit and chocolate. Palate follows the nose, with nice acidity and a soft finish.

    March 18, 2011 - The wine hasn't changed much from bottle opened last July. Still very dark red color. Plenty of dark cherry in the nose, medium weight on palette, plenty of concentrated fruit, nice balanced wine. Finish was short medium length. Enjoyable wine for sure.

    July 31, 2010 - Although CT & Parker say this wine is past its drinking window we found it to be a very enjoyable wine. It had a nice cherry fruit bouquet, very smooth tannins with a high concentration of dark cherry fruit. It was well balanced and the finish was a nice short to medium finish. Not the best year from our Paloma collection but still a good quality wine. We buy them every year and are rarely disappointed. Served it with a nice roasted chicken.

    November 22, 2009 - Nice glass of wine....this was the first $50+ bottle of wine I purchased back in 2003 before I could afford things like this. Cellared for 6 years and enjoyed on a whim last night.
