Showing very well. Makes me think of Napa; I really need to make a trip again soon.
I'm not finding the buttery note I did previously, which I'm ok with. Nose of blueberry, blackberry, flowers, vanilla. In the mouth there's a baking spice edge mixed in, reminds me of a blueberry/blackberry cobbler or something...I almost get cinnamon at times.
Great with Aged Prime NY Strip steaks for Valentines Day!
There's a backbone here, and the tannins still going strong, big, smooth, but still grip...Going to have to sit on a few bottles of this, I think it could be very interesting at 10+ years old...
