Tuesday, March 6, 2012 - If you have a bottle of the 2009 drink it now; it may be too late anyway. Bad nose at first but once it opened up with some agitation it has a decent nose and very mild palate. Whatever was there in other bottles a year ago is..tannins, tobacco, decent acid, terroir, all seems gone. Not much in the way of mouthfeel. Just some dried fruit like raisin and blackberry on the nose, blackberry itself in the taste, and more than a dash of black pepper in the taste remain. Drinkable, decent, but nothing special.
