  • Funky, sweaty, cumin.
    Palate was the richest and most intense, both in flavor and texture. Better than Martini but nowhere close to Inglenook.

  • I don't know why I bought this, but I'm not unhappy with it at all. Cork was soaked. Lots of sediment. Deeply bricked. Opened to a wonderfully nose of fruit and cedar. Really gorgeous nose, actually. The tannins are almost utterly resolved, very fine. But what keeps this wine alive is the acidity framing the fruit and secondary flavors, a sunny brightness that shines some nice, late-afternoon light on the palate. It's a fading wine=--pretty far gone perhaps, with its major flaw being just a hint of tomato in the mouth--but it's sliding into oblivion with some grace and self-respect and I'm happy to be here, helping it along.

  • This was the oldest bottle of wine I have drank. Purchased from Benchmarkwine.com The cork was still good and in place, a nice sign that there could be life. Nose at first was of an old tobacco box. In the first minute with a little wrist work, the nose open up to a dark berry and plum/prune nose with a hint of cinnamon. The color was purple, with a light brown rim on the outside of the glass. This was a very interesting bottle of wine, not dead but I am glad I drank it. Served without food, with Ahman and Steve.
