  • 1994 Ravenswood Pickberry (63% Merlot, 21% Cab. Sauv., 16% Cab. Franc)
    bottom of cork was soft but but Rabbit did the trick
    Remarkably dark color for its age - more brick tones typical of older wine, but still dark
    Shorter teardrop legs (13.5%)
    Characteristic plummy Merlot nose
    Mellow and a bit flat on the palate initially, but opening up to plum, earth and mushroom notes
    Very smooth, but tannins still present
    Medium finish

  • Color: medium ruby -> light garnet rim. Light bouquet of berries, plum, a little ash and leather. Singed, sour cherries, a little cedar and cassis coming through before the acid and tannins take over a pretty short finish. Palate definitely showing signs of fatigue; still alive but going over the hills and far away. This didn't get better as it sat for a few hours in the decanter (checking in every half hour or so). Drink soon (like this second).

  • After a long night of higher-priced disappointments, this saved the day as WOTN. Tannic as hell, but this has a load of plum and blackberry fruit, garrigue, chocolate, lots of acid. Not ready yet but has the fruit to stand up to the tannin. Delicious.

  • Ruby red color with an alluring aroma of dark red fruit, cedar, spice and herbs. The palate is bright, fruity, and has fine length. The acidity keeps the wine fresh and inviting.
