  • From memory. PnP Beautiful lush nose of black fruit and just a hint of spice. Mouth coating black berries and dried figs. Well balanced and no hint of heat. Good finish and decent qpr.

  • - Purple color and aromas of cherry and raspberry. It's somewhat balanced and has flavours of cherry with a medium body - Never really came around. Lots of blueberry.

  • Sine Qua Non Dinner (Formento's - Chicago IL): Dense black fruit with Asian five spice and black pepper. Great fruit comes across a so clean and precise, just slightly less nuanced than the best of the SQNs tasted tonight. Upside going forward. Very tasty.

  • 4yrs since my last bottle. Sometimes I think I like the Lillian wines with less age, but this vintage is really striking. Large in scale but beautifully crafted and minimal heat. Loads of concentrated dark fruit with a polished plus texture. Fantastic pepper and spice which has integrated with the large scaled fruit. Long finish. Not fatiguing at all despite the style.

  • Color: dark/deep ruby core -> fairly dense ruby/fuchsia rim. Opened and decanted for 2+ hours before tasting. Truly a reticent bouquet that required a lot of swirling and coaxing to get much; blueberries and plums with a touch of anisette. Clean, foursquare palate featuring the aforementioned fruits as well as a little chocolate. Good midpalate, acidity and a nice long finish, this wine is in serious need of some personality. Don't get me wrong, it is certainly well made and quaffable, it just needs to bring more to the plate --especially considering the price. I'd give it a 90 if it was around $35 but have to knock one off for missing that mark.
