With dinner at Island Prime in San Diego celebrating our daughter's masters degree. The bottle was "double decanted" per Anthony Yount's (winemaker for Denner) suggestion. Color was a dark red-purple all the way up the glass. The nose alone was intoxicating! Luscious ripe dark fruit (currants, blackberries, Royal Anne cherries) with an overlay of baked cobbler crust. Very full mouth feel, yet it was not overpowering - very well balanced. On the palate we got more of those wonderful dark rich fruit flavors, with some dark chocolate dust. Finish was very nice. I have always liked this blend, but I think this vintage may be the best I have tasted yet. Good thing I have more!
