  • Both bottles that I bought from Prince of Wine were corked. Bummer.

  • This wine was opened about an hour before drinking. The wine was showing a lot of secondary flavors of graphite, earth and mushrooms while the fruit was there but a bit muted. Don't think there is any rush too drink these.

  • Poured two large glasses and let them sit for 1.5 hours before dinner. Unimpressive at first, but by the end of the meal (Kimchi burger recipe from WS), the wine opened up with good dark fruits. Finished the wine on the couch with chocolate covered raisins. Very enjoyable CDP. I have one bottle left that we will probably drink within a year but will pour into the decanter for 1 to 2 hours. No need to wait on this wine anymore.

  • Last tasted 9 months ago. The tannins seem more resolved and not quite as intense as in prior tastings. Aromas and flavors of raspberry, blackberry, sweet tobacco, hints of licorice, herbs, spice and cigar box. As before, big, rich and full bodied. Good structure. A long and almost jammy finish. Paired well with a locally (AZ) grown organic chicken. Drinking nice now; recommend decanting.

  • Open for business and a great complement to full flavored and spicy food. The syrah component adds some peppery notes to a modern, fruit filled, palate. Some spice and earth, better with food than alone to my palate as it is not especially interesting. But well made and in excellent balance. Unlikely to improve but should hold well for a year or two at least.
