This used to be one of my favorite wines in its youth. Total hedonism in the bottle. However, now 10 years old, it was just funky tonight. Showed a glimpse occassionally of the beautiful fruit that made it so sexy years ago, but after that, it was just in a total awkward stage. I hope at some point it comes out of it and turns into a nice aged wine, but right now, it is not good.
A wonderful wine; throwing quite a bit of sediment now. Dark, dark purple color. Great juice in which you can taste all 3 grape varieties. Different, but just as good, on the second night. This wine gives a lot back to the drinker.
Blind Night (Enotria, Scottsdale): Very dark purple. Strong VA on the nose. Over ripe fruit with a fortified or port like character with extremely high alcohol on the finish. Tastes of dusty dried black fruit. I haven't been overly impressed with the wines of Villa Creek of late.
