  • Cloudy crimson. Fresh nose of cherry cola and baking spice. Medium bodied, sweet blueberries, sharp black cherries, leather, lots of dry dusty tannins, tobacco, and a long finish. Delicious. Still a lot of life left.

  • Still a nice dark red purple. Big full nose of graphite and dark fruit. Firm tannins on entry and through finish. Palate echoed the nose with a lengthy finish of sweet cassis. This has done well over the years. Actually a bit more to my liking than when young.

  • Dark rose with slight bricking. Great nose of blueberry pie, mulled spices, and tobacco. Medium bodied, leather, cedar, black cherries, muscular tannins, dust, and a long, tongue-wrapping finish. The secondary characteristics have emerged, pushing the fruit to the back. That's a good thing. Thanks Tim.

  • Dark Sonoma ruby purple in the glass with a light cling. Full nose of mostly fruit qualities -- cassis, blue-/blackberry compote -- with a vanilla oak sheen. Palate is intense and fruit-forward (as expected). Black- and blueberries, black currant jam, a hint of that Cab Sauv green, and that vanilla sheen (very subtle). Tannins well integrated at this point, giving just enough to smack your lips after the medium-long finish which continues the flavor profile started on entry. Take care of it and it could give another year, but it's a crowd pleaser right now, so drink up. You bought some later vintages, right?

  • OTBN - Still drinking very well. Decanted for an hour and a half before dinner. Great fruit and smooth tannins. Not as much velvet. smoother now.
