  • New Year's 2013. Very earthy, muted fruit, mushrooms, forest floor and truffles on the nose.

  • Half bottle. Deep, primary central color. Like a dark cherry liqueur at first, almost overripe, but this peeled back after an hour in the decanter to show less ripeness, some earth, and wintergreen elements. Very dense and compact upon first taste with a tannic bite but not particularly acidic. Over time, it began to develop some secondary aromatics, a pretty mix of red and blue fruits and a little spice. It seems pretty obvious that even out of this small format, this is nowhere near maturity, which is not to say that it does not have many enjoyable aspects now. However, I think that concentration rather than delicacy and power rather than refinement will always be its hallmarks. Certainly not a waste to try one now since the wine is very young but not as dumb as many other 2005s recently noted by others.

  • Bright cherries with a medicinal edge on the nose, bit thin and acidic on the palate.

  • Aromas of shy red Pinot fruit & a core of iron &, with time, a licorice note. This wine has real grip & is quite chalky but nicely balanced with adequate dry extract levels & underlying fruit. It just needs time for the grip to loosen & the fruit to emerge. This should be good. 375ml

  • Sweet nose. Well defined. Medium finish. Still vey young. Should wait one year to try again. Should score higher.
