Drink this now. At (or slightly beyond) its prime. Surprisingly good. Nice balance right out of the bottle. Dark fruit, berries, spice, maybe chocolate on the nose. Tasty fruity palate (a little jammy). Long finish.
I think this bottle is singing right now. I will drink my other bottle very shortly. Beautiful concentrated wine with nice complexity. Dark red fruit with some bramble to it. A mild pepper and cream note were present. Long finish.
Completely different than last tasting but similar score. Pop and pour, very rhone-like. California spice had diminished even further, huckleberry and nutmeg on the nose. Sort of watery profile had the faint blue fruits fade quickly.
