  • Very nice fruit. Very smooth and drinkable. Paired with roasted duck breast and wild rice--fantastic!

  • This wine is still tight and seems rather young. But there is hope. Darker color than a previous bottle from a few years ago. The wine started out rather tart, acidic, leafy with muted aromatics...typical of many '96s. With air, things began to change. Aromas of forest floor, specifically rotting leafs, began to emerge along with leather, pine needles, a little cherry and baking spices. The structure remains dominant, something I don't mind. The tannins are grippy but not abrasive with a prominent streak of acidity. Jason thinks it has some Barolo like qualities and I think that's an appropriate comparison given the prominent structure and fruit profile (minus the rose fragrances). A very singular wine and something I look forward to tasting as it matures. My guess is this wine will continue to evolve for another 10 yrs at least.

  • Bottle not stored correctly all of its life, but the wine was of amber color and had a light dried cherry flavor.
