Great example of wine making style and focus can supercede to vintage. Smokey nose of cherry, dark fruit, of course smoke on the palate. Very Burgundian in texture. Pretty and bright at times. Medium finish.
35th Anniversary Party Cellar Tasting; 6/16/2012-6/17/2012 (Rich & Dana's): If this is an off vintage, I hope to someday taste a great one. Garnet color with a vibrant core. Opens with terrific meaty red and black currant aromas, along with white pepper and spice, and a wild, animalistic overtone. Well-balanced, with red currant, berry and black fruit flavors; also spice and roasted game too. Lengthy finish domianted by red fruit and game notes.
