Couldn't finish a glass. Much worse than my last bottle 2.5yrs ago. All heat and cola, with little fruit intensity.Dry bitter tannins on back end. Not flawed, but didn't age well given the size of this wine and just seemed very unbalanced. I can only hope the Ten's are better.
Sea Smoke Southing Vertical (Traci's House): Extremely dark looking like a SRH Syrah. This is a very ripe and concentrated wine, too ripe for me, as the aromas and flavors are dominated by dark plum pushing towards prune. A little cherry lingers around but it's surrounded by a heavy handed oak treatment. Medium firm tannins.
I tested my Coravin with this 2007 Sea Smoke Southing. It was first accessed in December 2013. It was drunk three times over a period of a year, including a midpoint in June 2014. In January 2015 I uncorked the bottle and drank the last glass – it tasted as fresh as the first! Coravin is the real deal!
As for the wine, it was okay but muted - how did Sea Smoke mess up the 2007 vintage?!
