  • Muted nose. Balanced, but not outstanding. Paled in comparison to Williams Selyem Rochioli 2007 last night. Not even close

  • Wonderful nose with forest notes and a nice blend of cranberry with other red fruits. However the nose was the best part as the flavor profile was lacking and didn't really come through. This also finished with a bit more alcohol than I'd care for.

  • Writing now after five hours in the decanter. Significantly better with some air. The nose remains a bit reticent -- hints of cranberry, orange peel, blueberry, baking spice and menthol. Palate unfolds with cranberry, tart cherry and citrus -- leading to a pleasingly spicy attack and finish. Well balanced -- nicely tart with a bit of tannic structure -- and more integrated than an bottle of nine months ago. All that said, I find this wine to be a bit uninspiring. Well made, but not profound and not worth the tariff.

  • Rhys Tasting With The Gang--Part 2 (My Place): Andrew opened this as his backup wine, so it didn't see the air that the rest of the wines at dinner received. Didn't matter much as this was firing really well. Has a beautiful blue fruit quality to it, reminding me a lot of Copain Kiser. Dusty, with a rock dust note, just a great aromatic. Juicy and fresh. Of note, we also did this wine at the last Rhys dinner from Oct 2014, when it showed great there, too.

  • Getting into sort of an in-between stage here. Smells at first like mostly stems. On the palate the fruit covers them up, but the fruit flavors are starting to age into a more autumnal cast than the vibrant, zingy fruit these tend to have on release. In mouthfeel, though, it is still glossy and fleshy.
