Light-medium red color. PNP, drank 2+ glasses over 2 hours. This was a fine bottle to finish on. Certainly in fine form with a beguiling elegance and charm. Lovely as always on the nose with cherry, forest floor, dusty berries, and allspice. The palate is graceful with lighter body, nice acid, cherry and some berry fruit, nicely spiced, ample tannin remained , earth, dusty, and a medium finish. Very good still and holding.
Nose: Nice loamy qualities showing and some earth with forest floor hints. Palate: Soft and ready to go on PnP. Black cherry, mature tannins and complex earth, sage, forest floor conclude with a medium length finish. While not quite as good as the last bottle (notes on 2/6/13) still a solid 90+ points. My last bottle and glad I drank up as this is perfect to slightly past due depending on personal perferences.
Medium red color. PNP, drank 2 glasses over 2 hours. Dried red fruits, allspice, cinnamon, earth on the nose. The palate has earth, red fruit, spice, briar and minerality with sofg tannins and a medium finish. Holding, but time to wrap these up.
Mixed Wines Offline (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Medium red color. PNP, drank 1 glass plus over an hour. Another interesting disconnect of opinions on this wine tonight. I thought it was quite pleasant, not the best bottle of this I've had by any stretch, but certainly very enjoyable. Very similar to the note on 1/27/12. I like the nose with that earthy, smoky quality, lightly floral, raspberry and strawberry, with some underbrush. The palate is on the lighter side of medium body, raspberry, cherry, spices, dusty tannins, a bit tart. Medium finish.
