    March 8, 2019 - Well, this is the last of a 6-pack of 3/ea. '06 and '08, and man, they've been fantastic and I've long wished I'd have bought more than I did. For shits and giggles I just checked wine searcher and they're going for $130/ea. right now and I only paid $15!!! Crazy.

    Anyway, this one's a transparent garnet in the glass with bricking edges. It actually smelled like a smoky turd on the pop, but fortunately evolved nicely with a bit of airtime into dark red fruits, dill, lemon, cedar, fennel, dry spice drawer, and just a light earthy funk like damp soil on the farm. I enjoy the dill component on this. Medium body and finish, medium (+) acid, and flavors of cherry, raspberry, lemon, orange peel, cola, leather, dried spices, and a touch of mineral. I'm sorry to see these go, but certainly enjoyed the journey.
