Red and dark fruits and earth on the nose and pallet. This is starting to round out very nicely, and will improve with age. Drank some of it on day two and it was definitely better. Decant the next bottle.

A little light and non distinct. Hoping that time in the cellar makes this more complex.

I agree that this needs air to round out. I wasn’t particularly impressed even after the second day. It’s OK but nothing to write home about.

Enjoyable but needed at least 15 to 30 minutes of air to settle out.

Very disappointed with this bottle. I had very high expectations as it had received a 94 from Spectator. The wine was austere, had poor balance and was barely drinkable. Hoping this was just a bad bottle as I have 2 more.

Red fruit and earth on the nose and palette. A little muted when opened. Drank the second half of the bottle the next day and the wine was much better, much more complex.

Earth, black cherry and a hint of vanilla. I enjoyed drinking this bottle very much and look forward to aging the rest in my cellar as it show great potential.

Cherry, strawberry and earth on the nose. Cherry and spice on the palette. This definitely needs more cellar time, but I am expecting great things from this wine.

Nothing to really note, probably past it’s prime. Drink ‘em if you have ‘em.

Slight cranberry on the nose and palette. Not really any earth to speak of. Was a decent bottle, but nothing to write home about. I like this more when it is younger.

Dark cherry or raspberry on the nose. Earth and dark fruit on the palette. Big and bold requiring more time in the cellar. Previous note states above lake Hennessy, could be from Pritchard Hill.

Flavors and nose are somewhat muted, and not as pronounced as when it was younger.

Somewhat muted nose and flavors of apple and lemon. I expected more from this wine for the price point.

This bottle is drinking quite well. Much different from several other bottles of the 2016 that I have opened that were oxidized and undrinkable. Apparently there is a lot of bottle variation…maybe some bad corks?

Very round and drinking well for it’s age. No sharp edges left. Not sure it needs any more time.

Delightful bottle of wine. Notes of cassis, earth and oak on the nose and palette. Not showing any signs of age. Still showing amazing concentration. Very round and can go at least 5 more years. Wish I had more.

I really liked this wine when it was young, but it is definitely past it’s prime and heading downhill.

A gift. It was a decent bottle of wine, not as big as I expected. I used my Coravin and drank 1/2 the bottle and then finished it about 5 weeks later. The wine held up and was enjoyable both times.

Carmelized dark honey color with notes of pear, butterscotch and vanilla on the nose and palette. Paired wonderfully with fresh maine seared scallops with a citrus sauce from deglazing the pan with fresh squeezed orange and white wine.

Raspberry and strawberry on the nose. Raspberry, pepper and a hint of vanilla on the palette. Medium to long finish. A perfectly aged zin, wish I had more of it!
