Power pinot, with baked cherry, spice, and cranberry notes. Pure hedonism.

plenty of flavor left in this wine, but some of the energy seems to have left this wine - still gives plum and dried cherry with smoke and tobacco leaf.

To Bordeaux of the evening - remarkable for the freshness and vibrancy, plum and black currant mixed with pencil shaving and cigar box flavors

The richest of the 3 50+ year old Burgundies that kicked off the evening -this mixed plum and spiced cherry with mushroom and cedar notes. Needed a 1 hour decant to open up...believe it or not.

This label was a bit confusing, but I believe this is rating the correct wine. This had a bit more oak spice than the '62 Pommard we had alongside , but a delightful wine, still vibrant and full bodied

One of the best wines from one of the great wine night of my life. Lively and vibrant. hints of mushroom and forest floor well integrated with raspberry and cherry notes.

Big fruit profile of blackberry, boysenberry and blueberry. Orange rind on the nose and the finish. Very smooth and integrated at this point.

Dark fruit, blueberry and blackberry, that was backed by mild tannins and acidity. Paired nicely with the ribeye round top at Garrison.

Pear and apple notes, rich and sweet - for most people this would be a dessert wine.

Ripe blackberry and blueberry notes, plenty of oak and olive notes to provide a counter to the fruit. Did not feel excessive as other commented in tasting notes, perhaps time has been a friend here. I would suggest drinking in the next few years.

I am sure that this gets a few points with me with the shock value of this wine still being drinkable. A touch of sherry with mild citrus and quince.

Not as huge as you might expect, blueberry and plum mix with olive and earth tones - certainly drinking well, a small decant helped

Fantastic wine, rich and full bodied, loads of tropical fruit and wet stone...did not feel the oak at all, will try to pick up more.

More tannic and herbaceous than other Siduri bottles we have had, the was nicely balanced with bright red fruit and grilled herbs. Perhaps could have used a year to settle.

Power wine as usual, blueberry and cassis, finishes with a touch of pepper and minerality. Old world fans might find this syrup, but I find it electric and extremely enjoyable

Explosive aromas, full spice array as well as floral qualities. Flavors were slightly more basic when tasted, as red fruit backed by sweet spice dominate the palate. Still, an outstanding wine.

Not really a rose, just a slightly light bodied Pinot. Rose petal aromas, with flavors of cherry and raspberry and a slightly bracing finish to remind you of rose. A unique wine.

Remains one of our favorite wines...this mature wine has elements of earth and mushroom to add to the pure cherry and raspberry notes
