Tannins have melted away. Beginning its drinkable phase. Still has time left though.

What Zorg said. Mature flavors but fruit is gone. Drink now.

Can't figure Auteur out. They make nicely balanced, not over-oaked, chards, but their pinots are un-balanced, over-ripe and flabby.

I noticed the petrol component as well. Never experienced that outside of a mature German Riesling. Not dominant but present. Otherwise a very good chard as I would expect from Rhys. Mineral and green apple, nice acidity.

I should have listened to what JohnFalstaff said. Classic Barolo but needs much more time.

Dark rose color on a white wine. The opposite of a fruit bomb: a mineral bomb.

Decanted for 5 hours. Very California cab based blend. Fruit forward, ripe tannins. High alcohol which only showed with food, alone, surprisingly, it was not heavy but very light on its feet. Definitely do not consume with food.

Red fruits and some oak and spice. Beginning to hit its stride.

Light in color, medium body, nice minerality framing some good fruit with a touch of oak and no buttery malo-lactic flavors. Excellent with food.

Full bodied with aromas and flavor of apples. Good acidity and some nuttiness. Some alcohol on the finish. Actually performs better at cellar temp than cold.

Typical Regusci cab. Nice berry (currant) flavors with tobacco and lead pencil. A bit astringent on the finish. Probably too young.

Light ruby color. Elegant and light with earthy and berry notes. Drinking quite nicely for a forgotten Cotes de Nuits Villages that is 9 years old.

I don't know if I got a bad bottle or if this is in a dumb phase but it was nothing but pure alcohol, no tannins, no acid, no fruit, no oak, just alcohol burn.

Lovely mature Bordeaux. Aromas of barnyard and herbs open to black currant in the mouth with a decent length finish. Demands food.

Double decanted 4 hours prior to consumption. Tart raspberry and cranberry with earth notes. Great match to traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

Just picked up my latest allocation and thought I would open this up. Roses, cherries and other red fruits. As elegant a wine as you can get from a ripe year.

Fruit forward. Definitely modern styled. Hides its alcohol well.

From the hot 2003 summer. Overly ripe and hot on the palate.

Still loaded with fruit, mostly cherries with good acidity and earthiness. Could still keep going. My first Burt Williams wine, hopefully not my last. Consumed from magnum.

Fruit-forward Cal pinot. Easy to drink now with red raspberry and spice dominating. Not much in the way of structure for the long haul. I also don't get the acidity that some have commented on. Perhaps it is because I enjoy a higher acidity level in wine than others might.

Full bodied white with aromas of lychee and apricot. Good minerality with low to moderate acidity.

Doing very nicely. Aromas of tobacco and cassis opening up to blackberry. Good minerality. Long finish. Needs more time. Glad I have more.

Like all other Scholium red wines it is big in every way but balanced between fruit, tannin, and acid. However, unlike all other Scholium red wines, it is accessible early. Dark red color with aromas and flavors of blackberries and plums.

Blueberry, plums and herbs. Nice finish. Very Priorat like. I never knew a carignan could be this tasty.

Deep red veering toward purple. Blue and black fruits with minimal tannins. Some acidity but definitely on the fat side. Easy quaffer that effectively masks its 16% alcohol. Drink now.

Lovely, elegant California Meritage. Cherry, currant, and tobacco, good acidity, medium-long finish.

Definitely an odd duck. No noticable tannins but high acidity. My guess is it was over-ripe and flabby and they decided to acidify but overdid it.

Nice aromas of cherries and spice. Earth and oak add to the flavors. Good acidity. A nice food friendly pinot noir.

Very nice pinot. Typical Anderson Valley profile. Showed best on day 2.

Still very young and tannic. Opened up a little to reveal some blueberry and licorice.

Decanted for 24 hours. Deep purple with purple legs. A lot of change over 24 hours from blackberry to cherry liquor to leather. Tannins still quite fierce after 24 hours with aromas of leather and tar with flavors of cherry and chocolate. Will taste again in 5 years.

Medium red in color with floral and cherry aromas. Medium body with tart cherry and red raspberry. Lovely wine.

Brick red with red fruit, flowers and spice aromas. Gripping acidity and subtle oak. Should do well with food.
