Very nicely balanced wine. Restrained, but delicious fruit. Nice earthy tones. Drank like a Rhone.

Sweet fruit flavors. Possibly overripe for my taste. Might go better with food/dessert.

Seems to have lost a little structure. Still delicious, but not as complete a mouthfeel as when younger.

Nice, crisp Riesling. Good acidity. Wish it had a little more sugar left in it. balance seems off.

Not a lot of flavor in this Chablis. Rather boring. Crisp, nice acidity. Nothing else.

Still holding up very nicely. Was worried it would have broken down, but it was a very nice older cab.

Earthy, full flavor and body. Not as much fruit showing through. Honestly liked it a lot less than when we tasted it at Papapietro Perry tasting room. At a minimum, it did not have the acidity or clean fruit to work well with Thanksgiving turkey.

As always, very nice, restrained Bordeaux blend. Went great with a steak cooked florentine style.

Even better than tasting in 2010. Wine had developed gorgeous slight smokiness and still rich fruit flavors. Just delicious.

Definitely past its prime. Flavor has faded. Not bad, just has fallen apart.

Very nice syrah. Nice, integrated tannins, a little smoky. Nice taste without being overly ripe. Good value.

Surprisingly nice. Wasn't sure how well it would hold up to aging, but very pleasing bouquet, delicate fruit flavors.
