Over the hill - pure vinegar! Waited too long. Or it was corked to begin with??

Ready to drink. Over powering for the ribs we smoked. Would serve with a steak or game next time. Tannic but smooth.

Absolutely amazing. Smooth and rich, like drinking velvet. Dry and tannic but amazing structure and body.

This was surprisingly good. Deep dark fruit but not overpowering "raisin" - really went great with chocolate dessert!

Still holding strong. A bit mellowed than I recall but very balanced and smooth as velvet. A nice bottle to drink on the first day of 2014.

Forgot how jammy and yummy this wine is. Such a wonderful finish and full body - violet and leather!

Drinking a bit thin. Maybe age is not helping this wine. Nice when chilled. I taste pears and a mineral.

Great color. Nose of tropical fruit and a touch of citrus. Great on the mid palate and a lot of finish.

Bought in Italy. Tight and tannic - should age well.

Very nice but a touch rougher than I remember. Light citrus and flowers but a little bite at the end.

This is concentrated mountain fruit at its best. Savored the jamminess until the last drop! Dark dark and deep wine.

This is everything I want in a wine! Bold, aggressive and complex. This is the ripped muscle man who you discover has a love of poetry. Sultry, sexy and so smooth! Loved it!!!!

Glad we finished this one off! Do not hold. Like I said last month - drink up these are a bit past prime time.

A bit of a barnyard smell and on palate. Light and easy to drink nice color but the rustic barn taste just stayed.

Better drink up - this wine is not holding up as well as the Zinfandels and Cabernets from this year. Lots of sediment - maybe thats where all the body went .....

A lot of tartarate crystals that I do not recall in others. Nice color and body but a bit off on the nose - almost a rotten fruit smell - taste was also off - may have been a bad bottle.

Still excellent but losing the bang it had when younger. Glad we opened it.

Thick and rich almost like hot chocolate in the winter. Still young even after decanting. Pride only gets better and better. Perfect for flank steak hot off the grill.

I almost feel this was just a touch "over the hill". Still excellent but missing that jubilant bounce of Turley. Drank very mellow and calm. The bouncy fruit like blackberry and boysenberry was replaced with a more mellow currant. If you have this bottle and tasted it before - time to drink up!

WOWWIE! This was so good we almost cried when the bottle was empty. Absolutely dark and rich. If you could literally put blackberry cobbler right out of the oven into a wine this was it. Jammy and a finish that you could not only taste but could actually feel. May not brush my teeth before bed to keep that finish!! One of the best wines we have had in years. i would recommend not to waste this on food. Open it with someone special and enjoy just as it is!!!
