Pnp into a decanter. Very smooth, no hint of the 15.3% abv lurking below.

My prior review was right - an extra 2 years have done WONDERS for this wine. God, you gotta love that about wine right? Vodka now is vodka 2 years from now, but not wine. This is much more refined - great notes of cherry and cola and a little floral. This will definitely go to 2025 but drinking wonderfully now.

Not past its prime. Pop and pour was fantastic. Another half an hour was even better.

This is HUGE. Needed some time upon opening. I have never had such a monster Tempranillo.

Not bad - not had many zin roses. This is darker than most given the fruit. Has a hard candy flavor.

A tad early for this one - started off hot and flat. An hour later, back to the old DuMol magic.

I get the dark fruit (black currant) and herbal notes, but not the gamey meat others have noted. Agree that it's time to drink up.

The drinking window here is WAY off. This ready now and it is frankly really, really good. Syrah leads the way but it balances it's heft with some finesse

Decent - decanted an hour - but in my opinion lackluster. Good fruit but a bit tepid and flat.

The bottle I opened is just savagely dark and tannic. Let sit 2 days in the wine cellar - same. Maybe my palate is off but this is still to rough to drink.

Drink it up. Bought a lot at the BD fire sale. It’s good but getting close to the edge.
