After all these years this wine is still wonderful. Very smooth tannins with layers of dried figs, licorice, black peppercorns, plums and toast. Great layers and worth the wait.

Golden semi cloudy wine that is slightly viscus. Mineral qualities, lemon grass, citrus, pears. Layers of green apples, pears, lemon curd and some oak. Very nice wine that needs a little airing to settle the acidity. Maybe we opened the bottle too soon.

Medium red color. On the nose, hints of strawberries, dust, a little petroleum, fruit compote and red licorice. Very nice lingering mouthfeel with layers of strawberries, raspberries, mint and jam. Nice structure and very expressive wine. The nose and mouthfeel became more expressive as the evening lingered. A two hour, or longer, decant would be advisable.

Decanted, but we didn't wait long to pour our glasses. Deep ruby red color with an expressive nose consisting of pencil lead, mint, loam, cherries, dried figs and toast. Wonderful tannin and acidity balance. Very nice mouthfeel and layers of ripe figs, cassis, toast, black peppercorns, blueberries and cedar. I'm glad we waited three years since the last bottle, as this was worth the wait. The last bottle in the cellar has at least another three to five years.

As an earlier taster noted, this is a cab lover's Pinot Noir. The nose is rich with red berry fruit, loam and raspberries. The mouthfeel is wonderful with long lasting layers of bing cherries, raspberries, fruit compote and mint. Wonderful wine that will keep improving over the next 3-5 years.

This wine needs time to breathe. Upon opening and decanting for an hour, it was tight and slightly tannic. After another hour it loosened up and evolved into an expressive wine displaying notes of black cherries, blueberries, loam and toast. Nice mouthfeel with a long finish that exposes layers of bing cherries, ripe figs, black peppercorns, cassis, cedar and mint.
