This needs an hour to open up. Balanced and integrated. Drinking well. Not a lot of extra time in this.

This needed an hour or more in the decanter to open up. It is still young with plenty of fruit and tannins. This was an early open to see how it progressing. It has years left to continue to develop

Very nice after you let it open up for 30-60 minutes. The first sip was a bit harsh and raised concerns we had let it sit too long. But it opened nicely. It has a mature, golden color and has multiple layers to it with a medium long finish. It won't get better. If you have one, enjoy it.

This wine is showing well and has more potential. Give it some more time. The fruit is still strong, tannins are silky, and still developing.

Great balance of tannins and red fruits. The alcohol is high and can bite some. Still drinks very well and goes with everything.

Smooth. Balanced. Medium high tannins still - but fine tannins. Still has good fruit. This won't get better with more time. Drink up.

Mature but not over the hill. This is at its prime but not a lot of fruit left. Drink this in the next few months. Balanced, fine tannins. Very nice after an hour.

Jammier than usual. Still, it is what I expected and it is a good Zinfandel.

Give this time to open. A deep garnet color, clear. There remains a lot of dark fruit flavor and high, fine tannins. This wine has several years left on it. Drinking well with even a bit more potential

Beautiful right now. Plenty of fruit left. It is peak now and should be good for another 12-24 months.

This needs time, at least on hour and preferably two, to fully open up. It is obviously mature with more cooked cherries than fresh cherries. Drink this soon.

Drier than your normal Rose wine. Good structure, light fruit flavor, light on tannins.

Drink now. This has reached that honeyed stage - fruit and white flower flavors, honeyed tones, long after taste. It won't be much better from here.

Really improves after a few hours - or overnight with an air pump. Recommend you take your time. It pays off.

The wine is fully integrated. It has a burgundy color around the rim indicating its age. It still has plenty of fruit - dark cherry in particular. The tannins are medium high, fine in nature, and smooth. There is some life left in this but it is drinking well now.

Overly fruit forward with a slight after taste. Smoke related??
