Delizioso. Weird, this bottle tasted better than the last. Maybe it had something to do with the pasta I had with it.

Nice balance with flavors of blackberries with a peppery finish. Tannins still a little grippy. Not much on the nose but don’t let that fool you. Still pretty good esp with spicy food. Enjoy during the Covid-19 lockdown.

Drinkable but past its prime. Drink now. Liked the Cakebread 2008 more but still reasonable value at the $20 I paid for it years ago.

Drinking okay but on the decline. Lacks body and structure, a bit more acidity than I like. Drinkable.

Surprisingly younger than I expected. Medium bodied with cherry and smokey nose. Slightly tart finish. That said, very drinkable.

Medium bodied with earthy tones. Smooth finish. Light tannins. Cherry, plum and dark fruit aromatics. Drinking well now. Drink over next few months. Ideal for Corona quarantine.

Solid wine. Aromatics of darker fruits and tobacco. Tannins have subsided but hint of earthiness and texture and tannin structure from when it was born still exists. Drinking superbly now.

Did not have time to decant. Still a little young, flavorful but a tad tight.

Great like the "All Blacks", fantastic nose, spicy, full bodied for a Pinot, full of fruit even at 9 years old. Was even better the 2nd day.
