I’m really digging this wine. Not fruit forward certainly, but balanced and nuanced. Love it. It just has more complexity than much higher priced wines. Not for fruit bomb lovers, but I There is fruit still.

This was MUCH better than the 09 Merlot for my palate. This was big, but had solid balance and some complexity. Excellent.

This is one sophisticated CdR IMO. Earthy and minerals. Like a CdR and cru Beaujolais. Dry, slightly tannic. My kind of wine. Love the style. Less of a robert Parker wine.

This bottle was not overtly corked like the last one which tasted like nail polish and went down the drain. This bottle was some where imbetween, yet drinkable. It tastes like a classy pinot that unfortunately still had a bit of volatile acidity going on. It was drinkable and somewhat pleasant(mid-80s) but was disappointing because if it was in pristine shape, it would have been a 90+ wine based on its elegance and class. Too bad. As it was, tastes 2/3rds like a classy pinot and 1/3 like a really abrasive cheap wine. 88 based on average of mid80s and 90+ that it probably would be in decent shape. Almost a victory after prior bottle disaster. One more bottle left to see if I get lucky. Cork was in slightly better shape than the last one. Broke, but didn't disintegrate.

Classy elegant wine. Shows a bit too much heat for a pinot, but Classic Russian river pinot wit elegance, fruit, and some spicy sandalwood notes.

I'm really surprised Last Bottle would sell this wine. This seems to have serious VA and is clearly moderately flawed. Cork shredded too. Nose with hint vinegar. Elegant palate, but too flawed to appreciate.

This is a beautiful Beaujolais. Bright red fruit, nice structure, and some earthy elements.

Getting better with age. Nicely getting more elegant and classic.

I'm a big fan. Structured, classical, slightly modern merlot. Truchard is underrated.

A little oaky. Nice acid helps save it, but not an ager.

Solid wine. Bright berries. Some minerality. Not super complex, but nicely made. Drink soon.

Nice wine, but not overly complex. Not sure it has more potential. 89-90.

Always a great value. Not amazing like in its youth, but quite good. Balanced Syrah and cab.

One of the better balanced wines from Cameron Hughes I've had in a while. Not the most complex, but well balanced and some interest. 89-90.

I'm a fan of this balanced style. I wish all Cali producers had a bit more acid and balance.

Very nice wine. Balance of fruit and a bit of chalkiness. This is a very balanced wine. Not sure what time will bring.

Needed a little air and not quite as impressive as before. Still several years left in it though. Earthy and medium bodied. I like the style, but not quite as good as a few years back. 90-91.

This wine is remarkably good. Tastes very expensive. Extracted, dry, minerally, and flat out brilliant. 93-94.

Becoming overripe and not very interesting. Seemed to have potential, but going the wrong way.

Nice cleansing acidity, but drink up. These don't get better with age in my opinion. 88-89

I'm a fan. This is 89-90 for me, but seems to get oxidized by day 2. Restrained and some minerally notes to go with bright berry fruit.

CA chard just doesn't age that well. Even non-malo often.

This is a really well-made wine. Balanced high end merlot that reminds one of the high-end St. Francis single vineyard bottlings.
