Got better with time but past its prime.

    8/14/17, 7:54 PM - I've had 15 bottles of the 94 as recently as last week. This is subjective for sure, but I think its best days are to come and has a long life ahead. I had a 1954 not to long ago that was amazing.

2007 Château de Beaucastel Côtes du Rhône Coudoulet de Beaucastel Red Rhone Blend

Love this wine. Very dark ruby, nearly opaque. Nose of garrigue with a floral side (I'm guessing that's the mourvedre), licorice, and ripe fruit. In the mouth it's got a lot of body, tons of rhone character, and a lot of tannin. I sense a little heat on it too. This wine would be well served with a few years rest, but it's pretty damn delicious right now.

2003 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino Tenuta Nuova Sangiovese

Wine was nothing amazing. I somewhat enjoyed with dinner at Renzo's (Boca Raton, Fl. decent restaurant). Nose was barely there, Wine was tannic, we basically popped and poured. It complimented the Italian meal. But I don't think I would buy this vintage again. I had the 01, and it was better, but not by much.
