Agreed that the fruit is in the background now. Still a good wine, very well balanced. I would say the bouquet is better than the initial frontal palette.

This is a classic Shiraz. For me, the bouquet is the most interesting, it has a lilac type of floral smell. Although tannic, surprisingly not earthy at all. Firm midpalette and a long finish.
Tasted this with rack of lamb first day, and filet mignon second day. Although it's a strong and bold wine, it's not edgy at all.

Nice bouquet of berries, cinnamon, and game. Slightly tart to begin but smooth transition to mid-palette, elegant and powerful finish. Could use another 3-5 years in the cellar, but drinkable now.

2008 Paul Pernot et ses Fils Bourgogne Blanc, Fragrant notes of honey, lemon, pear with a firm midpalette, and very nice and long finish with a citrus and mineral aftertaste. For under 20 USD, not bad at all! :)

This is an interesting bottle. It has some earthy and black fruit on the nose. Lots of tannins yet after decanting, it softens a bit. I tasted this wine from one hour decanting to up to eight hours. It didn't spoil. Very smooth and tannic at the same time at midpalate, almost ironic. But overall, very impressive. Tasted with pizza the first night, second day lunch with fish- surprisingly it paired ok.

Attractive aroma of peach, pear, cinnamon, and slightly tart initial taste, but smooth mid-palette, long finish of at least one minute. Honey-flavored, but not overwhelming in anyway. Truly elegant Sauterne!

Very interesting wine. Unfortunately drank this when it's over its peak. But still notes of cedar, black fruit, chocolate, meat...

Fantastic winery, try their other wines!

Surprisingly beautiful and smooth after 3 hrs of decanting. Tasted again after 15 hrs of decanting, and last tasting was a full 24 hrs after the bottle was opened. Full of black berries, fruit, mineral. Floral fragrant on the nose, midpalette a little thin, smooth finish. Overall, for the price, this is one of the best value Bordeaux around. Recommend for immediate drinking if you have the time to decant it for at least 3 hrs first. Otherwise, put away and enjoy in 5-10 years.

I was surprised how long it took to open up (45min- 1hr), given it seems to be just a simple Vino Nobile. Hints of cinamon, vanilla, berries, and spices... Not the most exciting Tuscan red from this vintage.
