Still holding up wonderfully, rich aroma, tobacco, blackberry and tobacco flavors. Very soft tannin filled the mouth, clean finish.

Very dark and rich, light to the nose, nice fruit and acidity. Worked well with homemade pesto pizza.

I was very suprised that this was still so good. The color was deep and dark, the nose was a bit dirt and spice, but clearly softened over time. Very clean in the mouth. Bit of leather, with a hint of clove, that was actually pleasant. Clean finish. This is why I love this wine year after year. Sub 90 only because it's lost a bit of it's edge over time.

Very soft on the pallet, finish was a bit too light. The nose got better after a few minutes in the glass. It was a bit cool from the cellar at first. Very balanced, but won't get better.

Ok for a daily drinker. I kept getting a hint of dark dried cherries, but then it would go away. Aroma was very light.

I was suprised that there was so much left to this bottle. Tanniins a nice shadow of what they were, but still there, raspberry, bit of leather. Overall a nice suprise.

Slightly hot on the nose, but not in the mouth. Velvety tannins. So soft and rich. Dark dried cherry and a hint of cinnamon. Overall wonderful wine with dinner.

Spicy, blackberries and nice finish. I'll try another one in a few months. I want it to settle a bit more

The wine was ok, but not great. Seemed a bit flat. Drank it with pizza I had made and it paired well enough with it.

Found this wine in the cellar and have no idea when we got it. Well past prime. Surpisingly it still had a good nose though.

Wine was a bit hot, but that burned off in the glass. Very peppery for pinot. Reminded me of a Russian River zin in that aspect. Paired beautifully with rustic stew and risotto.

Beautuful port. Tastes of fig, plums and a bit or raisen. The finish lingered, but without being sticky. Just a hint of tannens remaining.

Suprised it had held up so long. Dusty nose, soft oak, still a hint of dark jam. A bit past prime.

Nose was ok, but faint and light. Tasted too much like grapefruit, sour and strong.
