    July 6, 2021 - Still fruit, acid and a bit of tannin. Some "old wine smell" as Jim would say. Not bad at 18 years for a wine designed to last 10.

    June 26, 2021 - Still very nice. By the way, I had mislabeled it. It was a Zin!

    April 5, 2020 - Tasted really nice. Still had body and flavor.
    The wine looks ruby colored. The legs are medium. There is moderate sediment in the bottle. It smells like cinnamon and fig. It tastes like raisin. The body is medium. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

    September 17, 2017 - Still in great shape! Black cherry, good acidity, a bit of earth. Excellent!

    February 4, 2017 - I found it a little porty at first, but with air, dark fruit and licorice came out. I believe it is a characteristic of the vintage - low acidity and ripe fruit, making it seem heavier than I like. I remain a fan of Rafanelli, but this particular one was not my favorite.
