    February 23, 2019 - Subsequent notes on this wine from over four years ago. Deep, rich, dark garnet in color with slight clearing at the edges. Full, forward & aromatic nose of ripe fruit aromas of cherries, blackberries & plums with overtones earthy & smoky notes, some floral notes, dried herbs, minerals, spices, anise & a hint of oak/vanilla. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of balanced & smooth textured, rich, ripe fruit flavors of cherries, blackberries & blueberries with spices, cola, earthy, herbs, minerals & some toasty oak/vanilla. Smooth lingering finish. Drinks quite well at present but at 12 years of age is at or near its peak of development, so drink up!

    November 6, 2018 - Took a 1.5L to Bouchon tonight to share with friends. The well stored bottle still tasted fresh and showed plenty of fruit still. A nice beverage, held back a bit by a little extra ripeness/alcohol. Tasty nonetheless and no where near over the hill from the magnum.

    March 4, 2018 - 2007 SEA SMOKE SOUTHING STA. RITA HILLS PINOT NOIR- a gracious 14.5% abv; it had a deep dark purple colour befitting it youthfulness; the nose gave intense ripe black fruit and the taste had jammy black cherry, plum and blackberry; this and many of the other wines would have benefitted from being decanted.
