  • This was showing well. Fred called it sharp, meaning it was still youthful. It’s still got five to 10 years to go. It needed air to open up. But it was also smooth as silk and elegant. I got dark red fruit on the nose and the palate, plus maybe a little forest floor. Long fisish. A pleasure to drink.

  • This turned out to be pretty interesting. I got a slight mustiness on the nose. Glenn concluded it was slightly corked. The fact that I perceived the mustiness is evidence to the contrary because I have almost no TCA perception. Whatever the flaw, we continued to drink this wine and enjoy it. It's still holding on and has several years to go.
    For me, the wine was a nice contrast. There were some bright red fruit flavors and there was also some distinctive southern Rhone=style garrigue. Also maybe some mushroominess. Good finish.Kind of a lighter style and definitely food friendly. Aging helped this wine. I look forward to drinking my other bottle.
