  • Well, this is the last of a 6-pack of 3/ea. '06 and '08, and man, they've been fantastic and I've long wished I'd have bought more than I did. For shits and giggles I just checked wine searcher and they're going for $130/ea. right now and I only paid $15!!! Crazy.

    Anyway, this one's a transparent garnet in the glass with bricking edges. It actually smelled like a smoky turd on the pop, but fortunately evolved nicely with a bit of airtime into dark red fruits, dill, lemon, cedar, fennel, dry spice drawer, and just a light earthy funk like damp soil on the farm. I enjoy the dill component on this. Medium body and finish, medium (+) acid, and flavors of cherry, raspberry, lemon, orange peel, cola, leather, dried spices, and a touch of mineral. I'm sorry to see these go, but certainly enjoyed the journey.

  • Tasted over three days. Aromas indicative of Baciagalupi fruit with vibrant flavors of chocolate raspberry on day one evolving to mulled red fruit compote & red hots on day three. A particularly long lingering finish throughout. However, it is nearing the end of life, but is still showing very well for now.

  • This wine is still rockin'! The spices and are really showing well. It's also developing a mossy profile almost Scotch like.

  • Similar to my '15 note. Transparent garnet color. Aromas of cherry, cranberry, cinnamon red hot candies, smoke, lemon, dried meat, and dill pickles. Medium body, medium(+) acid and finish, and flavors of cherry, black cherry, black tea, orange and lemon peel, cinnamon, and dried spices that linger. I really wish I bought more of these at the '06/'08 deal pack pricing.

  • Don't remember what the last bottle was like but this one was delicious integrated tanins, luscious fruit. Quite enjoyable
