  • After the Va Piano, this was was a much differed style. Very Bordeaux-like in that the aromatics reflected wet leaves, wet mulch, some smelly sewage. It was decanted and eventually settled down. Good complexity with dark smokey berries, some vanilla oak, red currant, cocoa, leafy tobacco, and charred earth, the blend seems to be Merlot dominated; however, there’s structure that may support another 1-2 years of enjoyment.

  • Had over a couple of nights and it opened up a bit, but was pretty much the same. New world Bordeaux-y with up front oak, but not too cloying. Nice ripe fruit to go against a steak. About right for the price, I suppose.

  • Overall still good, but not nearly as good as previous bottles. A little more muddied on the palate with hints of leather and the occasional whiff of wet dog on the nose.

  • Deep garnet red. Dark cocoa on the nose with dusty notes. Some candied fruits too. Medium tannins (5.5/10) and medium bodied. Dark cocoa, earthiness, and dark berries. Medium to medium plus finish. Drink till 2019.

  • Decanted and enjoyed over two days with food both days. Decent on the first day, but it really hit its stride on day two. Still relatively young in appearance, structure, and flavor, with an excellent mix of black and red fruits. For an 11 year old wine this has fared very well. Great QPR at under $20, as this drinks well beyond its price range. Still enough tannin and acidity to easily support another 3-5 years in he cellar. Kudos to Ritterman on this, he has more than a few bombs to his credit, but this isn't one of them!
