  • Maybe one of the most corked bottles I've ever opened!

  • Great way to celebrate the New Year. Fruit is still quite present, holding its own vs. the oak, which I would agree with others is still a factor. Hoiwever, all in all, it's a nice balancing factor. Tannins are modest at this point, so this has become a sippin' wine as well as a wonderful meal wine. I also agree with others that this bottling has years to go.

  • Perhaps the best WOE PN we have ever had...peer-ee-owed. Some bricking on the rim, the nose is still classic WOE, and a lengthy finish. Violets all over the tongue...both crushed and otherwise...tannins gone like Hitler's Wehrmacht from Stalingrad, yielding a wonderful sippin' wine, yet it is magically holding it's own at the table.

    We have had many aged US PNs (i.e., 7-15 years), and this is quite the best we can recall...

    Amazing that I use the terms "Wehrmacht" and "magical" in the same paragraph...heh.

  • Opens up beautifully, soft and balanced. Good fruit, moderate oak, wonderful mouthfeel. Seemed to fade noticeable after a few hours, but not much in bottle by then. Will be interesting to see how much life this wine has left. I have 1 bottle remaining.

  • Tasted non-blind at home from a split. PnP and drank over 3 hours. Very bright nose of red cherries, oak, spice and a hint of smoke. On the palate, it has more red berries and is a bit dominated by the oak. My first tasting of this wine so I can't comment on how the oak compares to earlier in its life but I would say it is far from fully integrated. Very long finish with sour cherries, spice and smoke at the very end that lingers for a full minute. A bit hot on the finish but not overwhelmingly so. Seems to have plenty of potential ahead of it. Very drinkable now but I would rather wait to see if the oak settles down some.
