  • Drinking perfectly right now. Drank with a variety of triple creme brie and brioche. Blackberry, ollalieberry, blueberry, dusty leather and redwood forest floor. Outstanding

  • Dark garnet colored, medium bodied, aromatic blackberry and black cherry fruits accented by tones of tar, smoke, earthy leather, hints of cedar and spice, (earlier reports of mocha were not apparent), on a firm lingering tongue puckering tannin finish - fruits slightly diminished from earlier tastings with seemingly increased acidity.
    *PS. A postscript on this tasting, after a couple days open in the bottle, chilled, this wine returned to its earlier elegance, structured balance and fruit, regaining my earlier rating of 89 points. (I demoted it to 88 for this initial tasting). Once again, I shouldn't P-n-P, pop and pour these complex aged wines, rather, give them respect, open them and allow them to breathe at least a couple hours before diving in!

  • Brilliant again, no sign of fading. Value for money is great. The wine is dark as night. The fruits too. Spices like clove and pepper in there. A touch of cigar. Powerful but elegant. Truly enjoyed this one. With beef tenderloin it was fantastic.

  • A nice, pleasant, easy drinking, yet sophisticated, polished and nicely integrated and balanced wine, dark garnet colored, medium bodied, aromatic blackberry and black cherry fruits accented by tones of tar, smoke, earthy leather, hints of cedar, spice and a whisper of mocha on a firm lingering tongue puckering tannin finish.

  • Medium-dark garnet color, aromas of dark fruit, leather and brush. Flavors of dark currant, blackberry, and leather with a little dusty tannin and mildly acidic, bakers chocolate finish. Nothing fading here, very nice wine, with many years ahead yet, no hurry.
