Wow! 2007 was a great vintage and 10 years on, it still shows brilliantly. Wet stone, raspberry/cherry and a faint cedar note on the nose. Still tannic and grippy, with spicy notes and a wonderful dried cranberry and ripe raspberry flavor that fades into a hint pf white pepper and plum. — 5 days ago
I think this 2011 vintage Syrah-Grenache (60/40) blend is still a ways from maturing. The Granache is still totally dominating the initial and mid palette, with the Sryah not poking out until I swallow. Ripe, bright red fruit, and a hint of white pepper make for a pleasant sip. Supple tannins grip the mouth, and sweetly let go... — 3 months ago
Amazing to taste this after about 7 years in the cellar... it tastes young still! Let this prove that WA cab, at least this one, can easily age 10+ years (i am going to save my other bottle another 4-5 years). Intense red stone fruit and mouth gripping tannins, tobacco and cola notes dominate tail end of the sip. Pleasant minerality and earthiness on the nose. Yum!! — 12 days ago
