Berry and rich flavors at first taste, then more leather and spice later with a nice long finish. Lingers in your palate with lovely complexity — 3 months ago
Layered flavors which emerge as you sip. Fruit (cherry, berry)at first, then tobacco, then a hint of pepper in finish. Great bouquet. Smooth. Elegant finish. Amazing mouth feel. Spectacular! — 3 years ago
Needed to aerate. Very rich, tobacco, chocolate notes. No bouquet. Was terrific with duck. Smooth, mellow, some tannin but not overwhelming — 4 years ago
Delicious. First sips more tart, lots of minerals, tannins, berry with a hint of balsamic and caramel. Really full body but not smoky or tobaccoey. Great mouth feels. Forget the meal, just drink the wine — 10 months ago
Currant and jam flavor, a little astringent. A hint of cocoa. Really nice color and very tasty — 3 years ago

Lighter red, but still has a full body. Nice bite of tannin and tartness. Hint of raspberry, chocolate. Worked really well with duck breast. Light but interesting and complex, aged well.
Had the 2011 which was a good choice — 4 years ago
Great tart taste, cherry/fruity, spicy without being peppery, light finish,
Great balance to something with spice or rich flavor — a year ago
Peach at beginning, then citrus. Full round taste—fruity but dry. Great with chicken but can do fish —can stand up to strong flavor — a year ago
A bit of sediment. That’s the only downside.
Lush. Took a bit of aeration to open up. Cherry, leather, but light texture. Tart without being bitter or edgy. — 3 years ago
