2011. Starting to show its age but still plenty of tasty wine here. Missing some of the zip it shows when younger, but that’s made up for by the subtle notes of honey and ripe pineapple. Acid still refreshing. Five years ago it was $17.99. 13.5% abv — 4 days ago
This is a model of restraint and balance. Nice notes of cinnamon and caramel on the nose. The palate is smooth and completely linear. Tannins are still prominent, but tucked in nicely. Finishes moderately sweet, with hints of cherries and barrel toast.
A superb example gifted to us by @David L. Thank you so much my great friend 😍 — 10 days ago
