Definitely the best bottle of this we have had - and unfortunately our last! No decant, but let this “slow ox” for several hours. Fun wine to cap off the week of our son’s first birthday. Dusty rose and some lovely earthy red fruit on the nose - almost like cherries or strawberries growing in a mushroom patch. Exquisite mouthfeel - hits every part of the mouth, perfect acid, great length, exceptionally seamless. Really one of the best wines I’ve had, ever. Paired with a simple roast chicken with mushrooms cooked in the chicken drippings. — 14 days ago
Very pretty and elegant. Cherry, oak, herbs , hint of smoke on the nose. Sweet wild strawberries on the palate. Persistent tannin that still needs time to soften up. Good stuff. — 20 days ago
What a funky closure! Plastic and a bitch to pull out of the bottle. Pleasant drink — 19 days ago
Earth, mushroom on the nose but also some fruit. Strawberry and blackberry and lots of fruit, very round finish. Really nice. Reminds me of Boudreaux but in a nice way — 21 days ago
2009. Mint, eucalyptus, cedar dust, dried raspberry, orange peel, pomegranate, and sage. Showing some brick tinges but no flavor deterioration. Cinnamon, cedar and dried maduro, savory, cranberry and dusty raspberry, roobios tea, cracked pepper, cardamom, nutmeg and a tiny bit of blistered pepper.
Intense and silky; shifting strata of immense complexity.
