This young pup, almost drank like a new world wine. We did decant for an hour plus , but the tannins seemed so well integrated. Medium acidity and deep opaque color with notes of clove and eucalyptus on the nose with cocoa and espresso on the palate. Will age for a long time — 12 days ago
Delicious! Explodes with bright flavor, strong body, smooth finish. Slight spice on the finish. — 6 days ago
Another Wednesday Wine Committee in the books. Great hosting by @Bill Makens . 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds, 1 dessert wine all served blind.
Last time I had this, it was about two and a half years ago and I thought it was killer...my mind hasn’t changed! I never see this stuff. Beautiful super Tuscan. Dusty and herbal up front with earthy blackberries, cherries and espresso followed by fig, black cherry compote and cedar at the finish. Still in a great drinking window. I called this late ‘00s/2010 Sonoma Cab. — 15 days ago
Listen... On open... 100% shit... Literally. Barnyard would be an understatement. This was baby diaper. After a 1 hour decant, delicious, like a fine Brunello. Awesome nose. Palate not perfect, a bit sharp of a finish but stunning in terms of development.
