Browning in the rim.
Warm chestnuts, sticky-date-pudding, kirsch, hoisin, cinnamon and orangepeel.
Still lovely, but on the downslope.

Continuum

Novicium Napa Valley Red Bordeaux Blend 2013

11yr Wedding Anniversary! Wine needed a decant but we didn’t have time. Dark purple color. Great nose of cedar, dark cherries, and rustic elements. Was surprised by the olives and meats on the palate. Was very CDP like. Not sure if it’s in a weird spot, an off bottle, or meant to be that type of blend. Wasn’t bad, but not my style. Medium depth and finish. — a day ago

Dividend Okanagan Falls Merlot Blend 2014

We’ve let this one age in the deal for the last 5 years. Wild blueberry jam eucalyptus and white pepper on the nose. Medium bodied with well balanced tannins and a herbaceous and stewed black fruit palate with a dry finish. — 3 hours ago

The Signature Barossa Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2004

This evolves decently over a couple of hours. Starts off discombobulated: tight, spicy, and herbal-ish, but turns into a structured, more mature powerful red despite its eighteen year old age.

At about the two hour mark the color is purple to ruby. Pronounced initial intensity with with redcurrant, blackcurrant, plus ripe red and black plum; followed by black pepper, clove, cedar, and finally meat and game blood. Dry, medium acidity, medium tannings, high alcohol, full bodied with high flavor intensity and a lengthy finish.

Very good wine.

So much rollicking and frolicking you’d think we were on a 3 day Australian walkabout! This gem was from @Eric LaMasters
