What a difference a year makes, the ‘11 I tried was mediocre, the ‘12 I tasted was much better. Dark Ruby with aromas of dark fruit, herb and floral notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and cherry with hints of eucalyptus, leather and vanilla. Fine firm tannins, a bit chewy, medium+ finish ending with rich fruit and mineral notes. — 23 days ago
Sage, leaves of grass, fresh river water. Lovely, piney bouquet.
Mmmmmm love this. Love the bubbles and zippy quality. Light grapefruit. Some of that herbaceousness, but well balanced with cloves and just a breezy wind, really.

Blackberry, black cherry, black licorice, seem to be the fruit notes here in order from greatest to least. But, I'd never guess that this one was 8 years post-vintage as it really had a nice sweet toasted oak and vanilla character on the nose, entry, and finish. I was drinking this with some pepper jack cheese and it's amazing how much pepper and spice seemed to come out of this wine. After eating some brie, it was much more subdued. A very rounded, full bodied wine and didn't even take a lot of coaxing to get it going so I think these are probably close to being right in the wheelhouse for a pop and pour. With proper cellaring, this one still has 10 years or so left in it. Enjoyed on our last night at the beach. — 14 days ago
