Was frankly stunned by the elegance and freshness here, particularly given my own review of the ‘07 earlier this year, which was not nearly so giving. Vintage (and bottle) variation are real. In any case this was really beautiful and walked that delicate balance between refined grace and animal / rustic notes that I love, with firm but smooth tannins — 12 days ago
Pretty complex - as you’d expect with a 5-varietal blend. Just opened it - a little tight still. But I think it will be very good in an hour. — 2 days ago
Excellent pair with smoked turkey, and other fatty substances, such as nuts and coconuts. Very subtle in its compliments — 16 days ago
Always a good purchase.
Prune juice nose with a bit of pomegranate mixed in,
Medium bodied, with lovely baked pie layers, fresh pie dough, currant filing, hint of lemon zest, with just enough popsicle stick tannin to carry this on.
Always a great purchase. — 13 days ago
