Very enjoyable. Bought in NH. Salem. — 2 days ago
Cherry, strawberry, and a touch of oak. Soft tannins (after decanting for around 1 hour). Allowing this young rioja a chance to breathe neutralises the acidity, leaving an easy drinking, well balanced rioja. A little black pepper in the back that closes a medium finish. Medium body — 16 days ago
Didn’t get a chance to decant this wine at first , and it had so much mineral that it was jarring ... didn’t expect that. Left it open for a while and then decanted which helped ease the tension so as to speak ! Just wasn’t as predictable as a beringer , I guess. Volcanic for sure though it did show some fruit in the end. — a month ago
When the chance came around to buy a case of this from an ex Chateau library release I jumped on it. $44 is a steal for this wine. The first smell is ‘Bordeaux’ and the first taste as well, but then the wine opens up to earthier and herbal aromas. Just a really joyful wine. 23 years old and probably should be drunk soon ... An arduous task indeed :) — 24 days ago
primary: black cherry, blackberries, black currant, dried herbs
secondary: clove, cigar box, vanilla, tobacco
tertiary: meat, leather, coffee, forest floor, mushroom
Medium tannins, because of the age they have mellowed and integrated beautifully.
Mature flavors are intense with
primary: dried cherries, black currant, dried herbs, blackberries
secondary: vanilla, clove, tobacco
tertiary: cured meat, coffee, mushrooms, dried leaves
Found this bottle tucked away in a small liquor store and took a chance on it. Damn! What a happy find.
Drinking the 2007 in 2021 and it's good now, no further aging will improve it. The fruit flavors are still intact and in balance with the matured tertiary flavors.
Great long finish

Really nice Merlot that improves the longer it’s open - if it gets a chance! Fruity with a dry finish. Purchased from York Wines. — 15 days ago
