Always treat yourself to a good birthday wine from your rack!
A huge nose of raisin and prune, as to be expected with both an aged wine, and one of this method.
Huge body, with hints of mint, touches of older, dried herbs. The fruit in this is dark cherry, roast peach, olive oil.
Totally worth aging these. Yum!
Light, gritty tannin all the way through, with the perfect pitch of acidity to counteract the fruit. — 5 days ago
BlackBerry, plum on the nose, very pleasant smell. I’m would say it’s more medium than full body even though the waiter said it was a full body (he brought it over and said he drink it himself). It’s a very good wine. — 8 hours ago
I love this one! Raisins, cherry and a slight touch of pencil lead. The palate is exquisite. Some structure with an acid backbone that gives this palate a frame, some soft touches and roundness, raisins coming back here to add a sugary, sweet touch to a rather dry wine, no real tannins to speak of, and an everlasting finish with raisins and cherry. It shows very little complexity at first and then you understand how many layers there are. This is real good stuff — 8 days ago
This vintage seems particularly vibrant and electric right now. Tart pear, white peach, lemon curd, honeydew melon and crushed rocks overlaying a texture that is both delicate and saturating on the palate. Lots of savory spice and almond character on the long finish. Highly recommended. — 14 days ago
Medium Garnet with aromas of jammy dried fruits and sweet spice. On the palate dried cherry, blackberry jam and licorice flavors. Full body, medium acidity and soft tannins, well balanced, long finish ending with pepper spice and warming alcohol. Drinks well now, recommend not to age further. Tasting Sample. — 9 days ago
Raisins, graphite, pencil lead, cherry, a very inviting nose. The palate is wonderful! Superb balance with a strong acid backbone, a very nice fruit (cherry) and raisins touches too. A very suave and soft touch on the sides. As long as wide, this wine is showing nice levels of complexity. Gentle tannins and an expending finish with raisins and cherry. The finish is wider than the palate, what a ride! 3rd encounter and again blown away. Levels!

Beautiful red and black fruit flavors. Not as sweet as I expected. Big hint of raisins on the finish. Very refreshing, especially on a hot day. Good way to end a meal. — 7 hours ago
