Reaching into the wayback machine of my palate preferences to see if I can motivate the Caps to not suck in the playoffs with some Big F*©king Red Wine. And yeah, this wine just isn't my bag anymore, baby. But I'll take one for the team and choke it down 🤣😂
Ok, I'm being dramatic, it's not terrible, just not what I'm used to drinking anymore.
Strong blackberry, graphite, anise, oak, touch of saline, mint, not too tannic on the palate actually. Fairly smooth.

Back to a big domestic red for the Caps :) Hint of smoked meat, oak, pepper, an almost skunkiness?, root veggies, quite hot on the nose, with big rough tannins. This comes off much younger than its 6 years, curious what this does in 20 years. Interesting wine I think, but it's one of those that I much prefer the nose to the palate.

Decanted, will follow over the evening.
On open: big wine, tart but ripe, red cherry, intersting mix of orange peel, five spice, and wet fall leaves. Big tannins, astringent, some alcohol on the nose actually...will check in later
Didnt get back to this until 24 hours later...this really opened up the next day unsurprisingly. Alcohol aroma totally vanished, tannins smoothed out completely, excellent. Give it some more time, or a very long decant.

Band aids, green peppers, raspberry, tobacco, very forward tannins still, lots of grip, but so good. Couple more decades of life I'm sure.
And do or die Caps, already in the hole 1-0 #letsgocaps #rockthered #capspens #dunnvineyards #howellmountain #playoffs — 4 years ago
I know you'll win today Caps. #rockthered #letsgocaps #capspens #playoffs #burgundy #dugatpyistheshit
Really good bottle of Burg, young, powerful, black cherry, barnyard, earth, but still very big tannins...once they resolve this will be even better. — 4 years ago
After the failure of big domestic red last game, we're back to my favorite; good Burgundy :)
And this is good...I still think 07 is fairly overlooked, I've enjoyed most I've had, and prices are still rational. Somewhat.
Right up my alley here. Great nose of earth, meat, vanilla, saffron, cherry, umami soy, spices, and an interesting hint of pachouli I dont think I've ever found in a wine before...just good stuff. Pretty palate too, lingering savory finish. Smooth, medium tannins that grip, a ways to go before they fully integrate.

On pop n pour this is already really good funky Burgundy. Tight on the palate, and a youthful freshness, but has that obvious characteristic barnyard I look for. Love it already, but hoping the palate smooths a bit with a decant...will follow up
