We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.

Nose has dried blackberry, dried raspberry, ripe blackberry, ripe black cherry, dry oak plank, violets, old roses, medium-roast coffee beans and old milk chocolate bar.

Palate has ripe black cherry, ripe red currant, dried apricot, dried raspberry, ripe blackberry, moist soil, juiced peach, still chewy tannins with coffee and semi-sweet chocolate on the medium-long finish.

Decanted 2+ hours, pop & short decant for sediment on future bottles.

This bottle is in a great spot this evening, still many enjoyable years ahead. Future bottles may be 2023+ in proper storage, and yeah we have more. 😁

Deep Ruby, complex fruit aromas, spice and oak. On the palate ripe fresh Berry fruits, powerful yet elegant, with cinnamon spice & smoky notes on full, tight tannins. Long finish, lively acidity, nice mouthfeel, ending with vanilla and earthy mineral tones, a joy to Sip!! Tasting Sample.

Big and juicy. Robert Parker wine. Not my style.

Serious tannin - almost too harsh. Beyond that, great balance of old world leathery/earthy components and new world ripe black fruit. Not terribly interesting, but well-structured.

Well crafted wine loaded with grilled spice, baked red and black cherry notes and oak. You can feel the heat these vines must have suffered thru with med acid and high alcohol.

Nice fatty steak wine but not enough to wax poetic.
