A 2007 that is absolutely singing! Blackberry, cherry, and vanilla aromas with a hint of rosemary. Tannins are perfectly integrated. Gorgeous!

Found buried in the cellar. Ripe blueberry, vanilla. Dropping my daughter back at Cleveland State for swim practice and realized she doesn’t have a corkscrew. Only a hammer and a screw. Where there is a will there is a way. Add corkscrew to the shopping list. Cork came out intact and in perfect condition.😊

Fine grained tannins, integrated oak and black fruit. Really good. Probably at peak, and will home for a couple more years.

Always good, not gaining anything with age but not losing anything either

Superb. Powerful nose of cassis on a (finally, as these '07s turn) smooth and velvety frame of tobacco, black fruit and licorice. Every time I drink these beautys I wonder how I can justify paying 3x for the Pritchard Hills....

One of my favorite wines 6 years ago, wasn't sure if I'd still be find it interesting, but it's showing great structure and potential over the next 5-10 years. Alcohol is a little high.

Drinking really well at this point, and deftly bridges old school Napa with the new.
