Wow this was good. Have to enjoy whole cluster though...shows that profile with power. Nothing green, but stemmy and crunchy. Cranberry, black cherry and plenty of underripe rhubarb. The palate had strong acidity with plenty of flavor. Green pepper (but not off putting), and blackberry tart. Very good.

2009. Just beautiful but can go further in the cellar. Deep, dark fruit. Long silky finish. Tannins so well integrated.

2009. A very expressive nose. Chocolate, wet grass and moss, raisins and cherries. In the mouth it is immediately sharp but quickly settles into itself. A beauty. A nice blend of sweet and dark fruit with a lingering finish. I think this can even go a few more years but it's great now. Happy Friday! 🌲

She’s alive! Not in your face any longer and pretty well balanced. Definitely not tired.

More complex than 2014 and 2015. Not nearly as good as DeMar’s 2007 Best Ever Vintage.
