Very deep, dark and intense. Thick deep fruit. Tannins pretty present. Densely packed and powerful. Not a charmer but packs a punch.

En Mag from @Joe Lucca this is still shedding tannin and bordering on overripe but it really does a good job of not falling over the precipice of this hot vintage. Not as much my style anymore but an excellent peek. Does what it does well.

25 years and still many to go! Like coffee rubbed grilled meat on the nose, tobacco, and decaying purple flowers. Fruit is all still intact and plenty of tannin structure.

Quite dense and sticky. An almost syrupy blast of dark red fruit, with underlying dark blue fruit. Intense and loaded. Not sure about this stylistically but it certainly has presence.

Incredibly pure and fresh. A bit of Brett and band aid but intense tangy fruit. Fascinating and really young.

Powerful and concentrated, black currant, cassis, graphite, licorice, tobacco, finely integrated tannins. Drinking fabulously.

Thick and still quite blocky with fine noticeable tannins and a relatively monolithic center of dark fruit. It’ll be interesting to see how this develops.

Modern style soft Merlot. Easy drinking, but lacking two essential elements: complexity and character
