Smoke show! Great balance between primary and secondary notes. A touch warm but great complexity, character, and length. Developed well in the bottle.

The 2010 is super smooth and polished notwithstanding the game character. So much fruit still. Very classy.

So much tobacco. That crossed with seared fois gras. Just about on the right side of drinkable in terms of drinking window. Interesting stuff.

WNH event number two. Rhône varietal wines with TX BBQ...a match made in Heaven!

This was drinking so incredibly well. Complexity and depth here without the heaviness. Underripe red and black fruit with black peppercorn finish. Slight stewed red fruits too. Really loved the spice here. Bravo

Now we are talking. Dark berries, smoked meats, olive, beautiful acidity. Tanins are medium.
