July 4th Friday was a total blowout! Killer bottles one after another. Here are just a few of the bottles we all enjoyed!

I’m not a big burgundy person (probably because I haven’t focused attention there and tried reputable producers), but this was big and powerful aromatically showing wild flowers, underripe black cherries, tar and herbal spice. Not thin nor overpowering on the palate. Acidity is still fairly high. More dusty and earthy toward the finish.

PnP as a night cap. Nice tawny purple color. Bright fragrant nose. Notes of red fruit, spice, moist black soil and some sois bois. Good texture and mouth feel. Love 01 Dujac.

Nice reddish tawny color, translucent with depth. Bright ripe bing cherry dominated nose. Notes of rhubarb, cherries, moist forest floor, a little menthol and some steminess. Still chewy in the mouth but well balanced, especially after an hour of air. Good stuff. Should get better with more time in the bottle though.

Tawny with some ruby in the center. Mostly translucent. Perfumed nose. Notes of sweet black cherry, earth, wet cedar, sandalwood and some tan spice. Has the funk. Still young in the mouth with some pucker that smoothes out with air. Nice showing. Still on the upslope.

Nice dark tawny color. Opaque. Closed nose not giving much, even with air. Some sweetness with notes of rhubarb, raspberry, spice and plum. Lots of backbone in the mouth. Reasonable finish. Maybe it never got enough air over 2 hours. Have had better bottles of this.

Tawny red to the rims. Almost opaque. Heavy in the glass. Fruity nose with notes of ripe rhubarb, flowers, cherries, dusty earth and a little menthol. Rich and impactful in the mouth. Makes the face flush. Nice balance of fruit and structure. Entering a nice drinking window but this wine has years of life ahead of it.

Yes it was a 2007 as once again it was in a 375 shiner. Totally fooled on this. More dense than I would've expected for 07. A touch reduced but not in too funky of a way. Learned some interesting things about reduction tonight from Diana and Jeremy. How it's much more likely to occur with properties using Biodynamic farming practices. Fascinating.
