A deeply complex wine and an excellent off vintage success showing power, grace, focus and a great representation of its terroir. Sweet red cherries, hibiscus, damp soil and exotic spices. Although perhaps not quite as structured and long as I imagine 2005 would be, this was truly a terrific showing.

Still bright purple with some tawny. Looks young and vibrant in the glass. Powerful nose. Bing cherry, moist soil, sandalwood, ripe rhubarb, and Asian spice. Rich and round in the mouth. Screams red burg. WOTN for many, including me. (Bday dinner 8/13)

Light amber, thin and tawny. Delicate. Soft nose at first shows some sweet red fruit. Made you wonder if this would decline or improve with air. Over 6 hours this got better and better. The delicate fruit firmed up and a great structure emerged that held on til the last sip. Cherries, sois bois, flowers, and some spice. The boyz guessed old DRC. Fun to try and it impressed all of us. (Bday dinner 9/13)

Rather reticent on the nose, could’ve done with some air. Spate of dense, ripe fruit, lavender, tea leaf and baking spices; at times it was reminiscent of a freshly baked boysenberry pie. Impeccable mouth feel, wears you like a velvet glove and drives home a long finish.

This has a spectacularly expansive nose. Roses, dark cherry, floral stuff, some underbrush. Sweet, delicate, succulent and heady. Really brilliant on the nose. The palate is soft and resolved but vibrant. A touch feminine and super sexy with sweet edges. Very long and dazzling. Wow.

The 2nd wine in the group of 6. Medium bodied yet rich, sweet and spicy. Very good intensity and cellaring potential.

Still so young. Tannins were ripe but firm. Great complexity and intensity. The fruit still dominated. Great balance. Really opened up over two hours. Needs another 5-10 years.

Plum, smoke & oolong tea with wet earth and iron on the nose. Candied cherries, rhubarb pie and aged leather on the nose.

Tasted blind. Reddish purple but light and translucent. Notes of raspberry, dark fruit, spice and some rhubarb. Puckering and chewy in the mouth. Still present tannins. Was nice today but this will be better in 10-15 years.
