Monthly 4th Friday is post Thanksgiving this year, so lots of Thanksgiving style wines!

Tight on the nose. A flavor punch of raspberries and blackberries dipped in maple bark. Very herbal and savory on the palate with acidity that is surprising for its age (in a good way). It actually tasted like a young, fruit forward CdP with black pepper, dates, and ripe blackberries. Drinking really well right now. Thanks

From 12 Liter at dinner at the vineyard. Nice to have a bottle that serves 80! Delish too.

After an hour this one was doing remarkably well. Nose of black cherry and raspberry with age on the nose. The entry was tobacco and cola alongside black cherry. This one is a little bit on the downslope. Surprised at the depth of this wine at 13 years. Softer finish. Newer wines from this producer definitely have much more noteworthy stiff punchy tannin. This one did not have that characteristic, which made the bouquet so much more lovely on the finish. Very lovely. I think I'd give a lot of their younger stuff right around a 9.0 or 9.1 with youth, but this one gains some points with age.
