Best Monday lunch shift I’ve ever worked. And they left me a sip too, so now I can confirm that the 2010 vintage is ready and willing. What a sublime experience this wine will offer you. Tongue tingling up to ten mins after that sip. Full, and absolutely gorgeous.

Think we had a corked wine. That pungent nose released a bit, but still tainted the experience. Softer tannins, but astringent taste. Too bad.

Still youthful. Opaque dark ruby color. Lots of red and black currant fruit, hints of tobacco, leather, spices. But, it’s just lacking something in the middle.

A wonderful soft delivery of blackberry and cherry. Tannins are still present, but background noise to the fruit that is pushing forward to say hello. Delicious.

Masterful. Aged to a nicely smooth black cherry festival. Waves of red and black fruit.

Big and black fruit blackberries and black cherries. Soft and round. Rolling tannins. Notes of raspberries and choc

It Was the battle of the 1999’s tonight!
I believe this came in second place. Very light and somewhat Bordeauish in style.
The tannins are gone, the dark opulent fruit is gone, I’m getting forest floor, Dark cherry, Graphite and a medium to long finish. I think I may prefer it to drinking young!
