Pre-Labor Day festivities with friends.

Stinky barnyard, new leather, dried cherry, wicked finish, still years to go, more notes later...

48 Hour Update:
Nose has ripe cherry syrup, moist earth, dry tree bark, ripe black cherry, ripe blackberry, light star anise and roasted meats.
Palate has ripe black cherry, cherry jam, dusty blackberry, light cedar notes, smoked and charred meats, dry earth and a very sappy finish that runs very long. Tannins are in a beautiful spot right now, they do not get in the way of the beautifully complex flavors, but just a gentle complement. Future bottles can be 2021-23.

Strikes that delicious balance of complexity and elegance.

Red fruits...not tannic and great acid balance. Cherries & Hibiscus, green peppercorn nose and slight tinge of smoke but not tobacco. Lovely pretty bottle of wine.

Fraise du bois, cherry pit, bay leaf. Nice herbaceousness underwrites stony minerality.

Underwhelming. Tastes like a caricature of an 03. All flab. The restaurant, however, is awesome.

2007 vintage. Cedar, cherry, a little smoke. This is medium bodied w nice but not great complexity. More like a fine PC than a GC
