So tired of pricey domestic reds that have zero staying power. This was “over the hill” by A LOT at only a decade old. It must have been good at some point or I would not have purchased it and squirreled it away in my cellar. Another one down the drain...

Blackberry, black cherry, vanilla, cassis, grilled meat on nose.

Tasting - Still has some time left. High alcohol level not apparent. Eucalyptus? Nice wine and good finish. Good acid there. Better than expected.

Hooped always has no fruit. Big character. Big big potential. Loved the 05 and 06, this is amazing out of the bottle.

Delicious. Velvety tannins, dark fruit, long finish. What's not to love.

Very heavy and lots of tannins right now. Probably because of 10 years old. Will be better tomorrow after some air.
