We recently pulled some cases out of storage, which haven't seen the light of day for nearly 15 years, so I'll have some fun posts in the next several months.

Nose has dusty cherry, dried blackberry, tanned leather, old cedar cigar box, shriveled blueberry, dried black currant, violets, mashed blueberry and dark roast coffee.

Palate has rehydrated blackberry, dried cherries, dried blueberry, dry potting soil, over-ripe black currant, chocolate powder, medium tannins, long finish; polished and beautiful!!

Paired with enchiladas with my homemade sauce from the summer of 2019 tomato harvest, local beef from Columbia Co NY; the dish and the wine lifted each other.

Could hold this bottle until its 20th birthday in proper storage, likely a little more. A perfect and supple cork pull tonight.

Listening to the beautiful vocal prowess tonight of Catherine Russell, life is good. No COVID-19 lockdown in MA yet, but it's gotta be around the corner...

$38, September 2005.

Spanish and Portuguese night at wine club! Dark garnet color and tons of legs. Smokey, spicy, dark fruit goodness. Lots of layers here. The husband found this and I love it

2008. This is my first experience with this wine. It's enjoyable, a bit mushroomy, lovely tannins.

Sweet leather, coffee, mushrooms and truffle. Very tannic, rich and succulent, however overly hot and lacking acidity, minerality, and therefore balance and elegance. Beautiful nose, falling apart palate, drink up. 2003 vintage.

Very dry oak flavors. Exactly what we were looking for to end the night.

We really loved this wine! HWT $80 on power buy $30. It was rich and flavorful with a hint of amarone type of flavor. 16%
