3rd night since pulling the cork. Red currant and dark cherry abound. Purity, purity, purity, what a great mouthfeel to this wine. Rich but not as dense as the RM Panek. Leaning to a dark red berry profile, creamy with a touch of cedar and tar. Exceptional balance with not a hint of the 15.1% alc. Very layered, long and satisfying. Just a tremendous bottle of wine.

Lucious. Espresso, blackberry, graphite and smoke. Port-like mouthfeel.

2014 Mag, he’s been staring at me for awhile. Time to see what its all about,
A little alcohol burn at first, needs a good decant to blow it off. Probably too early on this one but I needed the room in storage.
But so good! once you decant it

It’s a lot thinner than other Dr Cranes. Which, for me, isn’t as good. There’s also some acidity on the finish which I don’t love. Maybe a decanting of the wine would help a little.

Spectacular Dr. Crane wine. One of the more memorable wines from the past weekend. Also, a pleasure meeting @Mike Smith!

Blueberry, blackberry and lead pencil. There is plenty of acid and the tannins are beginning to soften. The wine has nice aging potential.
