Sixth of our seven year vertical tonight....Scratch that the 2014 and the 2003 came out too.

Deep ruby red. A touch of TCA on the nose with black fruits and spices underneath. It’s bearable. Medium tannins (6.5/10) and medium plus body. Seems a bit delayed and a touch of dark cocoa and black berries. Can’t rate or give drink by. If I did would be around a 91-2 ignoring the nose.

Dark garnet in color. Heady scents of bay leaf, red plum, and tobacco. Mid-palate of dark chocolate, raspberry, and a hint of graphite. Long, plush finish
