Second wine at Chops Grill aboard the Harmony of the Seas. Deep and dark ruby red with lighter edges. Given a four hour decant. Dark nose that was a bit tight to start. Some notes of dark berries, plums, cinnamon, anise and a little floral. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Still tastes so young but well integrated with notes of oak, dark cherries and spices. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2032.

Night seven on the Allure of the Seas and this time at we are ordering in for some room service from the specialty restaurants.

This is a big wine and needed the lengthy decant, we decanted for around four hours. Dark ruby red with garnet edges. Dark and thick nose with spices, smooth dark fruits, plums, cinnamon and purple flowers. Heavy sweet tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Powerful and intense on the palate with layers of cherry liquor, dark berries, anise, woody, dark cocoa and dark cherries. Long and lingering finish. Long life left ahead of this baby. Drink till 2032.

This '07 is still showing beautifully and shows no signs of going downhill. Spicy boysenberry and raspberry flavors dominate with balanced acidity and a persistent finish make for a favorable experience.

07' Pahlmeyer Proprietary Red. This is quite nice right out of the gate. With a 2 hour decanting & this is even more expressive. A big bang wine & elegant at the same time. I love that style of wine! Big black fruits(Blackberry Jam) with no rough edges. Nice-moderate/light acidity. A long finish(30sec)...drinking window is NOW- many great years in it. I wonder what's tasting better now, this or the 2002?

Took quite some time to open up, but when it did, was packed with delicious, rich flavored dark berries and cocoa, with a hint of vanilla.
