Another 4th Friday for the books! Insane pulls this month to follow up the most epic month (April) that we’ve ever had!

Total treat. Plum and lead but not overbearing at all. Some cherry, earthy funk, clay. Still has 5-7yrs of life ahead of it. Incredibly smooth.

Dark tawny. Opaque. Huge nose. Notes of black cherry, menthol, ripe blueberries, graphite, moist soil, plums and a little anise. Rich and silky in the mouth. Still youthful. Perfectly balanced. Long finish. I know this wine is controversial to some but it's always performed for me.

Pretty tender - giving up its fund to a glorious aroma - wax, dried fruits potpourri - svelte and very long flavors. Great with aged cheeses

The fruit jumps out at you. Best in a Pinot glassware even though it’s Syrah. Beautiful aromatics.

A bit uninspired and soft. But, I wouldn’t kick it out of bed for eating crackers.

Bright acidity still, wonderful bottle, drink up if you have '98's, this will be near the end soon.

Enjoyed with Mahi Mahi Curry at Cantina 229, New Marlborough, MA.
