Cherry and dark fruit on the nose, looooong finish with all kinds of wonderful wooden, tobacco, vanilla notes. Delicious.

Blackberry, cherry cola, raspberry, vanilla, plum, mossy earth and oak. Good structure and velvety tannins.

Very good aromas of deep red berries. Full palette and very smooth finish. The 2010 in a side by side compare was better and richer. Interestingly enough the wind varietal mix was also different as well as the bottle.

Could be that it is just too young, in need of decanting (this was popped and poured at a group event), or likely both, but this is too big for my palate.

Lots of tannin even after 14 years. Beautiful wine.

Magnum. Thoroughly enjoyed this. Big but not in your face with soft tannins but enough backbone to hold up to everything else we were drinking.

I'm a sucker for Alexander Valley fruit and this does not disappoint. Plum and cassis with firm tannins and a hint of bittersweet chocolate.
