12’ Sea Smoke TEN Estate.
Waited 3 years before I opened my last bottle. Not that it wasn’t drinking three or four years ago. It was terrific at that time! Different now...
Decanted it for 30 minutes. Nose has always sold this wine for me. No matter what vintage! Aromas of black raspberry, baked cherry pie.
The first sip delivers & carries over the black raspberry, lavender, moderate aged oak(the TEN always has healthy amount of spices) lush & long finish. Moderate acidity & muture tannins. Great time to enjoy! Will age gracefully for another 7/10 years.

We just love the intense extraction that is presented here. Tannins border on gritty and maybe a touch green - love em. Beautiful structure and mouthfeel. Maraschino cherries, supported by a complex wood treatment. Loving it.
@David A Lentine and Kristen are rock stars for gifting this gem to us.

12' Sea Smoke Ten Magnum. Much more approachable than I thought it would be.

Nose is so complex. @Joe Lucca would describe this as campfire. Also detect petals and earth. Extravagant mouthfeel and texture. Burnt matches, baking spices, dark cherries and cola berries. Ethereal balance.
