Tablas Creek vertical. This and the 2007 Panoplie were the winners of the night. Both drinking very well right now. Regular Beaucastel more traditional CdP style, very well done. Panoplie more rustic flavor, but still damn good.

In a nice spot, opening up again with lots of depth and complexity. Seems a little more roasted than I remember, but I suspect that's more about where my palate is lately than the wine...

Bright red fruit, savory notes, and hints of cocoa powder. Rhone red blends make me happy!
