Very precise, focused
Medium body on the palate, but very elegant and persistent
Bordeaux like lacking some weight I think

Off the scales elegant, refined and beautifully lifted. Roses and dark cherry with stems on the nose led a seamless and perfectly integrated Orni verging on Burgundy. Restrained power and overt femininity. So lovely from magnum. Drink over next 5 years.

With my boys here in Detroit. It’s 5p somewhere...
Nice tobacco notes on the nose. Black cherries on the palate with, earth and a meaty dimension. Pure silk and crushed velvet on the mid-palate. Finishes with hints of truffle - outstanding.

Double magnum. Young but a very fine wine.

A classic from @Shay A showing lots of power and purple fruit, some cedar/wood notes, very polished but still a baby at age 12. It should age and evolve gracefully.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Dark! This is Napa-esque. Extraction city with black and red fruit...cassis and clove on the nose. Fresh squeezed blackberries and charred grilled cherry. Tannic and in need of a few years to enter a prime drinking window. This was one of my bottles with the help of

A fine Orni wearing its age like a crown. So fragrant, dark red flowers, nutty notes. There’s still a lot of structure, with good fruit but fading after 20 mins in glass, so I’d drink up - this was from magnum.
