A new bottling for Tom that kinda replaces the lovely Bordeaux Blend. Don't remember the exact % of Cab & Merlot but will look it up and make a re-post later. Lovely brite deep ruby. Took a half hour for any aromatics but they eventually took hold showing red fruits, flowers and some spice. Infanticide fer sure on this baby but wanted to get an ideer. Big entry, solid center and a 4 lapper. Definately deserves a 90/92. will go up in 3-4. 32 on mailing list 14.9% alc. WW

HJad another at the club for lunch yesterday and it is coming along swimmingly. Nose is showing violets and some roses but the emphasis is on brite fruits with some plumminess coming on. Still some solid tannins in the background that will carry it easily the 2-3 it needs. No change in scoring at this time. WW

Another for lunch today. Seems to expand in all the good places with each bottle. Love the mouthfeel. Nose goes on and on. Hate having to drink these hummers alone. May get together with some of the guys next week if I can get CB stabilized. WW

Well, yup. If it's a Dehlinger post, it must be Verne. How come no one else drinks Dehlinger??? I'm as guilty as anyone else because I've never even had any Dehlinger wines.

I've never bought one either. I rarely see it in MA but see it in SF when I'm there. Might want to take up Verne's suggestions.
