One of my favorite Sonoma producers. This ex Rock promoter has a beautiful estate and tasting room north of the town of Sonoma with really nice people. Deep ruby, almost opaque, with a nice nose of black fruits, plum, a tad of liquorice, some vanilla and spicy nuances. Soft lush entry, solid weighty mid-palate, and a 4-lapper finish. Needs maybe 1-3 more to resolve some tannins. A super effort as usual. 90/88. 39 by the box. WW

You sure about that price there for the '96 oh wise won? (that's short for WW). The bottle I posted on 12/26 I paid low twenties for a single bottle. And yes a very nice bottle.

Sorry Drew, ole' fat-fingers done struck agin. Should be 29.95. ( Allow for the srong distrubtor mark-up here.)WW Your Pats are really looking good.

I hope your not accusing me of being a Patriots fan!!!! Hell we're bird lovers here, Ravens and Orioles...although I do so love to watch the Colts get slammed!!!

Opened another of these last nite. Not too much change except the nose seemed more upfront. Will let this sucker rest now till 05. WW
