No doubt where this fruit comes from. Beautiful, dark currants, cassis, blackberries, dark cherries, plum, creamy black raspberries, dry soils, tobacco, coffee, leather, dry crush rocks, dry stems and very dark florals. Drinking nicely and will continue to get better.

Terrific wine at over 12 years old. Cherries, vanilla, mocha. Still vibrant as anything. Really good.

@David A Lentine Thank you David for sharing this awesome bottle from your cellar with me!! The 07 is in a great place right now. Love the dark berries: blueberry, boysenberry & blackberry. That's right up my alley!! I love it!
Soft, no rough edges and it's hitting the front, mid and back. Awesome bottle of wine! I owe you one bud! 😍🍷🍷😍👏👏👏

A whole lot of tannins, slightly astringent and a bunch of acidity. I wasn't feeling it tonight and I'm a fan of the Pritchard Hill.

Extraordinary balance. Savory component, herbs. More complex contemplative mountain fruit > valley floor cassis bomb. Out of magnum.

Complex - tobacco, potting soil and flowers. Lots of life left.

Blackberry, blueberry, anise seed, violets. Smooth, great structure, berries and dark chocolate on the palate. Drinking exceptionally well.
