A Thanksgiving miracle! Was so worried that this bottle corked by the staining on the cork, but is all ended well! The fruit is barely there on this bottle from my favorite vineyard (Volcanic Hill) from Diamond Creek. Still an immense presence and complexity after decanting for 4 hours. Time had made this bottle a little more delicate than the others, but unmistakable Diamond Creek. Glasses were raised to Al and Boots as the vineyard has now been bought by Roederer. I believe it is in food hands.

1998 continues to be an underrated year and 1997 pruned and overripe for a lot of producers

A wine to enjoy over time. Rich and complex. Probably better with the right food.

Still showing signs of mulled cherries, plum compote. So clean and pure. Amber hues on the rim, concentration of sweet cobbler, chewy yet graceful. Finish goes on and on. Exceptional wine has shown life even from a subpar vintage
