Nose has moist cedar shavings, cherry compote, mashed ripe blackberries, smokey strawberry, sugared graham cracker, light earthy/vegetative notes and faint alcohol. Palate has under-ripe strawberry, dried cherry, dried blackberry, moist chalk, dry loan, mineral dust with mild tannins and a long finish. This bottle seems slightly ackward tonight, even after a 5H decant. I'm hopeful it should reveal more tomorrow, as usual I underestimated how much time is needed for the Liaison. A very solid pairing to a middle eastern style dish. We flattened chicken breasts, dredged them in a flour/za'atar/aleppo pepper blend, then gently fried. They were topped with a salad of scallion/lemon zest/walnuts/lemon juice. The dish was 95 points!

Sappy and snappy. Great nose of sour cherry ooze, cracked rock dust, graham cracker, and mossy undergrowth. Tremendous minerality in the mouth is accented by very good acidity. Very pure barely ripe cherry fruit is the first whack, but then quickly turns minerally as the fairly long finish evolves. Tremendous with a simply roasted chicken. UPDATE: On night 2, after 24 hours under a vacuum closure, it was fading and showing an oxidative note. So drink ‘em if you got ‘em.

In a terrific place. Nose of smokey berries, cherries, pine resin, gorgeous detail. Very very aromatic. In a zone. Elegant and juicy, with lovely sweet fruit and loads of earth. Ethereal. Gossamer like tannins and lovely persistence. A great wine.

Complex, deep and expressive. But also a bit saturated and rich in a way that seemed slightly sweet when tasted next to a Burgundy. Incredible nose. Great wine for the money. Better on day two.

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, the youths (mostly college)! Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading one operatic work from WAGNER (Die Walküre, Act I). This is our WAGNER weekend with the BSO, Acts II & III will be performed tomorrow afternoon and evening. On the nose we have light cedar box, black pepper, ripe blackberries/strawberries and voilet blossom. On the palate we have chalky Pinot fruits, sweet spice notes, earthy/loamy minerals, ripe cherry and blackberry. In a very nice place tonight!

Tastes like ... liaison in a great year. Nice ripe fruit combined with classic E&M spice and a bit of licorice. Nose is ... hard to describe... because it’s sort of unique. Great wine. Bought from Fass selections.

Fanatstically aromatic nose with loads of ripe red fruit and some roses. On the palate, great acidity, pomegranate, cranberry, some bitterness, but a nice finish, with a touch of chalky tannin. Very appealing right now, but seems like it has the stuffing to improve with a bit of bottle age.
