Opulent fruit. Tasted like a Napa Cult.

Big fruit and nice smooth finish but mid-palette was a bit flat. Got better with time. Hit the zone after a three hour decant

Need a big steak with this. Tannins and a bit of heat. Cocoa and toast, dark fruit.

Wow. Just wow. At $250, I probably won't have it again.

2008 Quilceda Creek Galitzine Vineyard. Damn good. Mellowed out with great blue fruits.

Given the scores for this wine, I found it a little hot. However, it has a nice smokiness with lots of dark fruit on the nose. On the palate, the plums, boysenberry and anise come through very strong.
