Found a couple of bottle in the cellar. Best to describe this wine as “thin”. Not much fruit more of that barnyard on the nose. Not terrible but is just there. Best guess I should have found this sooner!

Still drinking well with good intensity, but definitely needed some time to open up. Like some other 2005s recently, seems to have lost some forward fruit but still maintains lots of acidity...

Still young, but this is drinking well with an hour in the decanter. The dusty, smoky nose is followed by dark fruit, leather, forest floor, and some wood spice. The tannins are still perky, so it works best with food for now. Wish I had more to drink over the next 10 years.

With a label like this I'm thrilled it was good. Six pack of this per vintage.
