One of the four celebratory wines this weekend for my recent promotion. Dark garnet red. Tons of cedar on the nose, dark spices, a touch herbal and some blackberries. Heavy tannins (7.5/10) and full bodied. Nice restrained dark berries on the palate with some anise, and dark cocoa. Dark crushed gravel near the finish. Drink till 2025.

Honestly like this more than the big sister. Won't age as well but drinking lovely right now. Great with the prime rib tonight.

The last 2005 Maiden in my cellar. Harlan's 2nd wine. Velvety smooth & luscious just delicious. While I know it is still a baby, I just had to open up & enjoy.

Wow! What a treat. Silky smooth with nice tannins. Blackberry and blueberry fruit. Could still go a few more years. 2005 vintage.
