($93-$105) Bright ruby-red. Sweet cherry dominates the nose. Suave, sweet and spherical; a slightly high-toned fruit bomb, with flavors of cherry, blackberry, currant, crushed rocks and blackberry. An intriguing floral quality gives this very ripe wine a light touch and excellent back-end lift. Very easy to taste today, but this superconcentrated wine is likely to close down in the bottle.

Still tight but promises to be a big wine. Tannic but should smooth out in couple of years.

Dark purple with a great nose of cassis, tobacco, leather and a hint of blackberry. Very tight, firm tannins and plenty of acidity. Even with double decanting, it took some time in the glass to open up and was a pleasure to drink. HUGE potential with a few more years.

Site Blog: darlingville Quite pungent on the nose with rich, dark berry aromas. Somewhat high in tannins for my taste as a standalone wine, but very well executed.

I thought this Red Bordeaux was amazing. Smooth and satisfying with a great finish.
