Seconded. I haven't had the 2012 but I've had an earlier vintage and it was great. It benefits quite a bit from some air. What would you recommend as the ideal drinking window?

Another interesting article:

If I hadn't just inventoried & realized how much wine I need to drink, I'd give this offer a try.

So Stillman, were you a consulting winemaker on these? What does a consulting winemaker do?

And why is there so much Tannat in the Tempranillo?

Strictly speaking, just "consultant" which means I smoke cigars and talk too much. Generally speaking, it means not get dirty - though I haven't got the hang of that part.
Because they're planted close to each other, and there's not enough Tannat to make fermentation volume, and it seemed to us that they would work together (as they did in the previous vintage as well). I doubt we'd use Alicante Bouschet in the same role.

We got to taste these after D&D, and they held up very well. I would be for two sets, if the Wootmobile wasn't full of wine right now.

Although I might change my mind before 10!
I really liked the Syrah.

This is tempting but not in the market for stuff at this price point right now.

I finally was able to dig out from the weekend as well. Happened to find the remnants of these two bottles buried in a box. Opened since Friday night with nothing special for preservation, just recorked. I will have to muster some palate and try these again. Stay posted.

In for 1. I also got to try these after D&D.. I LOVED the Syrah!! Was a bit afraid of the high alcohol content. But after one sip, I was hooked! Super smooth, bold and yummy!! If I didn't just come home with mega amounts of wine, I would be in for 2 ... but will be happy with 1!
