While at my UPS Store going through all the shipments that came in yesterday and today and trying to figure out why there was an extra 2 labels (duplicate scans), it appears a box of Stillman's 2012 Colossus fell off the truck into my PO Box.
On Pop 'n Pour, I could smell the blackberry, sadly, my nose isn't the best tonight, as I have some congestion, so that's the limit tonight. But I couldn't smell or taste the high alcohol that was listed, unlike other wines I've had with high levels.
Enjoyable, the first glass was. Food had with second and third glasses, I did. Why sound like Yoda, do you?
Anyway, had some French Onion soup and a very nice Porterhouse steak, and both went very well with SB's Syrah.
This is not an in your face tannin Syrah, but a very, very nice Syrah. 4.5 hours later, and it is still drinking the same (nom, nom, nom).
In for 2 sets, since this is very nice for sharing. 90 on the Sparky scale.
As noted, this is not for long term aging, but more of "why didn't I open this sooner!" wine.
There's one or two sips left in the bottle for reporting tomorrow night on. Assuming this doesn't sell out first. Or I decide to finish it tonight.
