Sebastiani - Secolo
Classic Cabernet flavors of cherry, plum and currant. Rich and soft textured. Definately a one day bottle, day two was not nearly as enjoyable as the fruit flavors faded. Remains a must buy every year for me. I think I enjoed the '03 more.
Flowers - Pinot Noir Frances Thompson Vineyard
Good nose on opening. Overly acidic and flavors fade instead of building as the wine is exposed to air. Very disappointing. Second Flowers in a row that was not worth the money or time.
Novy - Syrah Rosella's Vineyard
Dark inky purple color. Great nose..earth/forest floor and dark cherry. Dark cherry and blackberry or currant flavors. Full bodied, thick texture
Caymus - Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Classic Caymus, but not my favorite vintage (could be bottle variation). Great nose that disappated quickly. There was an off sour cherry flavor that took away from the total enjoyment. No where near as good as the 1994
Walter Hansel - Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard
Elegant, burgundy style pinot. Strawberry/floral aroma & flavors with hints of vanilla.
