Mommessin - Clos de Tart
Medium-red w/ red fruit, but with a touch of dark, brambly notes. Over time, opened up to be even darker. Tannins pleasant, but present.
Montevertine - Le Pergole Torte Riserva
Refined sangiovese, but without the jaw dropping gorgeousness of other vintages . Normale, mis-inventoried as riserva.
Kistler - Pinot Noir Bodega Headlands Vineyard Cuvee Elizabeth
Consumed in two sittings. Full, rich, powerful, lengthy with oak.
Clarendon Hills - Shiraz Astralis
Mature, thick ripe, but not a crowd pleaser (glasses pushed to the side). Bits of mint. Another disappoint from this purchased lot (lot issue?).
