Palmina - Nebbiolo Sisquoc Vineyard
A really good showing for this wine. Bright, complex, layered red cherry aromas and flavors, well integrated tannins, and pronounced but still balanced acidity. Could probably improve further for 3-5 years.
Paul Jaboulet Aine - Hermitage La Chapelle
This one has finally come out of its shell. Not especially typical - more floral red fruit than smoke and leather. Beautifully balanced, with firm but well integrated tannins sitting in the background. Could develop some more complexity over the next several years. Karen recommends decanting early. Comparisons with the 1988 will be interesting.
Amethyst - Vinalia
In late maturity - the fruit is starting to fade a little. Drink up soon.
