rdalehite 93

2009 Seghesio Family - Zinfandel Sonoma County
Romance in a glass . Elegant nose of dark chocolate and tones of blue berries. Mild tannis, cocoa, ink, dark cherry notes. Long finish. This wine is still humming (surprisingly). Glad I have one more bottle.

2006 Rudd - Oakville Estate Red
This wine was very interesting. Compared to a white burgundy, a very beautiful 12 year old Pinot and a Vouvre this was a monster. After a 1 hour decant the nose was humming with pencil shavings and an old Bordeaux-style earth scent. Big, vanilla, creme de cassis, and graphite to the mouth I was very impressed and thought it would be a 98 point wine. However, soon after it really mellowed, losing much of it's punch into a much lighter version of itself. So only giving it a 96. However, still a wonderful wine and experience.

2006 Edge Hill - Mixed Blacks Field Blend
Beautiful wine that is in a really good place right now. Early taste of the wine (10 minutes after opening showed it was closed) but after 45 minutes the wine moved to a very elegant state. Notes of blackberry, cocoa and lots of graphite this wine delivered a solid finish. It's not a huge wine but it's also not weak either. Brooding and dark but with balance.

2004 Edge Hill - Mixed Blacks Field Blend
Getting past peak,light notes and mild finish. Not the powerhouse I expected but a good wine. Took hours for it to open up.
