2007.06.30 – Dinner at home with friends
Decanted for 30 minutes. Really helped. First sips were wonderful. The nose was even more intense with berries and spiciness. Cherry, dark berries, plum, and spicy herbal flavors made for lots of layers in the mouth. Balance throughout was very nice. Loved the finish with earth, mushroom, and vines. Went very well with the grilled Kenai salmon’s bold flavors.

2007.06.20 – CTS DMin Happy Hour
A little tight right out of the bottle, opened well after 30 minutes or so. Generous nose with dark berries, bell pepper and leather. Definitely an old-world style CDR with initial fruit and licorace in the mouth, followed by a long taste of the earth and vines. Plenty to chew on in this mouthful of flavors. Very round and supple. Definitely one of my favorite CDRs.
