For me, wine is about the experience and, for most of us, there are few places to get a more hands-on experience than in a winery’s tasting room.
Like the 2007 Harrison Hill, the tannins are huge on this wine. Black fruit, herb, and vanilla notes, it's definitely a mouthful, but still incredibly well balanced. The finish on this thing goes on forever. I would suggest decanting for 1-2 hours before drinking. Read more on RJ's Wine Blog.
The Harrison Hill was the top of the heap for me in our DeLille tasting (with the Doyenne and Chaleur Blanc close behind). Big and dark and tannic and complex, with a finish that lasted well into each next taste. A bit pricey at $75 a bottle, but this one I think is worth it. Read more on RJ's Wine Blog.
My wife and I were both blown away by this wine—huge nose for a blanc, with all kinds of great elements: grapefruit, lemon, honey, fig, and minerals. It's buttery, but not oaky, allowing the wine to completely cover the palate, quickly, and not set off any oak alarms. Picked up a few bottles of this at the winery and debating whether or not I should pick up more. This will be a mainstay white in our house, no question. Read more on RJ's Wine Blog.
Just recently had the '06 Doyenne Syrah and thought it was great. In comparison to the AIX (link!), this one is just a touch more drinkable, mostly because of the increased acidity. Again, a big Syrah from Doyenne, with broad mouthfeel and long, lingering finish. Well worth a try if you haven't had it already. Read more on RJ's Wine Blog.
