Anyone sitting on some ‘06 Alpine Hillside PN should open one as this is in a great place. Wonderful balance with a lengthy mineral, black cherry, raspberry and blackberry finish with a kiss of acidity. Thrilled to have one bottle left. Corks on the 06’s remain problematic. Make sure to have an ah so opener on hand.

I subscribe to the break-it-and-swear school on '06 Rhys corks. The regular Alpine is nice now too...think I dipped one last fall.

Cheers,

Thanks, I still have one of those, maybe I'll pull it from storage soonish.
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.
