Hey I respected Rogov - as always, but the wine is a 90/91 wine. Love it and hoard it :D

Hi Harry,

Here's my TN (from about 6 months ago):

Dalton Alma, Rhone Blend 2009: Deep, beautiful dark purple in color, blackcurrant, leather and cherries on both the nose and palate with clear licorice showing on the mid-palate and a hint of black pepper and saddle leather with nice tannins on the round and moderately long finish. Delicious.

Best,

GG

I'm late to the party, but everyone is right--no way this is an 88/90 wine. Very comfortable A- (~92).
