I consider myself Lucky to still have 3 bottles of this superb wine. They are even better than the ones I drank over the last few years. So it is still holding pretty well, but I won't push my luck further than 2016. This is a perfect exemple of the opportunity to be able to store wine and wait for it to mature.

Strong black pepper and spice on the attack. Lingering bitterness. Tastes like it should cost a fraction of what it does. Approx. $25USD in Seoul.

Very dark in colour, inky.
Interesting nose of dark fruit and cassis that continued to the palate.
Drinking very well now.

I only had 2 of these so I wanted to wait until it was ready. Check.
Next bottle?

Not my go-to style, although, undeniable quality. Bordering on 90. The high alcohol is well integrated in massess of dark fruit - the added viognier is the probable savior preventing this to be too jammy.

Ruby red, herb, mint, cherry nose. More herbs, spice and plum tastes and a ripe juicy body. Really delivers - incredible value.

2/7/2016 - La Cave d'Argent Likes this wine: 94 points

From a bottle purchased upon release and cellared in pristine fashion, this deep red/garnet wine has achieved a beautiful balance of structure, fruit and tertiary aromas. With a core of dark cherry and blackberry fruit, it has now developed complimentary nuances of pipe tobacco, saddle leather, lavender and cocoa. Full-bodied, freshly acidic and with medium-weight tannins which are now supple in texture, it has excellent mid-palate presence and throws no heat from its 15.0% alcohol. Closing with impressive length, this reminds me of the saying "good things come to those who wait." There is plenty enough stuffing here to allow well-cellared bottles their spotlight for at least another five years. Drink now-2021.

HWS Game dinner: Special wine. Sparkling. Some oxidized and moscatel impressions. A lot of sweetness. No real complexity. No score.

2/7/2016 - Caruso Likes this wine: 95 points

Stored in perfect conditions since release. Not decanted! Ruby with orange rim. Intense cigar box and mint at first, then adding toffee. On the palate black currant, black cherries, cigar (havanna I guess), cedar, chamomile, herbs. I wonder if this would be recognized in a top bordeaux blind tasting of full mature vintages. Very long finish. Great! Hard to tell how one give it less than excellent ratings.

Good fish wine cuts lemon acidity. Refreshing grapefruit, but also a little briny. Refined but assertive.

Big, bright fruit. Not jammy, more macerated dark berries with some earthy tannins on the finish. Much better on the second night than the first. Thanks to K&L's $10 deal, I'll have a few more to enjoy over this year!

Decanted 3 hours ahead, served with filets mignon. Still young but at least now holding together. Will not open another to 2018.
