Ordered at Berns Steakhouse for $230. Absolutely a stunner. Perfect balance, light bodied. Has 10 plus years left on it. Awesome finish. Great value. Somms did mention their wines last longer since they are stored at 50 degrees. There are three bottles left in their private reserve cellar. Incredible.
