    July 12, 2011 - From magnum. An interesting and wonderful wine, though probably drinking at its peak maturity. Some bricking at the rim of the glass. Complex, lovely nose of wet earth, tobacco, pencil lead, spice, and mature fruit. In the mouth, a wine that changed as it was exposed to more air and with each sip. Fully resolved structure allowed the mouth feel to take on an almost feminine quality, with terrific balance and elegance. There was plenty of fruit, showing a touch of dried currant, and layers of earth and spice that grew deeper and more resonant with time. Strong finish. A really nice wine. A-/A
