    November 9, 2013 - San Diego WineSpectator.com Offline, 11/9/2013 (Nine-Ten Restaurant, La Jolla, California): Decanted 30 minutes before tasting. Clear dark garnet. Glorious bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, black currant liqueur, toast, cloves, espresso, nutmeg, cocoa, forest floor. Similar on the palate, full body, rich and generous, excellent balance and structure, with long finish. Seaquam and I agreed that this was more open and mature than the 1991 Heitz MV. Cheers to SD-Wineaux for my #1 tonight. My first experience with this wine, glad I have some in the cellar.
