    April 22, 2017 - Deep ruby-garnet core. Ink, violets, plum, espresso bean and asian spice on the nose. Dry, balanced acidity, with soft tannins. Very refined and well-structured, with excellent fruit intensity (plum, dark cherry) and a soft, silky finish. The oak has served the wine well and done its job; this is much more integrated than the last bottle I had a few years back, and the fruit is still vibrant and fresh. No rush to drink this, though it is in a good place at the moment, with a proper decant.

    April 12, 2017 - Still young. Deep fruit and cigar, but tannins are strong. Should improve.

    February 11, 2017 - This bottle has a muddled alcoholic character in addition to the licorice verve. My least interesting bottle of this over the last 7 years.

    January 22, 2017 - Amazing complexity with black cherries, potpourri and forest floor holding hands all along the way. Layers upon layers of goodness. Drinking in its prime.

    January 7, 2017 - Had for Layna's 50th birthday. Excellent. Smooth. Smokey in a good way.

    (TIRANT Rotllan Torra) Late

    Dear Friends,

    A few deals arrived late tonight that are quite interesting - all are worth a look but they are not for the shy. These are full-impact wines but they have eccentricities and a unique character that separates them from the norm.

    All are directly from the source with perfect provenance:

    1999 Tenuta di Trenoro (Toscana) IGT(AG90)

    2003 Rotllan Torra Tirant (Priorat) 1.5lt

    Quite rare in this format - one of the more regal wines coming out of Priorat...

    2005 L & A Lignier Morey-St-Denis "Les Chaffots" 375ml (BH89-92)

    Thank you,
