February 26, 2014 - This wine still very young - very nice, but has not yet budged much from my last tasting 19 months ago
Will continue to evolve

January 12, 2014 - Bright cherry, plum, and green apple nose. Moderate acidity with combination of dark fruit, tart cherry, and faint bitter/black licorice finish. Very enjoyable.

December 13, 2013 - Last bottle, ditto last note. Fruit needs a little more concentration to warrant a higher score. Gives me a feeling of heading downwards, is it fading?

October 28, 2013 - Had this for the first time about one year ago at a tasting. It was the surprise of the night.
This time, had i with Lamb Crown Roast and a gingered cabbage side dish. Fantastic showing. All loved the wine and it was well matched with the meal.Opened the bottle about 1 hour before drinking but, did not decant because I was concerned it was past its prime. Tannins are resolved and the fruit balances the wine well. Have one more bottle left. looking forward to another great showing.

(TIRANT Rotllan Torra) Late
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)
