December 8, 2016 - A little sour patch red fruited character I hadn't noticed before. Drinks well, but more diffuse than it used to be.1 person found this helpful Comment

August 5, 2016 - Fresh black raspberry, red vines, mocha, and sap. Just lovely. I don't see any point in holding these though, my recent bottles are more diffuse and lack the intensity without much other development from years ago.

May 9, 2016 - Same profile as always but lacking the intensity and electric energy of previous bottles and insufficient fruit to cover the considerable tannin that remains.

November 20, 2015 - Black licorice, pine, cinnamon, EtOH, ozone, spicy Grenache nose. Powerful palate vibrating with energy, black raspberry, sappy, intense. Love this, and tasting somewhat mature to me.

(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)
