    May 5, 2014 - Juan Gil ageing experiment FAIL for the 2005. This is gone. I am surprised so many others have a great experience who left notes in 2013. Mine has hot alcohol finish, flabby, stewed fruit. Score is not fault of the wine, these were elegant values in their youth and I would have rated at least 86 when it was released.

    March 23, 2012 - Initial impression of plum and pepper - almost spicy. Needed two hours to open up but rewarded the patience. Will save last bottle for another year.
