March 21, 2017 - Bordeaux-themed Night (La Fleur Petrus) (Extra Space): Tasted blind. Had been poured into decanter. Lots of sediments. Drank over 3 hours.
Appearance murky, deep intensity, ruby colour. Legs.
Nose is clean, medium+ intensity, with aromas of mushroomy earth, mint, metallic minerality, black cherries, red cherries, slight soy sauce. Developed.
On the palate, dry, high acidity, medium+ alcohol (14%), high tannins, full body. Medium+ flavour intensity, with flavours of sweet dark red plums, black cherries, leather, mushroom earth, mint. Long finish.
Very good quality. Easily guessed this as a SuperTuscan amongst the Bordeaux line-up of the night.
Drinking very well now. Let it stand for a day or two to let the sediment settle.
Blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot.

December 25, 2016 - Dark ruby/purple color turning violet at the rim with a transparent edge. The nose gives off complex aromas of dark berries, espresso, and smoke. The palate is full-bodied and dense with black currants, dark chocolate, volcanic stone, glowing embers and a hint of spice. The finish is quite persistent with sweet, chewy tannin even at 15 years of age. Drink now until 2021. Exceptionally delicious but was edged out overwhelmingly by the 2001 Flaccianello that we tasted alongside.

May 21, 2016 - RICH BLACKBERRY FRUIT IN THE NOSE AND FLAVOR WITH A HINT OF CLOVES AND VIOLETS IN THE NOSE. BLACK CHERRIES AND CURRANTS IN THE FLAVOR. COMPLEX WINE WITH A LONG FINISH.

January 1, 2016 - What GTHELEN said, although my score is in the 90s. Solid wine and ready to go but can hold.
