    November 7, 2014 - terrific. Decanted. Took at least an hour to show its best. Dark fruits. Wonderful texture, velvet.

    September 22, 2014 - 3 for my birthday (Maybach, Saxum, Clos des Papes) (My Home): Pop and pour, this needed about an hour to start to open. Luckily we had time. Purple in color. At first a bit port like but that changes with air. The nose has cassis, leather, a bit of vanilla and a bit of charred wood. Full bodied. Lots of depth. Showing nice layering as it unwinds in the glass. Great texture. Long finish. Worked just fine with dinner.

    COLOR: Deep ruby with medium ruby rim.

    NOTE: This was also an amazing wine. It was served a little warm so the alcohol was a little more pronounced, but all enjoyed it. Better than the 2006, this was almost as good as the 2008 Schrader GIII. It had a mix of black and red fruits, nice balance, and more elegance than the Schrader. Lovely wine. The bottle went fast at the WS El Bulli dinner.

    DECANT: 5 hours
    GLASS USED: Bordeaux
    TASTE: 9.5
    COST: 155
    VALUE: 7.0
    TRY AGAIN: now - 2020
    PAIRING: beef tenderloin and burnt onion jam

    May 16, 2014 - Nose - blackberry, oak
    Mouth - lush ultra ripe velvety fruit, really delicious fruit bomb with a fair amount of maple. On second go, porty and overoaked.
