    March 16, 2017 - Aromas of cassis and lead pencil. Maybe just a hint of green pepper. Very classic medium to full body. Long finish but still showing tannins. No shame to drink this now but it is also a long way off from maturity.

    March 1, 2017 - Very open and generous on the nose - smoke, tobacco, spices, graphite, earth and cassis. Rich on the palate, great fruit, sweet and ripe. Tannins are very much in the background, but there is still good structure and grip. Very smooth and long, maybe just a little less vibrant than my top 3 (1982, 1985, 1996) in this vertical . Drink or keep. 93-95

    February 26, 2017 - Not as scintillating as the previous bottle yet still excellent. Much more linear and not as open, this bottle displayed lots of dark red fruit and flavor with excellent tannins and acidity. Held very well in the glass for a couple of hours.

    February 21, 2017 - This wine really delivers after 2 hr of decanting. Truffle, earth, black fruit, red fruit, and perfume. Palate is deep and long. It has so much power with finesse. Drinking very well now with at least 10-15 years at this level.

    February 19, 2017 - Incredibly well preserved, with no real bricking. Seems as though this could last another decade or so, although I doubt it will get better. Seamless, balanced and long, with fruit peaking out from behind earthy and mineral notes. Very long and pure on the finish.
