Saturday, October 27, 2012 - Had it at a classic years vertical tasting of this wine ('82, '03, '05, and the famous 100 pt. '09), but I liked this one the most of the bunch!!
Very deep and barely ready to drink, deep purple color with subdued earthy/terroir and subdued spiciness on the nose. Deep dark fruit flavors with very rich complex terroir and just the right spiciness showing nice balance, integration, and complexity on the palate.
Most satisfying and will probably go well with a variety of dishes, from various casseroles, to baked and even pan-grilled meats.
Very, very delicious . . . and will have to get me some . . .
