Sunday, December 5, 2010 - This is just ridiculously good. It was pretty but quite tight when first opened, but over the course of an hour just kept getting better and better. This is classic old school Pauillac backed up by an extra level of richness and intensity, and is just beginning to hit its stride.
Beautiful aromatics of beeswax, cigar box and dark berries/cherries give way to an amazing palette, with waves of fruit, cedar and mushroom/forest floor. It somehow manages to be full-bodied but not heavy, all at the same time. The finish just goes on forever.
