Saturday, December 15, 2012 - Very very enjoyable. Cedar nose, with some ash and tobacco with air. Needs 2-3hr decant, after which becomes darker, quite full bodied and very rich. Great value and will improve further, this is not at peak maturity. Denser (and perhaps with even better potential) than the 1985, which is also excellent. Drink 2015-2030. My case seems badly stored, cork was crumble, although no signs of leaks... Had this bottle at Cipriani. Get more!!!
