Friday, September 14, 2012 - The most disappointing bottle of this I’ve had. Lots of brett on the nose, off-putting and I’m usually rather tolerant to brett. Later this turned to more iodine, iron/blood character, but just wasn’t doing it for me. Palate was cleaner, a bit of spice with a red cherry pit character. Course tannins and a moderate length finish with sandalwood. Still had good poise and polish for the vintage. A more nuanced wine, seemed thin on the palate compared to the Janasse. I still love this as a wine to drink while waiting on other years, but this bottle was not at good as previous. Not from my stash, so hopefully not representative of where this is going.
