Aarrrrgh! Last bottle (#10,546) of this beauty....a bittersweet moment. Still youthful at 17 years old. Very minor bricking, and a bit of old Cab must, but perfectly integrated and balanced. Still has plenty of fruit. Eucalyptus, mint and some charred meat come through on the nose. Could be another 10 years of life for anyone lucky enough to have more.
Spectacular. Bottle #55 of 60. Nothing huge or overstated in this bottle. Floral, mossy nose. Lovely dark fruit gives way to a smooth, well-balanced mid-palate, and a long, long finish that is beautifully integrated and suggestive of 10-15 more years of quality drinking.
