  • Popped and poured tonite after grabbing indiscriminately from the cellar. Garnet in color & showing its age, nose of earth, some strawberries & funk. Light bodied, still a bit of fruit here, but mostly of earth and minerals. Much more pleasant than expected, but clearly past its prime.

  • Decanted about 1 hour, soft elegant aromatics of floral and minerals, body quite thin, some bricking, very soft tannins. This bottle is likely past its peak but still a pleasure to drink.

  • Garnet red, started with smoky/peppery nose that developed more ripe strawberry, red rose, ripe vine tomato and molasses with time in the glass. Light body, with fine tannins and good balance. Surprisingly long length. Considering this is an off vintage, it gave considerable pleasure, and was a relative bargain. At its peak. Excellent, 89.

  • Opened five hours in advance and decanted. This was important, since the opening tastes were a bit green and herbacious. Five hours later the wine had rounded nicely - although it is still not a powerful wine, but the tannins had loosened their grip, and nice fruit, not jammy, but light red fruits, were present. Time to drink this up

  • Started off a bit rough with tail ends of plummy fruit hanging on a rough, floppy structure. Pulled together in the glass and even more after several hours in the bottle. Lovely pencil lead, tobacco and lined-out fruit. Nice depth and structure. Medium finish with persistent mineral/graphite and earth. Ended up a really pretty bottle of wine that way exceeded the vintage.
