Probably the 5th time I have had this vintage. Tonight it lived up to its 98 point Parker score. I had with Mexican food, so certainly not the atmosphere making it better. Dark cherry, full bodied, with long tannins. I believe I have been drinking this too early.
For my Dad on his 80th. Soft, feminine, Bordeaux style that is as smooth as it gets. Tannins have receded giving way to plum/cherry and mild leather notes. Not as impressive as I was expecting. 3 bottles left so maybe a few years more will improve it.
