  • Drinks so well. Earthy, touch of VA, very structured but at the same time without any angular notes. Not as big as some vintages.

  • Two grumpy old men become little less grumpy in Tokyo (Antichi Sapori, Hiroo (Tokyo)): Long decant = fabulous showing, finally at its early plateau.

    Light red with some mature signage.
    Nose: very stylish, cherries and many fine things.
    Palate: Rock'n'roll! This is a very elegant and stylish medium-bodied wine in its early prime time. All things in place, integrated and in perfect harmony. M++ tannins, M+ acids, long with aromas that would make this wine incredibly difficult in a blind tasting. My guess would probably have been a semi-mature Madiran...

    Five btls to go with this brilliant juice. Next one circa 2020. Keepers will be rewarded.
    At Antichi Sapori in Hiroo (Tokyo)

  • Camphor and prune on the nose. On the palate, red berries, prune, and ash, with strong drying tannins and savory spices on the medium to long finish. This is drinkable now, but it will hold and probably improve for many years yet. Excellent value for the money at about $30.

  • This is only improving with time, I'll wait another few years on my last bottle.

  • Perfect little bottle had with dinner tonight at Capital Grille Ft Worth. I have read recent reviews of this wine that said that it took forever to open up, etc. I did have that problem with this bottle even though it was decanted, but the wine was already displaying some good notes of age even in its youth. Decanted and served at the restaurant. Nose was a little earthy and aged, dirty raspberry with a hint of chocolate. A little bit of floral. The entry was raspberry and baker's chocolate, mild to moderate acidity. The mid-palate was softer than I imagined it was going to be with great fruit that carried the middle, and was showing a tiny hint of age. The finish was a little tannic, but had really mellowed out after 90 minutes of decanting in a decanter. Still has quite a bit of life left in it I believe, but showed well tonight and was a very good complement to both steak and rare ahi tuna steak. I think the 2014-2029 window is correct on this one.
