Community Tasting Notes (33) Avg Score: 92.0 points

  • Still kicking after all these years. The fruit was quite diminished but there remained interesting notes of herbs and white pepper. thin upon opening...I hadn't planned to serve it and it was pop and pour from the cellar. As it warmed and opened it took on weight and was very pleasurable.

  • Drank with my beautiful bride to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Brought up from the 58 degree cellar, opened and tasted and then decanted for over an hour and a half. It was OK, but not spectacular. Medium weight and color, better suited for pork than the rib eye from the grill. Actually was wondering if I had decanted too long. Then took outside with dinner to enjoy into cooler night air and as temp dropped slightly, the wine came alive. Roasted meat and mid-palate depth unfolded, the nose opened and the wine began showing its full potential. Lesson learned with vintage wine, open, try, be patient, change temp settings and find optimal time to enjoy. This wine waited 25 years to be opened. We can't always be in a rush to drink in an hour or two. Patience will be rewarded. In both relationships and wine:)

  • Opened by Allred. No formal notes as this was one of the last wines of the night. 91 points.

  • Opened by Allred at gourmet group. Showing some age with bricking. Red fruits and pepper (white) on a dusty finish. Paired nicely with the venison.

  • A pristine bottle carefully cellared since release, this was decanted off its sediment and served. Garnet core with some bricking. Aroma of white pepper dominates, with herbs and red currants underneath. Medium-bodied and fully-integrated, with flavors of white and red currants, pepper and bacon fat. Finishes well, with herb and red fruit qualities. At peak, drink over the next year, maybe two.
