This is a good bottle. Complex truffle, earthiness and red fruit. Cedary as it opens counterbalanced by well judged acidity, palpable tannin and length. Best showing yet. Will be wonderful in another 5 years.
Decanted for 1/2 hour. Drank through the night. Well, well, well. Young ruby color. A sweet perfume of cherry fruit that envelops the nose. Food friendly acidity with soft tannin. Light to medium body. Coats the mouth with a smooth cherry and rich chocolate finish. Good length. Outstanding nose. Overall, an excellent 1999.
Okay, it got even better on the second day. The acidity has mellow out and the nose has improved even further. Cedar and sour cherry. A well structured and harmonious wine. Overall outstanding. 91 points. I am not sure why it cost 130 on some website. I got it for more than half that price.
