Started to really show after about 90 minutes in the decanter. This is a show stopper wine that I felt mixed a nice fruit filled nose with a smooth flavorful taste. This wine was elegant and well put together with years of aging left in it. Drink now to 2020
Needs an hour in decanter. Really opens up to a balanced and elegant wine. Soft edges rounded with dark fruits and a loamy nose preceding a solid finish. Should have several more years ahead but my recommendation is to open one soon if you have multiple bottles in order to establish a baseline experience then go from there.
Outstanding!! This is a blockbuster to me. Just blew my mind. I'm not sure where to start. Dark purple in color so opaque you can't see a thing through the abyss. Black cherry, currants & licorice. Perfectly rounded and has a layers of finish that I've never encountered before like this. The finish was ridiculous (as in amazing) & I couldn't believe that I passed on a vertical of this. I have 4 more 07s but scoffed at the opportunity to buy the 05, 06 & 08. Stupid me. It is a blockbuster that needs to be tried. This will easily evolve for a decade but I like them young so I have no problem drinking mine over the next few years.
Slightly less fruit than last time, but excellent balance and integration. Smooth flavor, no heat, and plenty of dark fruit to this wine, both on the nose and the palate. Both guests were equally impressed with the wine.
