  • Cedery leather-current, full body, fine tannins, underlying rustic/mushroom. Beautiful w/ a NY Strip. Cellered at 56F since purchase at release, decanted 1hr, and drunk over an hour at 62F. 2 more from the original case remain, for the next 12 mos. Delicious.

  • Started out nicely but became very herbaceous as it opened up and lost its attractiveness. My last bottle. Wouldn't wait any longer on this.

  • Fill into neck. Perfect capsule and cork. Decanted 15 minutes before tasting. Clear deep dark garnet, lightening at the rim. Outstanding bouquet of currant and blackberry jam and liqueur, mocha, toast, oak, nutmeg and cloves. Confirmed on the palate, with great purity, extract, and power. Alcohol was more noticeable than I would like -- perhaps the serving temperature was a few degrees too high. And the tannins seemed a bit rustic. This was a superb wine, improving throughout the evening, and showing no signs of tiring. Glad I have one more bottle.

  • A 92 rating for a large format 1992. Plenty of strength left in this winner. Stone fruit, graphite, and leather predominated with a full lush mouth feel.
