90's Burgs, TBA's, Madeiras and a Sherry (John V.'s): Purchased by me a few years after release. Pretty consistent with prior bottles. Ruby in color. The nose has cherries and a bit of celery. It is still youngish on the palate with good cherry fruit, but lacking in depth. I wonder if this ever really develops further. Still, I would not have guessed how old it was if drinking blind. Got a couple WOTF votes.
Gorgeous wine. Striking in the purity of its expression. red fruit, fine fine tannins that are well integrated, a compelling complexity of aroma and flavor. The wine is pungent and intense, and also finessed and seemingly weightless. Swoon worthy.
