90+. This was my last bottle - and it did not disappoint. Previous notes indicating chocolate and leather are dead on, with some earth and maybe vanilla / oak nuance. Cherry / raspberry as well - this was well worth the $36 I paid for it back in 2007, and showing great for being 12 years old. Wish I had a couple more ...
Last bottle, better than previous. Nose has lots of berries chocolate and leather. Long finish smooth and blackberry tart cherry coffee. Bought a case at really good price, not sure I would pay full price
Right up front this gets a Whoa. No green pepper but tons of intrigue. Blackberry, cassis, and a hint of vanilla. On the palate this is incredible--balance, fruit, finish. Whoa. 93. thedrunkencyclist.com
Drinking really well. Some Tanin still present, but wine is well balanced overall. A little smoke and dark fruit. 12th anniversary wine. A lot has happened between 2003 and 2015. Wine is good to go now and confident it is good for a few more years if stored well.
