After the oxidised bottle, it was a relief to have a clean wine, dark, nice velvetty texture, but the palate was muddy and indistinct and it tightened up as the night went on - disappointing. I've a nasty feeling these have gone from dumb to over the hill without flowering in between.
WIML90 Tasted at the Dallas Offline January 16th at Il Sole. Quick notes only. Good, clear garnet color. A little bit of a subdued nose. Probably could use some decanting or more time in bottle. Mild cherries with a hint white pepper. Just a little brett in this Burgundy. Good balance of tannins and acidity. 90 WIML points. Could go higher with more time in bottle. I think WS rated this wine around 86-87 points with a drinking window that has already passed. They blew it on this one.
