very dark, too much oxidation for my taste, though it brightened up a bit with an hours air and there was just enough acid to make it drinkable... some of our friends liked it a lot but not my cup o tea
From an excellent looking bottle with a 2 cm fill, this wine had a deep yellow center and clear rims. The medium intensity nose offered up baguette, vanilla, white stone, and lemon.
As usual, this wine took 4+ hours to show its best. It had plenty of power and richness but it also had crisp acidity and excellent length. This wine had enough power and complexity to score 94 points but was held back by a touch of excess oak.
This wine is just in the middle of its drinking window. It has 10 more years of enjoyability ahead.
From an excellent looking bottle, this wine had a deep yellow center and clear rims. This wine was quite tight for the first hour or so, to the point where it seemed like it might be flawed. Yet 3 hours latter, the medium+ intensity nose showed vanilla, apples, lemons, and some white stone.
In the mouth, this wine was rich and ripe with crisp acidity and great length. Its balance was perfect.
This wine is right in the zone. While it will easily last for 5-10 years, I doubt it will get better.
