  • Bouteille en parfaite condition, bouchon un peu sec qui a cassé au milieu. Into neck. Dégusté un demi verre pour décider si on carafe ou non. Carafé durant 1 heure avant de déguster. Couleur grenat foncé avec quelques nuances orangées de ci de là.
    Le premier nez est toujours un peu poussiéreux et le passage en carafe lui a fait le plus grand bien. Le nez est très bordelais avec beaucoup de notes de fruits noirs, de fumée, de mocca.
    La bouche, elle, est plus californienne, plus chaude, plus ronde, plus épaisse, torréfiée mais sans lourdeur aucune. Le vin montre aussi une certaine complexité, notamment avec une finale très longue et savoureuse.
    Cela faisait presque 3 ans que je n'avais pas bu ce vin et cette bouteille était bien supérieure à la précédente.
    Selon moi, le vin est à pleine maturité et devrait y rester durant 5 à 10 ans encore.

  • What an amazing wine. We enjoyed this last night to celebrate the Supreme Court's marriage equality ruling and it is drinking beautifully right now. Decanted for an hour, it was a bit tight when we first tasted, but after decanting it opened beautifully. It still has plenty of time, but we only had one bottle and the time was right! We are going to get a couple more vintages to enjoy down the line.

  • Nice dark fruits. Not a young wine but still a long ways to go. Fruit was tasty but there wasn't a whole lot of complexity. A mag left and will try to save it for another 10 years.
