  • Drank last nite with the Friedmans. Slight bricking/starting to show its age. Pretty aromas of coffee and tobacco. Medium bodied, still showing nice amount of black fruit--black cherries and black currants--along with coffee, some forest floor and tobacco. This wine has held up in excellent fashion and goes without saying what a bargain it was when bought upon release.

  • Really good, surprisingly so. A classic claret bouquet, quite fresh and earthy. Amazingly, this QPR Rightie seems a lot like a mature Pichon Lalande. Good density it's fairly mouth filling.

  • On the nose a bit sweet, spicy. On the tongue, a touch bitter (another bell pepper flavor for me). Dry and a little alcoholic. Went surprisingly well with some cheese (gruyere) and even better with mango (wine took on a chocolate flavor).

  • Coravin 6/3/15: Deep ruby color with minimal bricking appropriate for its age; nose has high intensity, complex aromas with blackberry, blackcurrant (ripe but not overripe), some sweet asian spices, even a slight rustic meaty component like northern rhone wines; palate is medium-full bodied, red cherry fruit that persists through most of the midpalate, tannins well integrated but also a bit drying; finish is medium length and some red fruit. This is similar to when I tried it at the end of 2013, though perhaps even more complex on the nose and still just as balanced on the palate. Not a world-class wine, but a fantastic value bordeaux and certainly worth the $20 and 15 years cellar time. I'm sorry this is my last bottle...this would have gone another few years. 90-91
    Update: With air, the palate picks up a bit of black fruit as well, the nose picks up a little tobacco. The asian spices on the nose really remind me of a Pomerol. Very, very nice. Solid 91+.
    6/15/15: Just a half-step behind when it was first opened. Still has that great spice and complexity on the nose, lacking just a bit of complexity on the palate. An excellent wine. 90-91

  • This wine took the full 15 years - 12 or so in my possession, to justify my decision to buy it as a future. Expressive nose, bright red fruits with cherry and plum, no bricking. Bright clear flavors with no muddy earthy flavors and no Bordeaux bandaid.
