Ginsberg and Chan Singapore Steak Supreme (Wooloomooloo Steak House): An outstanding bottle that was piercing like a garnet, a concentration of fruit and integration of alcohol that I have only encountered in 1-2 other bottles, and reminded me of the Artadi El Pison 1995. Subtle undergirth of strength gives this wine presence and approachability. Gorgeous.
Very purple red color. Fairly subtle plum nose. Fairly light on the finish, but long palate of dark berry and plum. Opened up a little more with time. Very elegant. Probably at (or just beyond?) peak. Bought at auction, can't speak to storage although my bottle seems to lack the size others have described.
94 Napa: a 20-year retrospective @ my place (Netherlands): Very primary, deep and dark. Loaded with potential and promise. Black fruit, very floral and luxurious like an expensive perfume. Broad-shouldered and masculine, yet well dressed and very sophiticated. One for the cellar. 96+/100 (group scores 94-99)
