In the glass this was a deep Garnet-Amber-Brown but a bit less opaque than the '43 (see other TN I posted). The nose here was starting to show signs of oxidation but nothing substantial, earthy wet leather, an odd citrus note and ginger. I wasn't writing any notes while drinking this came but it across to me as an earthy caramel, black cherry and dried figs. Again, freak'n amazing and well beyond the need to be scored.

(DRC Romanee Conti) had this lime and the coconut thing happening at first but settled down to more classic nut, brown sugar and that kiss of sherry maturity that was still just right. Great tobacco, citrus and earth flavors rounded out this rare and righteous RC
