  • PnP. Very good bottle this time around. Beautiful aromas of a mature claret. Sweet and smooth tannins. No excess alcohol or acidity, excellent balance. Strong burnt tobacco aftertaste. A bottle like this could easily last another 10 years, no hurry to drink but doubt it will improve from here. Yum! (A)

  • Purchased off the wine list at the Post Hotel and decanted 45 minutes prior to our arrival. Dark garnet hue with surprisingly little bricking at the edges. Nose initially revealed cedar and tobacco notes but later gained additional complexity, showing scents of mountain floral notes, cassis, red currant, earth, and leather. At 90 minutes in, the palate exhibited elegant layers of buoyant, sweet red currant fruit, plum, cherry, and mulberry laced with massaging tannins and carried gently forward by low to moderate acidity. Long finish of leather, red fruit, grip, and earth. Never thought I would use "comfort food" as a way to describe a wine, but this just warmed out hearts.

  • Not as good as previous bottles, a tad bretty. Slightly drying tannins. Strong burnt tobacco finish.

  • My impressions of this bottle mirror those I recorded 8/22/14. Drinking/sharing this wine was a real pleasure. Ahhh, to be a big Lotto winner so I might drink such wines as daily drinkers...
