  • This one wasn't as musty out of the gate as some bottles I 've had, and came around beautifully in 30 minutes. Loads of black fruits with some dried herbs. Smooth and 20+ second finish.

  • Excellent fill and solid cork. Plenty of funk on the bottle for the first hour of decanting. Once it fully blew off, there was only muted black fruits remaining. On the palate this wine was silky smooth but a little flat compared to other bottles I've had of this wine.

  • High neck fill. No sign of age on this bottle. It took nearly 2 hours to fully open and even then it seemed like it was still in a bit of dumb phase. Almost creamy vanilla Oak with black cherries. Smooth as silk but a real mouthful. I've got a couple more of these and am tempted to let them sit for another couple years before I come back to them as I get the feeling the wine still has yet to fully bloom.

  • Less funk and more mint, mushrooms and black truffles than other bottle I recently consumed, but some dried dark fruit that is very understated in its sweetness.

  • The fill was into the neck, the cork soaked 2/3 of the way but solid. Color showed only modest signs of age. Still a dark plum to core. This bottle was spectacular, evolving in the glass over a couple hours but never dropping off. Upon first opening, tobacco, black currant and cedar dominated. After an hour, black cherry, some hard leather and menthol appeared. After a couple hours it was a blend of all three. The wine was smooth but the tannins were still very firm underneath. 30 second finish. A real mouthful and a great experience.
