Impressive! Bordeaux like in every way. 20 years young and I bet it could go another decade. Smooth velvety aged with plenty of fruit and lucious red opulence. The cork was perfect. This beautiful blended CAB was designed to last a lifetime.
I have had this wine stored in my vinotech since I bought it in 1999 from a restaurant. I cannot believe how good it still tastes. Velvety on the tongue, lots of fruit and lots of flavor. It had that musty old Bordeaux taste and smell that I love so much as well. Definitely one of the best wines ever made.
I tasted this years ago upon release...it started out huge, with tons of dark fruit, cassis, leather, and strong hints of vanilla/oak.. then it just blossomed in the glass and changed (favorably) with each sip...a unique experience, and an amazing example of a wine needing time and showing its potential....so I'm excited to see how it's developed with bottle age and look forward to drinking it soon with the '94 &'95 laying next to it!
