  • Holding up very well. Nice acid. Some tannins. Nice nose. One wonders if the current Raymond's would hold up as well.

  • Another pleasant surprise - this wine held up and is drinking better than ever. Still had some drying tannins which suggest it could go on for a while but what a joy to drink now. Yum.

  • Bought this 10-ish years ago. Maybe it was even a gift, but either way, I have had it for a long time. Mediocre producer, bad year, but wine has developed into a very good to excellent wine. Popped, decanted and poured and followed for three hours. Kept getting better with the air. When I opened it, I thought it was going to end up as an 85 point OK wine, nothing special but not bad. However, as it got a chance to gain some air, it gradually developed some very nice dark red fruits with nice dark cherry. There is still a bit of unresolved tannin, even after 16 years. Color is dark with no bricking. Wood referenced in other CT reviews is almost all gone, with just a tiny bit of a mix of cedar and oak. Finish is soft but long. Nose is subdued.

    I opened this with the expectation that it would either be a pleasant surprise or I would write a note that started with "what possessed me to buy this?" The result is door number one.

  • Unfortunately opened and poured into plastic cups, which greatly detracted from the ability to take a proper reading. This wine seemed very mature and neutral, both olfactory and taste-wise. Notes of plum and black cherry. Decent structure, resolved tannins - enjoyable without any noticeable flaws.

  • Consumed the last one of 6, not much improvement, and I'd certainly drink up.
    It still had ample fruit and the oak was getting sweeter tasting.
