Community Tasting Note

  • Eric wrote: 95 points

    September 7, 2013 - Consumed one night after a 1990 Pichon Baron, and these were kissing cousins. At first the Orny was all stalk and stem and tobacco with a full yet acidic palate. However over the course of 90 minutes it exploded and became both more ripe and more vegetal. BTW, I mean vegetal as a compliment -- herbal and stalky in the best way. Undeniably 1997. Quite approachable yet with ample silky tannins. Truly delicious.
