Rich, powerhouse.... Reached out and slapped me across the face... I smiled..... Black fruits, smoke and some earth.... Enjoyed with short ribs, poached eggs. Accompanied by stuffed piquillos.

Citrus, honey, well balanced Chardonnay. I bit too much oak for my guests' palate. Overall a decent wine. Better with richer foods.

Drank from magnum. Significant seepage, but didnt seem to affect the flavor greatly. Big fruity flavors, some smoke. Good (but not great) overall with spicy flavors of food.

Took an hour for barnyard to dissipate. Decanted for three hours. Great nose....Currants, licorice, leather. Medium body. Bordeaux like. Still holding up well after 18 years, but drink up soon.

Aromas of currants and blueberry. Decanted for 1 hour. (Could have used longer decanting) Rich chocolate, blueberry, some spice and graphite notes. Exceptional value on an a 18+ year old wine.
