I honestly don't know where to start with this wine...

First off, I purchased three of these through the PLCB sale back in the summer at 33 dollars a piece. Yes, 33 dollars. I'm usually skeptical with the PLCB as I've had some bad experiences with their "Chairman's Selections" with wines being skunked. This was not the case at all.

This is a truly beautiful wine. It opened up with a very Amarone-like nose. Raisins, Earth, chocolate, dark cherry. After the first hour, I got hints of truffle as well. The mouthfeel was incredibly sexy with a beautiful integration of oak and dark fruit. The finish lasted 45 seconds to a minute with pure delicious fruit. This wine could go for another 7-10 years but this was the perfect time to open it. I drank this with a squid-ink infused rigatoni with crispy fried squid in a cream sauce with pickled cherry peppers I have two more in the cellar and plan on opening them in 3 and 5 years.

I give it a solid 95. I've been drinking wine for 7 years (I'm 28) and this is without a doubt my most memorable bottle. I was fortunate enough to drink it with the person who got me into wine, my father.
