Perfectly stored bottle, pnp and served to my tasting group. Everybody agree this bottle of wine is signing right now and probably will be for the next 5 years. Classic Pauillac nose and flavor profile.

Still dark dense and obscure body. Love the minerality and dark fruit profile of this wine. Polished finish. Still young and many years of life ahead on this delicious wine.

Opened yesterday at home and at first note those green bell pepper tones charasteristic from South American Cab wine. Sip two glasses and put it away until today. Boom!!! This wine is in another dimension. Balance eith great acidity and tannins, beautiful left bank bouquet with some green note but in a good way. Nice finish.

Drinking perfectly right now. Pop and pour yesterday and the bouquet from the bottle was intoxicating. Espresso, leather, forest floor, mushroom. Mid palate balanced with pretty decent aftertaste.

I concur with some early note above. Open up and drank over 3 hours period half a bottle. Red fruit notes and herbal and eucalyptus. Note nice evolution of the wine for the period of time tasting it. Still have 5-10 years ahead of live. Love what I tasted and I will buy more if I can.

IMHO I think this is an underrated vintage for this cuvée. Right now in optimal drinking window with beautiful nose of tropical fruits and butterscotch. Nice texture and balance. I will not hold for too much more years so I will drink all I have in my collection.

Tasted today with a prime rib meal. At first the nose was close for business. Ripe fruit and sweet tanins. Good structure for the long haul but I should wait 2-3 years for retaste. Not for me right now.

Garnet red body with readily open nose of red and black fruit, currant, cedar and tobacco. Just a note high on alcohol but reaching balance with acid and tannins. Medium to long finish.

Since opened a perfume nose, lively with secondary and terciary notes. Still some fruit present. In the palate ver round, tannins resolve, still good acidity. Innthe midpalate very present and a long finish. This is a bang for the buck. I just buy it a case from a very well preserve collection.

Very open nose of mint and macademia nuts(?). Nice acidity and power. Its finness and robust at the same time. Lovely wine that invite you to eat.

No había probado esta añada de este gran vino y lo hice ayer. Que exquisites!!!! Debidamente arreado rápidamente expresa una gran bouquet de fruta negra, roja, regaliz y vainilla. En boca cremoso, taninos maduros, gran acidez y mucho alcohol. Los críticos le dan 5 años de vida a este gran vino pero mi opinión es que tendrá mucho mas vida que eso aunque si quieres disfrutarlo ahora así lo puedes hacer. Ademas el precio es otro gran atributo de esta joya. Altamente recomendado. Salud!!!!

Had this wine yesterday night at Santaella Rest. Dark inky body with open nose with aromas of dark fruit, wild flower and oakiness. In palate I don't fell the acidness and tannin that I expect. It fell more on the sweet side. No sweetness like in a dessert wine. Short caudalice. I think this is an overprice wine.

Cherry red body, translucent. Aromas of rasberry, sour cherry and earthy notes. Tannins and acid in check but somehow very light body. I was expecting more of this wine considering the excellent year. Maybe in the downside. Drink now.

Violeta en copa, denso y obscuro. Aromas de fruta roja obscura, vainilla y cuero. Excelente estructura y bien balanceado. Tanino sedoso. Postgusto largo. El vino es muy joven con mucha fruta dominando los sabores secundarios y terciarios pero con gran potencial de envejecimiento. Lo mejor es el precio: $35.00-$40.00.

Amarillo intenso y brillante en copa, transparente. Excelente carga floral, especias con destellos de mineralidad, melocotón y manzana verde. Sedoso y cremoso en boca con buena carga ácida pero con esa mezcla dulce que distingue esta uva. Postgusto mediano. Excelente para parearlo con crustáceos o suchi. Año 2009.
