Pnp. Still youthful and kicking. As ready to drink as it can get but still lots of green notes with vanilla.

Not so much life ahead or maybe declining already. Drink up this year.

Only starting a drinking window. At least one hour decanting is necessary.

Not impressed. Expensive kind of wine that doesn't deliver the price tag.

Drinking nicely now, but you can tell it still can go a long way. I'd recommend giving it 6-8 years before opening another bottle

Beautiful blend of sauvignon blanc and furmint. Fresh, but its rich aromas go way beyond the herbs, asparagus and grass of the typical sauvignon blanc. Not so crispy either. Surprisingly smooth on the palate

Very aromatic. Fresh and zesty on the palate. Better than I expected. Great value!

This wine has aged wonderfully. It's full-bodied, aromas of tobacco, leather, black cherry jam. Very persistent. At peak now and it should stay like this for two more years or even longer.

I was quite disappointed with this wine. Well balanced but nothing more. If you have hold your bottle so far, wait more two years and risk it evolving into something interesting...

I bit harsh and alcoholic upon opening but evolves quickly. Not tired with the years yet and even better than last year's bottle. This wine reminds me of a burgundy wine if not for the extraction. Not fruity or oaky and a good QPR.

Rather simple, which makes it terribly overpriced. Smooth and tasty but very superficial.

Evolved well from the last bottle a couple years ago. There isn't much hurry to drink. In a good place now with some decanting if you like bold chilean wines.

90 points for quality and one extra for the QPR. Went very quick and well with cremee brulee.

Not much different from Cobos Cabernet Sauvignon Marchiory Vineyard, also Paul Hobbs but from Argentina, what makes me a little disappointed. It is pleasant, no doubt there, but overpriced.

One of the best bottles of Cartuxa Reserva we've ever had. Lively, smooth and supple on the palate

Great value. Potent, full-bodied, velvety on the palate. Balanced tannins. We popped and poured, so it was a bit alcoholic at first. Might decant it the next time.

This is aging pretty well. At eleven years old it's still very potent and fruity. Very smooth on the palate after one hour decanting

One of the best sparkling wines from South America, with creamy palate, notes of almond, bread and butter. Aged pretty well over the past six years.

The low score on CT is unfair. Very characteristic tuscany wine and very well made.

Much better than last bottle, starting to show tertiary aromas but should improve more, I hope. I will try to stay away from my last bottle for a couple of years.

Still drinking young but already interesting. Dense, tannic and heavy, should peak in a couple years.

A little past peak. Oxidized notes with strong tannins still. It was interesting but downhill from the one drunk two years ago.

Two years after my last bottle and this is still drinking very young. Much better than previously and starting to show potencial to a reviewed score but I will keep the 92 pts for this bottle.
A very dark wine that started to open up after one hour and a half in the decanter. I will try to wait two years more before opening another one.

Good but definitely not worth the price. Pop and pour as it goes away even in the bottle so decanting even for a brief moment should ruin it. Overall a nice new world pinot noir that is terribly overpriced.

Decanted for half an hour. Very good. Becoming less thick but still purple. Hard to tell if it is e evolving but certainly holding well.

Outstanding quality price. Nice minerality, big acidity with some body.
