This bottle was starting to show some signs of premox, but it hadn't totally taken over yet.

This didn't open up much despite being in decanter for a couple of hours. Chalky tannins. I'll wait another 5 years.

Drank over 2 days. Clearly needs some time but is very nice and approachable after a little air.

Excellent. Lemon peel and great acidity and precision. Served blind and no one pegged it as CA.

Very nice, but shows the extra warmth and ripeness over the regular Alpine bottling which was stunning alongside this. Black licorice and a slight touch of heat on the back end .
