did not have time to decant and pop. this is in a good place now and was smooth and balanced and top notch. sure it can get a bit better but if every wine was as god as this one my wine drinking would be much easier. great bottle enjoyed and agreed to by all 6 at dinner. beat the Mayacamus

TURNED 72 +27 (72 BACJWARDS) 99 BUT IN TRUTH THIS WAS AS GOOD AS A BOTTLE CAN BE IN EVERY RESPECT. I AM A SAXUM FAN FOR A DECADE BUT THIS IS PERHAPS AS GOOD AS CAN BE MADE BY THEM. SO FROM A BIASED FAN THIS IS SPECTACULAR

gave it also 30 minutes and tasted and ohhhhhhhhhhhh!! this is a very nice bottle in a great place. seems well balanced and smooth. not one that tastes this and than but I do know well what I like and I like this. I do not think this will disappoint anyone who has it and while I buy from law yearly I will certainly go heavier on the intrepid.

had a bottle at a restaurant and loved it so bought some from the winery. there is still time on the drinking window - the wine is balanced and smooth and for me no bitter after taste, it drinks great now ..I may be an easy "scorer" by this wine is certainly a 91-92+ right now

all who were at the restaurant with me raved as well
