too early to drink imo but still very enjoyable. about 93 so far, could go up if it becomes more refined with time. drank somewhere between Grand Cayman and Jamaica, ocean enriched atmosphere added to the nose as compared to on dry land.

Tried at Le Bernardin @ Night of Perrarus dinner
The nose was intoxicating and if I could consume this wine by inhaling only, I would. I think it's a bit early to drink and can't wait to try it again in a decade. It is a legendary wine. It is a blend of all three stones, the finest of each, and you can tell if you've had all 3 '15 stones before.
Will update my note later some more

way too early with this one... lay it down and forget for a good while...
improved significantly over 6 hrs in decanter. great potential here but we need to be patient with this.

2 hr decant. probably should wait another 3-5 yrs on this. Outstanding right out of the gate (after a 2 hr decant). well balanced. terrific wine!

decanted 2 hrs before the event, about an hr later it was phenomenal, became one of the favorites out of 6 different bottles. Leave your bottle alone for another 5 yrs at this point. I might have to buy another bottle somewhere else just to try it in 5 yrs again. With alot of '13 being in a closed down phase this yr, it's a good idea to wait on this one!

opened a half bottle. lot's of cherry and fruit. after being in a decanter for no more than 30 mins began to smooth out. Can probably use at least an hr in decanter. we liked it but too much fruit for our liking on the finish

was corked unfortunately, 3 hrs decant revealed this - all 12 people at blind tasting agreed it was corked.

Tasted 2012 BONDs (horizontal) at Angler then Harlan: '14 '04 '13 '03 and '96 Harlan with dinner at Saison

The 2013 is in a closed down phase, needs time to come out of it.
