This bottle was cork tainted. Strong chlorine smell.

Very drinkable with good overall balance and structure, but did not blow me away quite as much as when tasted in October at the tasting room. Perhaps my palate was off or there was some bottle variation, I'm not really sure.

Still in quite good shape with wonderfully aromatic vanilla/strawberry nose and some bright cherry on the palate to go with a smooth baking spice and vanilla finish.

Bright citrus notes and solid body/mouth feel. Wonderful pairing with halibut.

Drinkworthy at opening, but fell flat fairly quickly.

Not in the greatest of shape. Fruit is disappearing a bit.
White

Amazing. Golden yellow color, bright acid up front through the middle. Intense but rounded (vs sharp) lemon notes with some tropical fruits underneath.
Nose was rich and heady, lemon with light notes of white flowers and white cake.

Notably dark in color but not oxidized or over the hill. Fresh, easy drink. Medium body and well integrated hints of lemon with a robust profile. This must see oak, as far as I can tell from the structure and richness. An interesting wine from a producer I know (but style I'm less familiar with).

Very smooth and easy drinking. Probably a tad past it's prime though. Let it stand up for a bit before pouring so sediment settles to the bottom.

Drank from magnum, delicious throughout.

Initially this didn't show much, but I think it needed to warm up a bit from cellar temp and then get some air. Eventually expressed very nice fruit and overall balance, especially considering 2011 was a somewhat colder year. Very glad this was still viable, I thought I had held it too long. Drink now.

Smooth, well integrated. Stand up before opening to settle out fine sediment; I believe the producer does minimal filtering or fining.

Corked... will try to get that replaced from the disty.

Delightful, though it does lose its bubbles fairly quickly once in the glass.

Smooth, integrated. Beautiful medium/dark red/blue fruit and a complex forest floor nose with hints of eucalyptus (as any good Priorat should have). Decent tannic structure and soft tannins with an integrated acid structure that holds for a pleasantly long finish.

Tasted multiple times from Coravin, not quite coming together the way I'd hoped it would show.

A bit overly sweet, but still good for what it is. Good quality and value overall, just not my exact speed I think.

Big and brutalist... took a while to recalibrate my palate for what this is. Not it's fault; I just wasn't ready.

No complaints. Subtle, refined, still very much worth enjoying.

Needed a good hour and some help from the vinturi to open up, but was wonderfully complex and interesting once it did.

Tasted like plastic or something. No idea.

Beautiful dark fruit, spice, decent acid. This one is still alive, Jim.

Getting quite old. Enjoyable palate of bright red fruit and spices, but the finish lacks.

Dark smoky notes and decent fruit. Still alive, surprisingly.

Okay, not dead. But not sure this was a great year. Some fruit, but green notes are a bit off-putting.

Surprisingly fresh. Bright medium red fruit.

Past it's prime, but some nice notes of spice and chocolate. Better than the 2005 tasted next to it.

Thinning, over the hill, even though tasted from magnum (that was my expectation though).

Still balanced, but just muted as it fades away. Nice winemaking though, this was likely much better when I bought it.

Doing fine, but won't improve from here.

Tolerable, but past peak. Low acid makes this not as good as it probably was before.
