Decanted for 4 hours, this wine needs it. Mature red cherry and mushrooms. Great wine in a great place, if decanted with enough time

Great surprise! In early stage but great to drink now. I would decant it for a couple of hours.

Unbalanced, flat and overwhelmingly high alcohol. Very different to the Martinelli I know.

Unidimensional, lacks depth. Just not for me, but my wife did like it....

Got it at Club del Gourmet in Mexico. Past its time, a crianza that did not age well.

Shows potential, but still tight, early ages of maturity even after decanting. I would wait a couple of years.

A very pleasant surprise. Mature bordeaux blend. Beautiful wine at it's late peak. It should be consumed soon.

I tried this wine a few years ago and I remember it to be better structured. I was expecting more as it has aged. I am disappointed the way it has evolved. Should try it again in the near future to see if it was the bottle in particular or the wine.

Good but not great. I was expecting more, it lacks depth and complication, just a good wine.

This wine is in it's perfect place. Enough aging to make it come together, still with nice fruit and well balanced. Typical RRV with red fruits.

The cork disintegrated when I opened it. The wine started with a nice nose and good palate, but after a while it changed to a funky aftertaste. I hope the rest are not like this one.

Really good structure. Still developing, it has all to become a forest wine but it's too young to drink. Probably by 2015 to 2017.

Decided to try even though I should know better. Still too tight to enjoy, needs at least two years to reach it's prime. It should be ready starting in 2014.

Not really what my experience with Beaux Freres has been. I am not sure it was a bad bottle or this wine just doesn't age well. I still have another bottle and I am sure I'll find out.

What a spectacular wine, this is what Rh^one whites are all about. Multidimensional long lasting palate.

Very typical Rioja wine, smooth and mature with a nice balance. Very drinkable now but should be consumed within a year.

A very average wine. Flat one dimensional old Riojano. I probably should have drank this ten years ago, definitely not worth waiting.

Está en el momento adecuado, pero requiere decantarlo por lo menos por 3 horas. Un poco dulce, pero excelente maridaje para mole poblano con filete. Una sorpresa lo bien que se ha comportado con los años.

An average table wine not intended for aging. I am sorry I waited, it is completely past it's time.

Typical Ribera del Duero, great depth and body, still will hold several years but could be drank now. a classic Spanish wine, just as I like them.

A good California PN. Not really my style... Did my palate change or this wine is not aging as I expected?

Age has treated this wine well. Much better than what I remember it form four years ago. Ready to drink and easy to enjoy.

Great Zin, very well balanced even though it's 15.8%. Ready to drink now and probably will hold for another 3 years.
It paired great with with BBQ/Agave chicken. I bought this in Napa a few years ago and stored it patiently until now. A very nice and unexpected surprise.

I am not sure if the wine is spoiled or it's just old bad wine. What happens with bad wine and age is that it only gets worse.

Light color. In it's early stages of past maturity. I need to drink this in the next couple of months.

Very young Bordeaux, early stages of maturity, but mature enough to drink it now. Decanted for one hour. Nice nose and long palate, smooth St. Julien. Great wine!
