Medium yellow. No amber. Really expressive. Great nose and fruit. A ringer for a grand cru white burg. Aged well.

No oxidation that often happens here. Beautiful gold with all the aromatics and taste you would expect from a great Hermitage.

Elegant lady at maturity. Will do well next few years in magnum. Medium to dark red with Beaune aromatics. Held up well for the evening with a decant.

Nice medium ruby. No amber. Elegant old world style . Really round and delicious. Been stored since release but probably need to drink up.

Deep color no amber. Dark blueberry aromatics. Really yummy in the mouth. Must have significant bit of Merlot planted on Tychson Hill. Very apparent here. Tried to convince myself it was a Pomerol but more Napa in character. Tannins all silky and nice finish. Relatively short drinking window left.

This is what a 100 point wine is all about. Deep ruby with no amber on the edge. Very expressive nose and a beautiful mouthful from start to finish. Tannins resolved but should go another decade.

Bought at release. Fabulous ruby color and amazing Burgundian nose. This is a dead ringer for a grand cru Burgundy from a great year. Like my 1990 Ponsot Griottes- Chambertin used to taste. Red raspberry and forest notes but no funk. Extraordinary. At peak but should hold.
