    January 8, 2022 - First time in 3 years I opened a 375. Poured a small bit to taste and then let it sit for two hours, then slowly drank over an hour and a half. A really nice bottle of wine. Dark berries, cherries, tobacco and licorice. A long enjoyable finish

    December 24, 2021 - 2007: Dark red with thin garnet edge. Dark red cherry and a little sour cherry, cinnamon, and some oxidation in the first whiff. In the mouth it is medium+ body has cocoa, cinnamon, cherry raspberry in an athletic frame - so vivacious. Vanilla and tannin shows a bit in the end, and it is a long ending. Beautiful.
    2008: Dark red. Clean, raspberry, cherry nose. The palate is pure fruit with a mineral and tannic streak. Only medium body, a little boney tannin. Let me decant this.... now it shows more aromatics in the mouth but remains rather strict when compared to the 2007 Tig.

    December 1, 2021 - Dark ruby color turning brick orange at the rim with a transparent edge. The nose gives off perfumed floral notes of red and black fruits with smoky vanilla on toasted oak. The palate is delicately soft on a medium body with bright acidity to balance the red and black cherry fruits that holds through the long, edgeless finish with secondary flavors of espresso, vanilla and scorched earth. Drink now until 2028. 94+

    August 14, 2021 - Just an incredible wine, now hitting stride; lots of development since my last bottle back to in 2013. Stood up and then decanted for approximately 45 minutes before enjoying with a Tuscan spice crusted, grilled pork loin with grilled peppers, Brussel sprouts, tomatoes, and whole mushrooms. Deep, dark ruby color. Advanced signs of development and early maturity: roasted bell pepper and celery, powdered chocolate, worn leather, leafy tobacco, spicy red currant, crushed blackberry, ripe black cherry, black plum with a dose of dry, black earth throughout. Tannins have long since integrated with fruits and acids creating complete and perfect balance. Long finish and worked perfectly with the food. Glad I held back a couple of bottles as this should drink well for another 4-6 years. Outstanding. The 2016, I enjoyed a couple of months back was also incredible, but at neatly 13 years, this was equally great but with some ageā€¦just displays the longevity of this brand.
