    January 18, 2018 - WineBid Tasting Event (Mandarin Oriental): Much more vibrant than the two Phelps we had before (one from 70's, one from 80's). This is piles of black fruits and something else that is a bit tough to make out in my notes. Wine was in a good spot. Very tasty.

    January 18, 2018 - Had at a spectacular WINEBID.com tasting event. Total of 39 wines tasted with an unbelievable lineup ! Bravo to Sterling Roig.

    Drank from a magnum. Wildly berry laiden fruit. Much more aromatic than the 94' but not quite as melancholy as that one. More forward and aggressive. I loved this wine.

    September 29, 2015 - wonderful wine that took a couple of hours to truly show it's colors and flavor. First 30-45 minutes the wine was brittle and light but with a stunning nose of great things to come. Every 30 minutes following opened more and more of a beautiful bouquet of floral, earth, and light chocolate tones to the tongue. Medium finish. Very satisifying with short rib and a chocolate puff pastry for dessert.
