    December 4, 2021 - From a magnum, sacrificed for the greater common good at our wine club Christmas party. Highly recommend, very good QPR wine and given how extraordinarily well the magnum held up my guess is that with proper cellaring the 750's should still be drinking very well as well. Our only bottle, acquired as part of a much larger cellar acquisition. Nose initially dark and brooding with a hint of funk up front which quickly blew away with aeration leaving well balanced dark fruit, black pepper, a hint of anise / licorice and finally a more floral lilac or violet note. Very smooth, completely integrated and full bodied with a long aftertaste. With proper cellaring in this magnum format this easily has at least another 5-7 years to go - not youthful at this point but fully prime with no hint of degradation or decline. Initial dark fruit gave way to more red fruit / dark cherry with earthier notes of stone, tar, anise, cigar box and leather developing on the mid-late palate. This was just excellent.

    September 4, 2021 - I purchased 2 of these magnums from auction. This is the first.

    Rich red with a ripe in mouth flavor. Large enveloping mouthfeel with cherry, black fruits and vegetable flavors. I get fig on the mid palette and a finish of cedar laden tobacco leaf (a good thing BTW). I loved it.

    June 25, 2021 - Pnp and drank over 90 min. Rather cheap and very 80s like bottle and label design. Unlike the label, the wine is however not showing its age in the glass with a medium garnet almost to the rim. This is showing slightly unbalanced initially, like a Tuscan red from a hot vintage with good acidity but a very ripe profile of dark fruit, clearly the Sangiovese in the blend showing. Later the wine fills out nicely and the Cab becomes much more dominant which provides overall a nicer balance. Very pretty nose with some wood spices and bell peppers indicating that the Cab Sauv (perhaps unlike the Sangio here) was for sure not picked overly ripe. On the palate still plenty of fruit and good acidity but also tobacco and leather, fine to medium tannins and short to medium finish. A very moderate 13.5% alc - good old times...
    Shows best with perhaps 45-60 min of air in the open bottle, and for sure still not at the end of its life. While there are no signs of oxidization would still drink remaining bottles over the next 5-7 years. Initially 89, later a solid 91-92

  • jonahfactor Likes this wine:

    August 2, 2016 - The "divine kiss," this has lost most of its fruit during its years in the bottle. Upfront vanilla notes (American oak?) that persist through the finish. Mostly secondary at this stage, with tar, molten chocolate and espresso notes throughout. No browning and a great necklace. Was in its glory a decade ago. Today it's a novelty. (��= Pass, as it sits in the glass today)
