    August 31, 2018 - Given the age of this wine the colour of it is astounding. Ruby with only slight orange hue at the rim. While the nose is not that intense, but complex with aromas of garrigue, cherries, dark fruits, on the palate it is a real knock out. Intense, but also fine, with additional hints of incense, dark cherry fruit und forest floor. The tannin is ripe, smooth and has low level and the wine has good length. The 14,6 % alc. are completely hidden. With time it even gains in intensity and gets additional notes of coffee and tobacco. I had this wine multiple times in the last 15 years, rating from 94 to 95, but this time it shows itself probably better than ever. Nevertheless I don't believe in a decade or more of positive evolution. Well stored examples should have a magical peak now. If you have multiple bottles in your cellar, try them and have a close look at the evolution over the next years. 5/13/19/8. 96 points from the WA (Jeb Dunnuck in 2016) -2023+?

    June 22, 2014 - Consistent with previous note – amazingly vibrant after nearly 20 years – this particular bottle would easily have held up for another 10.

    June 12, 2014 - UWS (@ JB): Beautiful bouquet with garrigue and pleasant barnyard. On the palate ripe red fruits, some chocolate, beautiful acidity and pleasant sweetness. Completely dissolved tannin and integrated oak. A beautiful and lush wine still. Really lovely to taste this again! At its peak now and I wouldn't wait too long before drinking this wine if I had any bottles left.

    March 16, 2013 - Casual evening at Bill's (Vancouver, BC): Tasted blind – Riper nose with white pepper and dark roasted fruits. Fairly extracted on the palate with more dark fruits and a little bit of heat creeping through on the finish. Tannins are firm and drying with average acidity. Drinking well now. Very good.

    October 5, 2012 - Second bottle. Light medium red. Very nice nose of blackberries, earth, spice and some light red cherry. The nose darkens a bit and becomes riper as it sits in the bottle. Nice balanced flavours and a fairly resolved finish. Not the ripe monster other bottles have been.
