    September 1, 2020 - Soldera night
    1998 tawny aged wine with a lovely bees wax nose and some licorice. Just perfectly resolved tannins and more classic a wine than complex. Shorter on the palate as the night wore on (93 points)

    2003 more subtle nose a little sois bois, great structure and lots of fruit my favorite wine between the 98 and the 04 (94 points)

    2004 quite closed on both nose and palate, probably may be in a slight shut down phase, good structure. My least favorite wine of the night (92 points)

    2007 decanted, amazing rose from the beginning. Very approachable with roses that evolved into pineapples later on into the evening. Just so crazy concentrated fruit and intense flavors that went on and on. My WOTN (95 points)

    2009 decanted, a floral sensual nose! Just so beautiful and approachable. Perhaps even more structure than the 07 but not quite as ready. Just so much potential but likely could do with more cellar time. Try in 3-5 years (94+ points)

    November 2, 2019 - 9 hours in the decanter before pouring a glass. The wine is ethereal, in texture, refreshing acidity frames red, strawberry fruit. cola, saddlewood, rose petals, violets, fruit cake round put the nose. Long finish. A beautiful wine.

  • Ms. Bubblehead Likes this wine:

    August 5, 2018 - On the nose, very expressive with lots of red fruits, a hint of smoke, rose patel, quite floral, on palate, darker fruits were shown with a bit more tannin than other vintages, various spices, dark cherry and mature plum, showed great structure. The finish was very long. It was powerful yet elegant. I think it can be enjoyed for at least another 10 years.
