    August 13, 2021 - In prime condition. Wonderful dried figs and mild cocoa on the nose. Took about an hour in the decanter to open. Plenty of dark cherry fruit, some pleasant tartness deep in. Balanced, integrated, terrific follow-through. This is why I have a cellar!

    May 24, 2021 - Red cherries, cranberries, tobacco, leather, tea leaves, really cool mint note toward the end of the palate. Old style with regards to oak aging; which shows on the subtle wood notes mid palate. Nice soft tannins, mellowed by 24 years, and still pretty good acid. IMO, at peak right now. Won't benefit from further aging; but may stick around here for a year or so. Paired with a porterhouse steak; which I pretended was "La Fiorentina"

    December 17, 2019 - I was concerned I waited too long to enjoy, my first note was chocolate! dark fruits very nice. I used the Corvina so I will try again tomorrow.

    March 23, 2019 - Winebar [4 Whites, 8 Reds, & 4 *shared* bottles] from 03/22/19 (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Dr. Tom, once again, THANK you for sharing this SUPERB wine! :)

    "Produced in the traditional way... [with] long wood aging and bottle refinement;" 5,380 cases made.

    N: Sour cherries with earth, vanilla, also smoke, coming forward with air; GORGEOUS, particularly in that it keeps coming up with either new or ramifications of aromas already noted!

    P: LM body; NICE, ALMOST swtish frt met by astringent pucker which does QUITE resolve by the LONG, balanced finish with a tangy/swtness to the firming, dusty tannins. CERTAINLY approachable now with food, + I can see it going another 4 or 5 yrs, though some of the tasters had recently had another bottle of the same from this questionably stored collection which was in decline. 13.5% ABV; My Exceptional-, POSS full Exceptional? 93 pts WS (Suckling) & #59/Top 100 for '02, 90 Vinous (Beltrami), but 84 WE @ $60. [As of late Mar '19, wine-searcher still shows vendors @ $75, $119, & $120.]
