    April 14, 2019 - From 6L, mineral and iron, just a whisper left of some matured black fruit, underbrushy, light tannin, medium acid, iron and/or mint palate.

    July 23, 2018 - Book Club - Grand Finale (FMIII in the OC): Seiber picked a few of these magnums from a friend of mine and he pulled this one tonight. Wine will surprise you. How is this 33 years old? The color, impeccable, not a hint of bricking sitting next to a '99 Ridge MB, it might look younger. Crazy. This was much more old world than the MB because of the moss and dusty/earth aromas. Light cherry / red currant and a noticeable splash of dried mint. This is really a special bottle.

    July 21, 2018 - Some wines with friends (My House In The South OC): From magnum. Man, this was good, and as good/pleasing in class as the 2000 La Tache that was in the preceding flight we did. It's hard for me to say that I liked this BV better but given that we had the mag to drink from, I got to taste this several times and it was in a word--amazing. Juicy and vibrant fruit, plenty of cherry with a dusty quality. The balance on this is impeccable and at 30+ years, it shows a freshness and regal quality. Beautiful.

    June 12, 2018 - Outranked a bit by a 1986 dominus served alongside, this GdL was still showing well, with tobacco and cedar notes. Minimal remaining fruit, but the structure and acidity still allowed for a nice drinking experience. My impression was that this tasted like a well made wine with age, but rather nondescript despite its good bones. Agree with recommendations to drink now

    April 22, 2018 - Dark red color, still vibrant. Cherry & chocolate in the nose. Fruit still vibrant, long mouth feel. Can tell fruit is starting to fade and delivery of flavor is consistent with a wine of this age. Drink now, do not wait much longer!
