    November 10, 2021 - Second time having this wine this year. First-round, we decanted for only an hour before consumption and we couldn't penetrate the structure, only got hints. This time around I gave about eight hours of air combined in the decanter and bottle. The wine reached another dimension. It was glorious! Full of cedar, tobacco, red fruit intermixing with black with an immaculate length. Probably the last glass was the best.

    This wine is still a baby but probably can reach the heights of the 1988 vintage in 5-10 years.

    November 3, 2021 - Drank side-by-side with an 88' Sassicaia, which was the WOTN, but the 98' was still quite tasty. Not as evolved or elegant as the 88, a bit bigger and heavier, but still great wine.

    October 18, 2021 - nose - earth, prune
    mouth - stunning wine. showing great development while still presenting a very fresh outward face. lovely balance. reminded me a touch of a aged Camartina and I daresay that if tasted blind I would have called it a Tuscan coast Cab.

    mouth - great fruit, still young, even perhaps a tad syrupy. hold
