    June 8, 2019 - Winebar [4 Whites, 8 Reds, & 4 *shared* bottles] from 06/07/19] (Vintage Wines Ltd., San Diego, CA): Oscar, THANK you for sharing this OUTSTANDING wine! :)

    N: ATTRACTIVE, but TOUGH to parse, though I'd say the Grenache was making itself felt, coming across ALMOST Burgundian; Smoke, berries, earth, hints of oranges -- in no particular order; Intensity lurking

    P: LM body; Very NICE, ALMOST swtish frt firmed by just a smidigin of astringent pucker which fairly seamlessly morphs into a very LONG, BALANCED finish with a delectable tangy/swtness & very, VERY slight bitterness, which should be a + with food. At its zenith (or poss a BIT beyond?), but should still hold through '22... safely. 13.5% ABV; My EXC+/Exceptional- (94-97/100 on that scale). 91 pts RJonWine (11/25/08) & 89 WS (3/15/94).

    April 13, 2014 - 1990 ANYTHING Dinner (Our house): This was surprisingly fresh. Nice mature fruit with a pretty sweet strawberry note on the nose and palate. Not very deep, but pretty and easy. Medium finish.

    February 16, 2014 - Still going. Certainly well on the downward slope, but very pleasant drinking.

    November 3, 2011 - Holding up surprisingly well and better than the previous bottle. Mature saddle leather, plums with a even little heat initially. Finish is longer than I remembered before.

    (E. Guigal Châteauneuf-du-Pape) Group's #5 (my #7) – 72 pts; 1, 2, 3, 0 – Light medium bricking red color with cloudiness; sexy spicy plum, herbes de Provence and horseradish nose; mature, tart red fruit, herbs, mineral and tart plum palate, that gets even more mature tasting after 1/2 hour; medium-plus finish
