    February 7, 2021 - Crazy delicious. Want more. So good with the lamb.

    December 7, 2019 - Still going strong. Opened about 30 minutes before drinking. Probably would have benefited from being opened about 2 hours before. Went perfectly with roasted goat at Tar & Roses in Santa Monica.

    November 16, 2018 - Kleur: Helder oranjebruin. Duidelijke verkleuring. Aroma / bouquet: Wow. Opvallend tertiair. Gaat dit nog goed komen? Eerste en - ook daarna - overheersende aroma's zijn die van maggi, madeira en zoete ketjap. Smaak / Afdronk: Indrukwekkend. Verfijnde en complexe powerwijn. Geconcentreerd, subtiel bittere en drop-achtige tannines en een extreem lange afdronk. Algemeen / potentieel: Prachtige, gerijpte Ch9dP. In de neus 'bejaard' maar in de mond opvallend jeugdig. Of is dat bittertje het begin van het einde? Hoe dan ook: NU drinken. Deze wijn wordt vanaf nu NIET beter. 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Smaak / Afdronk: 17 + Algemeen / potentieel: 8 = 92/100

    Google Translate:

    Color: Bright orange-brown. Clear discoloration. Aroma / bouquet: Wow. Striking tertiary. Is this going to be okay? First and - afterwards - predominant aromas are those of maggi, madeira and sweet soy sauce. Taste / Finish: Impressive. Sophisticated and complex power wine. Concentrated, subtly bitter and liquorice-like tannins and an extremely long aftertaste. General / potential: Beautiful, matured Ch9dP. In the nose 'elderly' but in the mouth remarkably youthful. Or is that bitterness the beginning of the end? Anyway: drink NOW. This wine will NOT be better from now on. 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 12 + Taste / Finish: 17 + General / potential: 8 = 92/100

    August 3, 2018 - Completely agree with "mpenzi divai" on this bottle... May be past prime, but still a lot of magic from this wine. Dark plums, cherry cola, chocolate, and yes, stewed fruit/prunes. Lot's of sediment. Agreeing that this needs to be drunk now.
