    October 25, 2019 - One of the best wines I have had this year. Explosive blue and currant fruit flavors yet completely balanced. Nearly perfect. I rarely think that 15% alcohol wines live up to their ratings. This one is an exception. Should drink at peak for another decade or so.

    January 3, 2019 - tasted blind
    nose-aromatic bouquet of roses, raspberries and other (wild) berries, with a whiff of acetone
    mouth - wild berry, confected, fruit forward with a touch of heat. a good cocktail wine.

    December 27, 2018 - Christmas evening. Together with Valbuena 2003. The Erasmus was more elegant and mineral then Valbuena. Both Dark color and mature in the nose
    and both very fine.

    November 17, 2017 - {bought on release and cellared; perfect fill; double decanted at home 1.5 hours before arrival at MK & BS's house, decanted there x another hour before we poured} Huge, heroic wine. Liquourishly lavish nose, with exotic Garnacha, touch of petrol, port-like concentration, immense palate presence and length, lots of minerals as well as the fruit. Just the right side of too big. Great match to lamb chops, skirt steak and then cheeses. Complex. Despite size and alcohol (label lists 15%, who knows what the real number is) one keeps going back for another sip....No, not using words like ethereal or finesse... but elegance is there too. Sexy, smoky, great balance, very very fine tannins. Not a sledgehammer wine despite the size and concentration. As Sleeping Bear wrote, "Lush but not heavy."Fascinating wine, especially for a Burgundy person like me.

    This 11 year old wine was double decanted then decanted again for a total of 2.5 hours. If you PopNPour I doubt you will see the pleasures of this wine. Look at prior notes, the longer the decant... the higher the scores. Tonight at least 94 pts, could be 95. This will live a very long time as the balance is very very good.
