    August 27, 2019 - Spicy, suave, silky and intense, the fruit is perfectly ripe, sweet, fresh and pure. The wine offers that unique combination of density paired with refinement, lift, complexity and length. And this is still young, so pop a cork now to check it out, if you have a few bottles, or age it for another decade to see what happens.

    July 28, 2019 - Blind, Riedel sommelier grand cru bordeaux
    A great cali cab. Powerful, mighty but in his way elegant. A lot of red and black berries. Concentrated but not jammy or overextracted. The alcohol of 15,6% is perfectly integrated. Still in his primary stage. For the next 20 years. 98+

    July 20, 2019 - 07 Cariad, 07 IX, 06 IX, and 05 Cariad all tasted blind together. Compared to all the others, my pour of this was GONE before the other three. And it wasn't even close. This is a stellar Napa Cabernet that went exceptionally well with a ribeye steak. BlackBerry, hint of truffle, chocolate, herbs, wildflowers, a little bit delicate but still full throttle and full-bodied from start to finish. Some people were guessing the entire lineup was Shiraz, and with this one and the 05 Cariad I could definitely understand that guess. In my opinion, best wine on the table, even versus the 1963 Berry Brothers & Rudd Grahams!

    June 22, 2019 - Kleur: Diep ondoordringbaar donkerrood met een subtiele verkleuring aan de rand. Aroma / bouquet: Wow, dit is een extreme snuffelwijn. Complex en gelaagd bouquet. De eerste indruk wordt bepaald door een mix van donker fruit en stalgeur. Verse groene kruiden. Bittere chocola. Prachtig verweven hout. Het blijft maar doorgaan met elk kwartier een ander accent. Smaak / Afdronk: Dik-sappig. Zacht frise zuurgraad. Krachtige, briljant gerijpte tannines met een droppige structuur. Veel van alles waardoor ook het alcoholpercentage van 15,6% perfect binnen de balans blijft. Het meest bijzondere aan deze wijn is de afdronk. Lang en in een volmaakte balans. Algemeen / potentieel: Dit is een wijn waarop werkelijk iets af te dingen valt. Beter gaat het niet worden. Na dertien jaar nog onvoorstelbaar jong, krachtig en vitaal. Dit is een wijn om lang te laten liggen! 50 + Kleur: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 15 + Smaak / Afdronk: 20 + Algemeen / potentieel: 10 = 100/100

    Google Translate:

    Color: Deeply impenetrable dark red with a subtle discoloration on the edge. Aroma / bouquet: Wow, this is an extreme sniff-wine. Complex and layered bouquet. The first impression is determined by a mix of dark fruit and stable odor. Fresh green herbs. Bitter chocolate. Beautifully intertwined wood. It keeps on going with a different accent every fifteen minutes. Taste / Aftertaste: Thick and juicy. Soft, fresh acidity. Powerful, brilliantly aged tannins with a drop-like structure. A lot of everything, so that the alcohol percentage of 15.6% stays perfectly within the balance. The most special thing about this wine is the aftertaste. Long and in a perfect balance. General / potential: The perfect wine... It's not going to get any better. After thirteen years still incredibly young, powerful and vital. This is a wine that will last! 50 + Color: 5 + Aroma / bouquet: 15 + Taste / Finish: 20 + General / potential: 10 = 100/100
