96 Points

Thursday, January 9, 2014 - Bordeaux matters, along with Burgundy and Champagne and Port and ... (Ripple Restaurant in Washington D.C.): In spite of decanting, giving it plenty of air, and plenty of time in glass, the wine is quite reduced at this stage. But the potential is superb. And the mid palate is super impressive. There is a distinct note of red cherry pit that pleased me, but combined with vivid floral freshness that came to the fore on the finish. This is going to turn into a very special wine, but owners should not bother opening yet. Enormous thanks to Randy for bringing this and "taking one for the team" as the saying goes.
