  • The first day's tasting was exemplary with excellent pure fruit flavors and nicely balanced spice and a bit of acid. The second day was not very good even though it was pumped down with a Vacuvin.

  • If not perfection, the closest thing to it. Still dark purple with tawny bricking at the rims. Very expressive bouquet leaps from the glass. Notes of ripe plums, blackberries, cedar, saddle leather and accets of mint and thyme. Did i get some orange peel? Yes! Very complex with different snents every time i lifted the glass. That complex olifactory assault would have been enough, but the flavor was something else -- good balance but the mouth caressing smoothness was unbelievable, soft, velvet tannins caressing every sensory receptors the wine contacted, long finish that went on forever, A tour de force i could drink forever, but alas, my last bottle! Enjoyed with a veggie cassoulet. Perfect!

  • Slow O'd for a hour. Served at a party; drank the remainder the next evening. An excellent C9P, though it did take a while for the brett to blow off. Well made; could probably improve with a couple more years sideways. Drink or hold.

  • 14 yrs old vintage at this point. Opened 4+ hrs before dinner, decanted 2 hrs before dinner. At start of dinner, it was perfect, smooth, with dark red and prune fruit, earth, mineral, balanced with medium acidity and wonderful elegant chalky dusty tannins. After 2 more hours, the fruit continued to emerge, to add a lustful element.

  • PnP, consumed over three nights. This took a couple of hours to really open up, then held straight and steady through the three days it was open, so clearly lots of life ahead, with plenty of room to continue to improve, which is saying something, as it’s already really, really good. My first of four bottles, wishing I had more cellared.
