Wow....even better than the 73 Martha's! I keep saying the 70's were a magical time in the Valley and not just 74, 78 which were tad ripe and now mostly over the hill. These off vintages are more structured and just drinking incredibly well even now! Primary fruit with no pruning and round balance tannins and acids. This 77 Lot 2 was just a incredibly experience :)) — 3 months ago
In imperial format for DK's 50th bash in Vegas! Easy please sweet core mellow quaffable big ass bottle to share and steaks that taste like popcorn (fake butter) at STK Cosmo. But then like the slogan says..."this is NOT your Daddy's Steakhouse". — 4 months ago
This 73 now out drinks the famed legendary 74's! Off years sometimes outshine years that seemed to peak early and can develop more secondary flavors. This was beautiful for 2.5 hours and with fine sediments and no decanting. Richer the 77 Stags Lot 2 but Stags tad more elegant. — 3 months ago
Ripe and roast meats, after 30 minutes got tad jammy prunes which lost all backbone and sagged. — 3 months ago
