Wine lover, taster, researcher.
Some initial cellar funk on the nose that blew off and then this continued to reveal more and more fruit over the next couple hours. That last glass finally revealing the potential and showing that this will still improve with a few more years in bottle. — 2 days ago
A lovely blanc de blanc now 18yrs past the vintage but this spent 12 of those on the lees. The fruit has matured into a place where the major notes are pear, honey, and nuts while all that lees age brings the buttered biscuit finish. In a great place right now. — 3 days ago
These are monster wines that demand food. Everything here is turned up to 11 (except the alcohol which is turned up to 16.5!!!) from the viscous texture to the rich pruney fruit. These are beastly wines built to go the distance. Approaching a drinking window on this 2007 but I’ll hold my other one for 5 more years. — 2 days ago
Have been fortunate enough to have this wine 3 times now. It’s just so good. Iron, blood, pepper, black fruit and a finish that continues on for over a minute. I still think this will improve with a couple of years, but it is truly a special wine now. — 19 days ago
