Back for the 20ème année (20th year) release here. Ruby red, very good clarity. Funk and figs in nose. Flavors: cola, funk; raspberry strawberry and cherry on finish. Seed tannins unresolved after 30, 60 minutes but fun and easy to drink while you are waiting. Definitely figs in the aftertaste. I’d stock a few of these away and replenish every year. If you must drink French reds, why not start here? Yummy — 15 days ago

I remember loving this the last time I had it (August ‘19). Still lovely. Not as juicy as previous notes. Still Blackberry, blueberry, and vanilla. Less fruity than I remember but that makes sense. Black olive / almost iodine blew off in an hour replaced by pencil shavings. There is a molasses quality to this I associate with the ‘13 Roy estate and ‘13 Roy Cor Leonis. A ‘13 thing? This wine makes me think of a song by Black Keys - Thickfreakness for some reason. Look it up you’ll thank me. — 2 months ago
What a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley this is.
Full bodied with medium acidity.
Showing black fruits with cedar, light vanilla, tobacco leaf, chocolates, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, coffee, cola and herbs.
Long finish with fine grained tannins.
Fabulous right out of the bottle, and much better after some airtime.
This 15 year old Magnum is drinking very nicely now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 15 years.
Rich and elegant. Fruit forward and well balanced.
A great wine from the great 2007 vintage. Showing great complexity and mouthfeel. A gorgeous wine.
Robert Parker 94 points.
Thank you Barry for sharing.
A great sipping wine, and good by itself or with food.
