A recent gift from someone with whom I do business. Nice gift.
Started slow...still needed more time than a hour decant. But, really started to blossom on the second pour.
This was about as savory & herbaceous as a Napa Cabernet gets. After 19 years in bottle slightly over delivering on its RP rating.
A better Allen Brothers Ribcap wine than the 04 Cos D’ Estournel at this point & time. — a month ago
Interesting medium body, minerally white wine from southern Sicily. Picked up an earthy edge. Went well with shrimp scampi and linguini in peppery garlic sauce. Would have scored it higher wasn’t it for the fact that at the end it went a little flat and wasn’t able to hold or attention or interest. — 6 days ago

Another generous gift for my Cabernet tasting matching the theme of 2009. I have not tasted this producer before mainly trying Cos and Montrose from Saint Estephe previously. It was more full bodied and silky than expected reflecting the vintage. Black and red fruits. A little lost for words after the Lafite to be honest. Most enjoyable however. — 2 months ago
