Decided to open my first bottle of the ‘13s. Gorgeous nose of ripe blue and black fruit. Very much fruit forward. Tannins have softened and even though the fruit is very ripe and in your face, the acidity and tannins ring a balance, the structure is excellent. Feels like sweet blackberry silk in your mouth. Drinking wonderfully now. Wow! — 11 days ago
Wonderful wine, but worth $900+ in secondary market?!?

Same comments as before. Didn’t realize I had pulled one of these just a few weeks ago. Oops. Still have a few left I’ll remember to let sit. Drinking well for an ‘18. Still needs a solid 45+ min decant now though. Dense nice mouthfeel. Black and red fruit, wet earth, sweet tobacco. Smooth chewy tannins. Nice acidity that’ll let this age nicely for another 8-10 years. Good smooth finish. Alcohol hidden pretty well. — a month ago
