1970 vintage. Oak in balance. Dark fruits & tannins. Delicious. — 6 days ago
This was purchased 16 years ago and stored perfectly since. I saw the 2016 version was WOY at WS so I decided to crack this open. Silky smooth texture, perfectly mature, and very refined and classy. Embarrassed to say I bought this for $25 in 2004! Too bad I only had 1. — 13 days ago
I always get cedar from St Julien, so that old familiar friend reappears in this 2014. Silky blackberry and cassis slip through an edge of muscly earth and powerful tannins. Virginia pipe tobacco and graphite. Wicked.
Decanted for 5 hours but id go way longer if you can. 24 would be great. — 16 days ago

Baked red raspberry, raspberry bar, vanilla, kirsch / dripping elegant with elegant, rich, textured black fruit / med+ throughout with prominent acid structure / a wine of serious clarity, but also of generous fruit / vanilla-mocha note comes through at the finish — a month ago
