1993 - a lovely wine. This label comes with very high expectations and the wine delivered exactly what was expected.

Slightly disappointing.
Less complex and integrated than previous bottles. Seems unevolved and even young?
Good, not great.

Getting in the mood for this saturdays' USA95-tasting.
Pop'n pour. Deep garnet colour and a dense core.
Bright dark red fruit, graphite, sandalwood, grilled bellpepper, tobaccoleaf and leather. Also fresh cut herbs, like mint and sage. Silky tannines, lovely acidity. This has a very cool, graceful, slightly rustic and old-fashioned (maybe even European) Cabernet personality. Label states a mind-boggling 12,8% ABV...!
A great wine, especially for Bordeaux-holics like me. Prime-time drinking, will easily stay on this plateau for 3-5 more years. Would love to taste this in a line-up with some top-tier 2001 Leftbankers!
