Another 2000 soaring beyond expectations. Drinking beautifully from mag and purveyed by our host @Mike R. I can’t remember the last time I was underwhelmed by a wine with pedigree from a magnum. Bigger IS better.

As good as California gets. This is in a perfect place right now. Elegant, floral, and perfectly integrated, a true treat.

This had beautiful berry fruit, spice with notes of earth, leather, dried herbs & tobacco leaf. Purchased on release that is holding up well.

Color:deep color with cloudy violet color, Aroma:spicy nose, First Impression:spicy but it should take 2 hours to open it,, Taste:Bordeaux Haut Medoc like taste with complexity. It means its taste is changed into elegant over years. @, Popina, 170611
