From magnum and so mineral and long. One of the unappreciated wines of our book. World class.

2004 from Mag. Those was my wine of the night. It combine a vaguely Rhone-like aromas with leafy/minty Cab family scents. The texture is luscious, deep, balanced. The finish is very long. I think this can age for another 5+ easily.

A 'just because' bottle. The kids were napping and I got to eat a lunch of artisan cheese and sourdough with fresh figs. Savory and slightly cooked fruit aromas. This bottle showing slight oxidation.

From 1.5. Spectacular nose, mature aromas of smoked/dried meat, dried herbs, crushed rock, sour cherries. Ready to drink but seems like it can improve in complexity. Can mature another 10+ years in this format.

Decanted for 30 minutes. Plum, blueberry, balsamic, smoke, and lavender. Very good. Perfect for grilled chicken and shrimp.
