Continuing the anniversary year wines! Plenty of life left in this bottle. Wish I’d bought more.

Still so much depth and ripeness for its age. Dried fruit and mild olive. No barnyard or funk but just enough earth to make me feel it's balance.

Another great bottle of older Bosquet. Dark, yet balanced upon opening and only got prettier with notes of sandalwood after some air. A complex wine that was still youthful and intense without being too fruity. A pleasure to drink now and should be great for years to come.

NKOTB(hanging tough). Mellow fruit but a slight tannic bite make this still delectable. Surprisingly good length. Dried fruit, tobacco and rhubarb. Drink it yesterday.

Torn because the flavors showed so much delicious transparency and development--Leather! Cherry! Spice box!--but the lower acidity left it feeling a little flat.
