Quiet on the nose but pure elegance and poise on the palate.

Soft hint of cassis, very savory with loads of mushroom and soy. Completely resolved tannins, acidity still in the game, and throwing some minor sediment for the age

Remarkably alive, not for long once open, but a glimpse of something wonderful. Classic leathery old Bordeaux

Still fairly firm with rich dark fruit. Has a lovely savory quality with roasted herbs, anise, leather, and chocolate. Very smooth palate but needs time to open up. 2003

Very young and hard at first, but several hours softens it and reveals the potential. I'll revisit this in another 10 years.

Deep ruby color, pronounced intensity with aromas of baking spice, leather, eucalyptus, violet, cherry, coffee, and tobacco. On the palate, high acidity with full bodied flavors of black currant, black cherry, mint, vanilla, and toast. A long, silky finish!
