Banging! Bright acidity, nice cedar and red currant notes, lively.

This bottle came around, but seemed a little past peak.

Amazing color and nose. Decanted for a hour. Really allowed the cherry and cassis to shine through in layer after layer of flavor as the night wore on. A beautiful experience.

Amazing. This is the perfect example of a perfect bottle. I would be generous in guessing 1990 but really is more like a 1996 in freshness. Might be my wine of the year!

Plenty of darkness, good body and length.

I’m not the biggest fan of old bottles because mostly the wines are past the prime, corked , spoiled, whatever especially when guests have so much passion behind the bottle , but this one was pretty special

From a bottle with a slightly sunken cork but a good fill. Nice old wine color. Tawny with some reddish in the rims. Great nose that needed 4 hours of air to become impactful. But in the mouth the fruit and acidity never matched how good the nose is. A disappointment when compared to past bottles of this.
