Wow! So underrated - such a sour cherry flavor! Great elegance - what a wine should be! Drinks now

Early on, this wine was better than the 90. It was rounder and was more fruit forward but yielded to the 90 on the long decant. Out of magnum as well.

Very nice and ripe to drink. I disagree with Wine Spectator who apparently lowered the rating of this wine to an 84. I think it still ranks high and drinks well with strong tannins. Slightly dry with a tinge of fruit and walnut. Goes well with red meat.

Light weight BDX. Almost reminded me of an 10 year old AmericanPinot. Good with the steak but nota discussion wine.
