This was really good. Tasted blind, I thought it a CdP. But did get 2007 right. Smooth and very well balanced.

Amazing. Dark berry and black cherry with a bit of an herbal edge riding in on a black velvet magic carpet.

2011, maybe a little young and tannic but a good wine, should be really tasty in a few years

Intense but slightly awkward this time. I've got another bottle I bet is better.

Pure violet beauty in the aromatics. Pretty raspberry hard candy blots of spicy meat with complex texture. Great pepper. Incredible at its age. Superb.
