Group tasted blind and guessed vintages between ‘10 and ‘14. Wonderful wine that is young but drinking so well right now. Wish I had another bottle!

Sexy, warm cherries, charming and open, great length, no heaviness, tealeaf, fresh ground coffee. Tannines are integrating. Comfortable like grandpa's leather chair.

1995 vintage is drinking beautifully. Excellent structure and depth, dark fruit, smooth tannins, lovely balance and finish.
