1994 Vintage- Licorice, smoke, desiccated orange peel, still some acidity but on the decline.

Holding together much better than the 89 at this point. Lovely structure and lingering quality.

Birthday wine #3: opened up nicely in the glass. Smoke, mineral, cherry, seamless. This is going to be a great wine for 10+ years.

Birthday wine #2: notes of cherry, raspberry, chocolate, Unami. Soft tannins. Graceful. A bit short but still great.

A prefect Claret color, intense but translucent ruby. The aroma is noticeable from the hip, flowers like violets, sweet cedar, mature plum and cassis rise effortlessly from the glass. The palate is strength without effort, superb length, freshness and purity.

There isn't enough space in Delectable to fully express my thoughts about 1999 Haut-Brion. What can be said about this monumental first growth? Tasted over 90 minutes, it evolved slowly with cascading notes of black currant, blueberry, perfumy violets and forest floor. Fresh and pure on the palate, with silky tannins, superb balance and a lengthy, seductive finish interlaced with subtle minerality and flavors of cedar and spice. A truly great wine in every sense. about Haut-Brion.

3+ hour decant and it was just so velvety smooth. Still young, but what a beautiful wine.
