Inky, dark, red cherry color. Sweet tobacco, gentlemen's musk, white, creamy floral on the nose. The palette is smooth, velvet, with very subtle layers. I can see why some reviews have mentioned that it seems flat. It doesn't have tannic layers. This wine is super elegant, non-pretentious and easy to drink alone or with non-complex dishes. Could easily age another 10+ years but what's the fun in that!! Drink now!

So good. Tastes very Merlot; polished, probably still has 10 years to go

Subtle, attractive with layered red berry fruit, touch of five spice and rose petal, sweet tobacco, touch of graphite, feminine, attractive. Lacks on the palate though, drinkable but lacking the definition that you get on the nose, finish does have some elegant red fruit but still too drying to make this really shine.

Good tasting, finished with this "troisieme" red and black fruits, on the nose and the palate, long finish and well structured, 09 is a great vintage rich and ripe, no need for more aging

Dark red with a wonderful dry fruit. Paired with lamb and added a dense flavor.

Powerful, but still true to the area. Many '09's seem new world. Roots run deep in

Tannin from the vintage, elegance from the terroir & complexity from the decades.

Bought on release and perfect storage for the last 35 years--subterranean and temperature controlled cellar near the finger lakes. 1982 richness and beautiful aromatics. Perfectly mature but not yet on the downside.
