This took an hour decanted to open up. Out of the bottle it was clumsy and shy. Two hrs in it was a show stopper.

Fantastic mature Bordeaux. Plenty of little complex notes hiding in there.

Wow. All there. The nose, the complex flavors, the lengthy finish. Couldn't ask for anything more. It tells a story in your glass, and pushes and pulls in all the right ways. May be the wine of the year.

Not as good as it should have been. A bit less powerful than expected?

More electricity than other 89's with no less opulence! Pure magic leaping from the glass!
