Don’t understand this wine. Dinner of 10, no one was impressed. Don’t think this is a bottle with decades ahead.

WOTN!!! Truly in a great, great place right!
A phenomenal Bordeaux showing everything that I adore: pencil shavings, granite minerality , gorgeously integrated and a 90+ second finish. The only thing missing to make this a perfect 10 is my good friend
@Ron R sitting next to me enjoying the bottle that he gifted to Christine & I!!
You are a stud my friend! In the spirit of friendship this was shared and enjoyed with a few of my great friends:
@Drew feinberg and Bill Wachter. Come to Think of it, I think my friend Brandon may have had a glass of this as well? I’m sure they will all add their own tasting notes shortly. @brandon brandon
Im not sure what we traded in order for me to get this bottle but I am 100% certain that you received the short end of the stick!!!!!
I’ll make it up to you, 🙌👏👏👏🙌.

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny, translucent and old looking. Awesome nose. Notes of leather saddle, pencil lead, currants, cherry, soil, and some toasted hickory. All guessed 61 Bordeaux. This got better through the night and was at its best in the last glass.

Drank in the barrel room & cellar at the estate. Underwhelming considering the notoriety. Was expecting so much more. Still so young, so there may be more underneath it's surface.

Interesting wine. I have one friend that is in the biz of determining fake wines. They think this was a fake, so I decided to open it. Not corked but flat. Acidity gone. Lots of cedar present. Then another friend, one that’s known as a great collector wanders by and says it’s real for sure. And likes it! Don’t you just love that about wine. Good, bad, real, fake, it’s all a toss up!!
