Still pretty young. Refined, graphite giving way to pipe tobacco and bitter chocolate but still waiting to come together. Mid-palate presence seemed jumbled.

Beautiful wine....kept getting better and better. Didn't last long enough to most likely peak!

So soft and elegant! Crushing BDX game! Super classic black fruit and pencil shavings

Wow. How boring. Flabby, no fruit, dry, thin, acidic on the end. Good length but too bad flavor profile sucked. Bad bottle not bad vintage.

Some bricking on the rim. Perfumed with a ton of earth. Hits every part of the palate very nicely. Good finish with sleek acid. Excellent pairing with dry aged ribeyes.

Smooth, slightly smoky, a slight twang on the tongue...probably the spray from the field.

Still so fresh, great structure. Took about an hour to really open up but silky smooth. Underrated vintage that was showing beautifully

Close to an 89. Dense. Tight. Nothing at all to fault.
