Still quite primary. Inky cool fruit with restrained blue berries and graphite. Good balance.

As good as this wine tastes today, I still won't open any of mine for another 10-15 years cuz it's only going to get so much better. Dry dark & blue fruits with dried flowers on the nose. The fruits on the palate; dry blackberries, black plum skin, black cherries, stewed strawberries hang in the background, steeped black tea, dry brown earth with crushed rocks, tannins are more pronounced than the others today, some figs & dates, stems, soft leather, drip coffee, high acid and finishes brighter and rounder than the others so far.

Liquorice, strong cedar wood, graphite, sweet spices, black fruits, hint of bell pepper, black chocolate, a little bit funk. Finish is sort of sweet somehow. Solid. 2000 vintage

From half bottle. A wedding gift from 2008, finally opened and enjoyed with roasted beef and family. Complete and harmonious, if not particularly striking for complexity or impact. Well bred.

Dark and mid red fruit, lots of dark chocolate and coffee grounds, crushed rocks, leathery, barrel toast and baking spice. This one is a bit more approachable now.
