Young and student but lovely depth of fruit. Cassis and lead pencil. Some more exotic notes but, after a few hours, still quite compact. Great stuff

While still quite beautiful it doesn’t possess the color, intensity or complexity it once had. Honestly a bit muted but opens up nicely. I feel like the 82 is still steaming along and the 86 just isn’t quite what it used to be. Nevertheless, it’s a damn good wine to be sure

dark fruit, tobacco, cigar box, pencil shavings,

gobs of juicy fruit, bay leaf and bell pepper finish

over time fruit leans to roll ups, as well as including dried prunes and dates

Tasted blind. Deep tawny color. Heavy nose with lots of drama going on. Notes of old wet cedar desk, red fruits, pepper, mocha, dark moist earth and some spice. Great structure. Has a perfect balance of fruit that strongly remains in the picture with structure and acidity. Silky, coats the mouth. Might have been the WOTN until the next bottle was poured.

Tasted blind. Deep amber tawny color with a powerful nose. Exotic. Notes of red cherries, old cedar desk, plum, mint/menthol, cinnamon, and a little molasses. Tannins fully resolved, leaving silky juice that got better and better over the evening. At first this seemed like it was a bit past its prime, but with a ton of air over the day/night, this powered up and reminded us it's one of the best bottles of grape juice ever made. Ethereal is perhaps the best word to describe the experience. Thanks Murray!

Tasted blind. Tawny color with light rims. Old wine nose. Notes of raspberry, cola, old cedar desk, some tobacco and a little menthol. Rich and long in the mouth. Lighter than the 59 next to it. Also tighter, but opens up over the evening. Really good but not as good as the 59.

Tasted blind. Reddish scarlet color. Odd nose with notes like roseste and asian tea that led me to think this was Italian. Rustic with chicory notes that come on. Good wine, but the lowest performer of the 45/59/61/82/86 Moutons we were treated to tonight.

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny color. Closed nose. Later in the evening (after wine had been opened for 9+ hours), notes of black cherry, tobacco leaf, cedar desk, gravel stone emerge. Very rich. Still a baby and evolving. Better tonight than the 82 Mouton. 95+
