This is still gorgeous and fresh. A lovely savory nose and palate. A whiff of band aid and deep raspberry. Some iodine, leather, dried herbs and an animal depth and salinity. Really spectacular stuff. So nice to not have sweetness and oak but a gorgeous long wine.

Reddish amber. Sensual nose. Notes of black cherry, Cuban cigar, cranberry, forest floor, some Mediterranean herbs and a little bit of of mint. Incredibly balanced in the mouth. Complex, tannins are soft. Killer juice. 7 hours in this was singing. In a great drinking window with no signs of fading.

In a beautiful place. Youthful vibrant nose that evolves with every pour. Palate is a bit thin. The thought is this vintage peaked a couple years back. Last glass was cedar, lavender, tobacco and graphite

A real treat. Unbelievably youthful for a wine as aged as it's owner but not as decrepit!😂 a wonderfully layered wine that will be good for many years to come.

Really in a nice place. Lucky enough to have this vintage 2x in 3 months. Still youthful and doesn't want to give up its aromas. Drink now or hold
