If I could bathe in this. Complex and complete. A must have from a producer who has made magic in crappy soils. Was one of the I bathed before. Now baptized. The most shocking thing aside is that this 2001 has hardly any rim variation.

We're going to let this one run while we devour a burger at Spruce, one of the best restaurants in San Francisco.
Yes, old world. Back in a min to see what happens.

Absolutely amazing. Crushed wild forest strawberries and raspberries, soft leather, rhubarb compote with elegance and a 40sec finish. Yippie!
